Apple Store Boston
Despite submitting revised designs for a forthcoming signature Boston retail store yesterday, the Back Bay Architectural Commission has denied last night's proposal, but given a conditional green light to demolish the existing structure, according to The Boston Globe: "Apple is moving in the right direction with a revised building design for its first Boston store, the Back Bay Architectural Commission told the company at a hearing last night. Giving Apple a conditional blessing, the group approved the demolition of the existing building at 815 Boylston St. as long as the computer maker presents an appropriate building design. But the commission, while complimenting the design changes, denied for now last night's proposal, an expected move for a project of this scope, according to commission chairman Anthony Casendino." The group formed a subcommittee to work with Apple to tweak these designs and come up with additional proposals, according to the report.
