Original Story (Sep 9, 2019): Apple‘s Fifth Avenue store has been going through renovations since April 2017, and the flagship New York store has finally been unveiled. The glass exterior showcases an opalescent coating that reflects every color of the rainbow.
The building’s 32-square-foot interior remains under construction and according to MacRumors, Apple is intending to double the tourist attraction to 77,000 square feet. It is speculated that renovations cost up to $2 million USD, with contractors involved with the project having to sign nondisclosure agreements, as per the New York Post. Renovations were expected to be completed in 2018, however, the opening of the new building has been indefinitely delayed since Apple has decided not to disclose a window date for the store’s reopening.
