“Apple’s $6.6 million renovation started back in June and involved replacing the cube’s 90 glass panels with a much simpler 15 glass panel design,” Arnold Kim reports for MacRumors.
A MacRumors reader “reports that today they’ve torn away much of the white covering along the bottom of the store. This area remains hidden from the street level view due to the surrounding construction barriers,” Kim reports. “Workers have been power-washing the ground, presumably in preparation for the grand unveiling.”
