Little progress made on Louvre Apple Store?

Slow work on Louvre store

Progress is so far slow or non-existent on Apple's Parisian retail store near the Louvre, photos supplied by a MacNN source suggest. The photos, taken on April 24th, show an essentially empty space, without any evidence of the forthcoming occupation by Apple. The site also appears to lack any sign of active construction, though surfaces are clean and possibly ready for tiles and paneling.

Though the store has been acknowledged by Apple since June of last year, little news has emerged on its evolution, and no firm date has been set for its opening. It has in fact been rumored that the first Parisian Apple Store to open will not be the Louvre location, but one near the Garnier operahouse. Developments at the Louvre site may be hampered by size and the need to preserve historic architecture.

    historic architecture?

    "the need to preserve historic architecture"? That can't be the reason. This (underground) mall was constructed about 20 years ago. The fact that the space is now finally empty is already progress.

    oh well

    slow construction is a French specialty, something like slow food. Slow fruit in this case.

    or..

    it could just be due to the fact Apple has changed its mind. Or they've put their resources elsewhere. Or the construction crew worked really hard for 2 weeks getting the space clean, and were then granted the required 6 weeks vacation time to recover from that exercise.
