Revised Plans for Flagship Apple Store in Brisbane, Australia Surface

A revised construction plan for Apple's flagship retail store in Brisbane, Australia has surfaced nearly two years after the store was originally announced to be built, reports ifoAppleStore (via AppleInsider). Plans for the Australian store were thought to have been abandoned after a bankruptcy filing from a major contractor in 2012 as well as reported problems with the modification of the historic building which the store is to be built in.

The store will be located in the MacArthur Chambers building, a 10-story high-rise that was originally constructed in 1934. Apple plans to make few structural changes to the interior, with the plans showing minor changes to a mezzanine wall, some windows, and a stairway.

According to the revised landscape plan, Apple is planning to remove a number of structures on the sidewalk in front of the store, like a large pedestrian bench, as well as relocate a tree to create symmetry with the store's front entrance.
The updated filing for the store did not indicate a timeframe for when it would open; however rumors suggest that the location could open in October of this year at the earliest.

I've never heard about this, but knowing Apple I would not be surprised.


Apparently the Builder not Apple

Yes it will be unfortunately. I have been past there occasionally.

Hope we can get a date on the store opening soon. I'm sure those of us who can be there for it, want to be there.


If the Build is not at practical completion by 30 November, it will Xmas shopping season.

The Retailers would like the mess and construction gone by then or it will be after the school holidays, in February, which is going to be major wet month this year.

If you are going for photos, move in, quick, get them and get out before anyone is the wiser.

Be aware there is one person at least on the site that will respond, perhaps unpleasantly.

Certainly do not go out of your way to annoy.
