According to a report by Re/code, San Francisco officials have given Apple the permission to go ahead with the construction of the Apple Store in Union Square. Apple claims that this retail store will be ‘more iconic than the Glass Cube Fifth Avenue store in New York City.’
The store has in fact been in the works for over a year, after officials requested Apple to preserve historic elements and make it more accessible. The new iconic store will replace the previous Stockton Street Apple Store, opening up 50 job positions in the process.
The Store will consist of a two floor design, as well as huge 23 foot glass sliding doors. Behind it, will be situated a plaza and a hotel. The famous Ruth Asawa fountain behind the site will be slightly relocated to make space, which did stir up some discussion, but Apple has reassured the officials that the fountain will be fully preserved.
