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).
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.
