Apple has plans to open a new one in Chicago, in the United States. To nothing, after all, the expansion of her stores continues at an accelerated pace, mainly outside the USA. But we can say that, if everything goes as planned, this will be another one of those considered “special”.
The newspaper The Chicago Tribune got access to images (renderings) that show what this new store would be like. It will be very close to the Chicago River (more precisely near the Michigan Bridge) and has a design that can be considered a tribute to the architect Frank Lloyd Wright and his Prairie style.
The traditional glass facades and staircases will, of course, also be part of the 1,800 square meter store design. There will also be an entrance at the street level (traffic) that goes down to a sales floor at the level of the sidewalk next to the river. Customers will have access to two large staircases or will be able to descend by an elevator.
Also according to the newspaper, Apple will present the project to the city planning committee this week, but everything is apparently just a formality, but Ma has already received the approval.
The architecture firm Norman Foster of Foster + Partners (the same as Apple Campus 2 and many other Apple stores) will be responsible for the work, which is due to start in 2016. Apple would also have already made an agreement with the Zeller Realty Group, owner of the place where the store will be installed.
Ma currently has two stores in the city: Lincoln Park and North Michigan Avenue.
This new promises! 😀
