Sydney outlet city's third
Construction efforts are due or underway on two Apple retail expansions, according to ifoAppleStore. The first is a previously rumored new location in Sydney, Australia, on the third floor of the Broadway Shopping Centre. A black facade (pictured above and below) is now covering units 303 to 307, indicating that the finished shop will measure nearly 6,000 square feet.
The outlet will be one of many belonging to Apple in the Sydney area. It is in fact roughly 1.5 miles from the George Street store, and 3 miles from the Bondi Junction location. Broadway Shopping Centre, though, is immediately next to a technical college with over 10,000 students.
In Orlando, Florida meanwhile, sources claim that an existing Apple Store in the Florida Mall will soon nearly triple in size. Adjacent Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn stores are expected to vacate in the near future, after which Apple will grow into at least a portion of the empty space. Mall lease plans reportedly hint that the upgraded Apple Store will span 8,640 square feet, making it especially large for a mall-based location.
