Construction on the future Upper West Side (NYC) retail store has been completed and the staff is in training for grand opening day, when the building’s amazing architecture will be fully revealed. Tipsters say the store could open on November 20th, coinciding with Apple’s preference for a 6 p.m. Friday opening for its high-profile stores. Photos of the store show an amazing and distinctive curved glass roof, set into a nearly-triangular corner at 67th Street and Broadway. The wide sidewalk in front of the store has been completely redone to provide an audience-sized space in front of the curtain of glass. The storefront and sidewalk is still blocked off, and is being constantly patrolled by security guards. Photos after the break.
Thanks to Adam and Yosef for these photos.
This view shows what the store looks like from the intersection, with a huge stone wall to the left, and what will be an impressive glass façade to the right.
This amazing view by Adam shows how the façade extends outward from the U-shaped stone side walls, the upward curve of the glass roof and the angle of the glass at the left street intersection.
