Sydney Façade Covering Is Removed

June 15, 2008

Workers began removing the Bondi blue plastic covering over the glass façade of the Sydney (Australia) retail store late Sunday night, four days before the store’s grand opening. Using a combination of scissor lifts and boswain chairs, the workers slowly pulled the material off the glass to reveal a tall, three store concrete building structure, stainless steel interior trim, and a giant back-lit Apple logo suspended in the center of the huge glass window. The interior of the store itself is still a secret–photos posted on the MacTalk Australia forum show black plastic hangs from the ceiling blocking any view inside. The store is just the third three-level store that Apple has opened, and is expected to have an interior glass staircase.
