Apple moving flagship SF store, doubling size

updated 11:48 am EDT, Thu May 16, 2013

New store will feature more staff, feature latest design

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that Apple will be eventually closing its One Stockton Street store -- which has been a flagship venue among the San Francisco stores -- and moving it about three blocks away, adjacent to Union Square. The new store will feature an updated design with a more glass-centric design, somewhat reminiscent of the Upper West Side store in New York City. It will also be about 45 percent larger than the current location and increase its staff from 350 to 400.

City officials, including Supervisor David Chiu, have expressed hope that the forthcoming store will "turbo-charge" the high-street environment of the Union Square area. No timeline for the construction and move have yet been announced. The new location will sit at the intersection of Stockton and Post streets, taking over from a former Levi's location.

The city is planning an eventual expansion of the Central Subway line that should bring a new station directly into Union Square, close to the new store. The current Stockton street location is directly served by a subway station for both the BART rail and Muni Metro line. The current store was originally opened in 2004.

    I'm not sure when "45 percent larger" became a "doubling in size."

    Maybe that's the new math?
