Apple Plans New San Francisco Flagship Store

Apple Store

Apple has submitted plans for a new retail location at San Francisco’s Union Square to replace their current one. According to SFGate, plans for the new location emerged Thursday. The rendered retail space is a gray box with a front made entirely out of glass. Both floors of the building would be viewable from the outside.

 The current flagship location at Stockton and Ellis, so the move would just be up the street at Stockton and Post, a location recently held by Levi’s. The new store is planned to be 455 larger than the current and local officials are helping Apple bring the store to light and the extra 50 jobs it would bring to the city. They are also hoping to find more “green measures and “energy efficiencies” for what they hope will be the “Bay Area hub” for Apple shopping.

At the moment, Apple has three retail locations in San Francisco, not including their Best Buy mini-stores. Throughout 2013 Apple will be renovating or mobbing 20 of it’s retail locations to help accommodate the increased foot traffic they receive.
