What the New Apple Store in Union Square Will Probably Look Like
Apple Insider reported this weekend that Apple has filed updated plans for its new Union Square store with the San Francisco Planning Department. The plans include renderings of the store, which include a two-story glass front and giant sliding glass doors that remind me of the giant elevator at LACMA. The proposed glass doors will be 44-feet-high and steel framed. You've got to feel for the person who's going to have to clean those bad boys.
The majority of the plans were not tweaked in the latest proposal. There is still a proposed waterfall and patio behind the store and the bronze fountain by artist Ruth Asawa will also stay.
If you're interested in reading the full report in its 258-page glory, you can see it here. (If you skip to the end there are photos of Apple's greatest hits/stores.)
