"We are thrilled that the city of San Francisco has given its final approval to begin work on our new store and public plaza, which will make a wonderful addition to Union Square and create hundreds of local jobs," said Apple spokeswoman Amy Bessette when talking to Re/code. She continued: "Our Stockton Street store has been incredibly popular, welcoming over 13 million customers since it opened nine years ago, and we look forward to making a new home on Union Square."

 

We should expect the new flagship Apple Store to feature 44-foot tall sliding glass panels at its entry, with an Apple rep calling the new location "more iconic" than its well-known Fifth Avenue store in New York City.
