Hold onto your iPhones: Apple is set to open a new store at Brickell City Centre, the under-construction $1.05 billion development in the heart of Brickell, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.

The store would be Apple’s largest location in Florida, both the Real Deal and South Florida Business Journal reported.

Apple didn’t confirm the news. But it hardly denied it either. “We haven’t made any announcements about a store at that location,” the tech company said in a short statement.

A spokeswoman for the developers of Brickell City said she could not comment.

Apple operates several stores in the Miami area with locations in Dadeland, Aventura, the Falls and Lincoln Road. (That South Beach property was part of a $370 million sale to a Spanish billionaire last year.)

Brickell City Centre’s 500,000-square-foot shopping center will open in the fall of 2016 with about 70 stores and restaurants. It is anchored by department store Saks Fifth Avenue. Other announced tenants include dine-in movie theater Cinemex and luxury retailers Valentino and Chopard. Also part of the project are condo towers, a hotel and office buildings.
