Apple's confirmed forthcoming sanctuary in the Meatpacking District will take up three floors and occupy more than 32,000 square feet of the 60,000-square-foot (or 52,605-square-foot according to Apple Insider) complex, making it the biggest Apple Store in Manhattan, if not the world. (The current largest, in London, is 28,000 square feet.)

Apple's not getting a bulk discount on the massive chunk of square footage, either, making it one of its most expensive properties to date as well. To make the yearly rent, at an estimated $400 a square foot (versus the SoHo store's $95), the store would need to sell 36,571 80GB iPods, 8,533 black MacBooks, or 6,400 15-inch MacBook Pros. Floor plan porn after the jump.

I'm no Apple fan either, but you really can't underestimate how amazing they have been in entering the retail market. While CompUSA and Tweeter are closing all over the place, Apple is opening more and more stores. They have clearly got this thing down to an art.
