Construction Begins On Third Sydney Region Store

January 5, 2012

Last June tipsters pointed to a future Apple store in Sydney (Australia), and now a black construction barricade on the third level of the Broadway Shopping Centre confirms the information. Passersby say that the company’s traditional black-painted plywood now covers units 303 to 307, a space totaling nearly 6,000 square-feet. The mall is adjacent to a technical college with 10,000 students. It is also about 1½ miles from the existing George Street Apple store, and three miles from the Bondi Junction store. Based on construction schedules, this store could open this fall.

This will actually be Sydney’s 7th store, not 3rd. In reference to Sydney as the CBD or “City”, it is actually the 2nd store. Just to clarify :D

You are also forgetting The University of Sydney, Australia’s oldest university, with over 32,000 undergraduates and more than 15,000 graduate students… and many many Mac fans amongst them. The technical college you mention is in fact University of Technology Sydney , a fully accredited university as well as a tech. college. Current enrolment there is over 20,000 undergraduates and over 9,000 post-graduates.

The Broadway shopping centre is known to have been courting Apple for a store since before the opening of the George Street flagship store.

I think what the article refers to as “Technical College” as actually TAFE? which has over 10,000 students, plus University of Sydney and University of Technology, Sydney. So really there is a student population of over 60,000 students
