Apple is in talks with the Westfield Group for an Apple Store in the upcoming World Trade Center shopping mall. The mall is expected to open in a limited capacity in 2014, with a more general opening occurring in 2015. The talks were first reported by The New York Post, but an Apple Store at this located has been expected since 2011.

Westfield is said to have signed a lease with Victoria’s Secret — and is said to be close to deals with dozens of retailers, including Apple, J. Lindberg, Tory Burch, Theory, Michael Kors, Swatch and Abercrombie & Fitch, as well as several glamorous international brands.

A video of a concept for the new mall is below:
