Construction will push out animal adoption groups

A large collection of architectural documents have revealed plans for Apple's Fourth Street store in Berkeley, California. The shop will occupy a building at 1823 Fourth Street, with construction costs valued at roughly $1.7 million. This includes building a partial second level at the rear for backroom operations, and expanding the ground level to accommodate retail space.

Apple will also add an elevator, bathrooms, two stairways, and upgraded air, heating and electricity systems. The ground-level part of the expansion will in fact swallow up an outdoor plaza, which is often used by animal adoption agencies showing pets to the public. In addition to Apple's normal display and training areas, the new retail space should have two kids' tables and a 17-seat Genius Bar.

The exterior will mostly retain the look of the current building, sporting masonry, a glass awning over the entrance and 15-foot tall windows. It's estimated that the Apple Store could open by fall 2011. If Apple's terms are similar to those of 1815 Fourth Street, the company could be leasing the building for 10 years, with three opportunities to extend residency for another five years each time.
