Reader Brad Wilson sends some pictures of the unique teaser facade covering the upcoming Apple Store in Sydney Australia. A trend that started in Boston:

The Sydney (AUS) Apple store now has a blue covering with an "ocean wave" of light blue iPod Nanos and "Drop in soon. Apple Store, Sydney" written across the building.

I tried to get closer to see inside (they had the curtain drawn letting construction crew in), but was quickly whisked away.  It looks like it still has a ways to go on the inside.  (plaster and cables everywhere)  Maybe by June 9th (hopefully iPhone 3G day).

According to ifoAppleStore (via The Age):

Apple has leased the first three levels of the building at 77 King Street and, according to the development application, each of the levels will have a floor space of about 445 square metres.Over the store's entrance - and behind the "drop in soon' sign - will be a three-metre-high Apple logo.

Two other smaller Apple Stores - one in Sydney's North Shore suburb of Chatswood and the other in Melbourne's Chadstone shopping centre - are also under development and will probably open after the main Sydney store throws open its doors.

That is expected to happen at 6pm on Thursday, June 19.
