Work advances on Rue HalÚvy Apple Store

updated 10:30 am EDT, Fri May 1, 2009

Rue HalÚvy store progress

Active construction has begun at the site of the Rue HalÚvy Apple Store in Paris, a MacNN source informs. The location is across from the Garnier operahouse, and may be strategically situated in the middle of high tourist traffic with the added benefit of wealthy locals. Like many buildings in the neighborhood, the one containing the Apple Store has historical value.

In contrast to the sibling Louvre Apple Store, the HalÚvy outlet appears to be undergoing the beginnings of serious work, with floors being cleared for new tiling, and holes being dug for new installations. Reports have suggested that Louvre progress is being slowed by the need for special preservation efforts; when completed, nevertheless, the HalÚvy store should benefit from the presence of vintage windows and skylights, as well as stylish columns and railings. No opening date has been confirmed.

    Great Location

    Cool.
    I went to the Garnier Opera the last time I was in Paris. (Salvatore Sciarrino's: Da gelo a gelo. INTENSE!)
    I even use a photo of the top of the fašade as a desktop picture.

    what?

    Apple had no problem dealing with the current architecture here, but couldn't figure out how to do the same in Georgetown?
