Details emerge on new Berlin, San Francisco Apple Stores

updated 11:36 am EST, Tue January 29, 2013

Fourth SF outlet pegged for Castro Street

New information has emerged on anticipated Apple Stores in Berlin and San Francisco. Bloomberg sources indicate that as expected, Apple is planning to open up its first Berlin location in a former movie theater at Kurfürstendamm 26. Kurfürstendamm is one of the main shopping streets in Berlin, and the theater in question is across from a Hard Rock Cafe. The location was originally tipped over a year ago, and job listings began appearing in March. MacNN can confirm that Apple has already started hiring people for the store.

Apple is meanwhile said to be preparing its fourth San Francisco store. A SocketSite source says that Apple is considering a former Diesel (and previously Bank of America) building at 400 Castro Street (pictured), on the corner of Market. The rent for the site is said to have jumped 50 percent recently, forcing Diesel out. The Bay Area is already heavily saturated in Apple Stores; there are at least a dozen locations in the vicinity, owing in part to the Apple headquarters being located in Cupertino.
