Apple’s newest NYC retail store’s unique roof revealed via remote-controlled helicopter flyover

“The future Broadway (NYC) retail now under construction at the angled intersection with 67th Street will feature unique architectural designs that will put it in competition for the most spectacular store in the chain. The steel-framed building has risen from the near-total demolition of a former two-level Victoria’s Secret store, with but a single wall retained because of city permit requirements,” ifoAppleStore reports.

“Topping of the building will be its most-viewed feature: a slightly-arched glass roof supported by steel arches, all reminiscent of the historic St. Pancras train station in London (UK). The roof will span the rear three-quarters of the retail space, providing light and an airy atmosphere to the interior space. The store was originally reported to open by Thanksgiving, but instead will likely open by Christmas,” ifoAppleStore reports.

Check out aerial photos of the roof here.

  1. Every single bit of apple is represented by the most advanced innovation. How is microsoft planning to compete with apple putting their stores close to apple’s stores?
    Whit windows 7 party?
    I believe some one inside Microsoft is playing tricks on them, maybe the “sales guy”. I really think that you must be nuts to try to compete against apple with a crappy designed computers, bad software, ignorant people (has anybody call Microsoft support line?), bad phones.

  2. @Troy … Windows 7 Lemon Party! Weeee!

    Cool pictures. I live in the neighborhood and have been watching progress and saw it right after they put up the roof structure (about a month ago). It seems to be some kind of semi-arch, but full-glass? Wow! Nice.

  3. I don’t see why they couldn’t have integrated the Victoria’s Secret store into the Apple Store. Have those hot models in bra and panties selling all of those awesome goodies!

    I mean the Macs, of course. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”tongue rolleye” style=”border:0;” />
