A few weeks later he admitted that Apple had no intention of recovering the poster.

Last Friday, the Heritage Committee of the Community of Madrid approved its relocation to a new building, also located in the Puerta del Sol The poster is located at number 11 of the square, between the streets and Carmen and Preciados steps of the Real Casa de Correos.

At the moment it is not known exactly when the sign will be placed in its new building, but it was not until 2013, by which, in the Strokes this year we can not see.

The building will house offices Apple company in Spain and a large new store. It was logical that Apple will not approve a billboard that would take away historic role in his most ambitious project in Spain.
