After months of speculation, the precise location of the future Vancouver (BC) retail store has been located: space G030 within the Pacific Centre mall, on the Granville Street side of the complex south of Dunsmuir Street. The 6,700 square-foot space is still under construction, in the space formerly occupied by the Holt Renfrew department store. One retailer in the new spaces has already opened, but others including Geox, Jacob, Browns and H&M have “Spring 2008″ opening dates. The front of the store is covered with a plain white wall, while the street side wall is still unfinished. From the construction, it’s impossible to tell when the store will open.
Here’s an elevation of the Granville Street side of the Pacific Centre complex, showing the location of the Apple store and its neighbors. The sidewalk slopes downward from left to right in this view.
The area of the Apple store is located in the upper-right corner of this photo (thanks Nelson!).
