YouTuber “patjem2” has posted video of Apple Store Fifth Avenue’s new glass cube which reduced the number of individual glass panes from 90 to just 15.
Arnold Kim reports for MacRumors, “In addition to the new cube, Apple has also upgraded the plaza, refreshing or installing new water drains and pavers while removing the small bollards that had previously surrounded the cube.”
The glass cube has been enclosed in a giant box while it underwent reconstruction since mid-summer.
MacDailyNews Take: Only one company in the world would care enough to spend the time and money to reduce those glass panes. Only Apple. May they keep that Jobsian mindset forever!
