A set of new renderings of the proposed Union Square Apple retail location was presented to the San Francisco Planning Department this week that show an updated design for the store’s entrance. The new renders depict the store with massive 23-foot wide sliding glass doors (which measure nearly 45 feet tall each) that a large section of the storefront to open to the street.
Regular-sized doors on either side of the larger ones will allow customers to come and go if the main doors are closed.
The two-floor Union Square store is set to replace the existing Stockton Street location in San Fransisco. Apple and city authorities have been working together since the middle of last year to perfect the plans. According to Apple, the new store will add an additional 50 employees to the roster of around 300 currently working at the Stockton Street store.
Apple has not yet announced an opening date for the store.
