Revised plans for new SF Apple Store keep fountain intact

updated 12:24 pm EDT, Tue August 27, 2013

Fountain moved slightly to accommodate new steps

Apple has presented revised plans for its upcoming Union Square Apple Store to San Francisco city officials, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The plans were submitted Monday, and mayor Ed Lee says he is "happy" that Apple was able to work with city planners to keep a popular fountain by Ruth Asawa near its current location. Apple has also added things like a glass "notch" to a wall along Stockton Street, which would otherwise have been a featureless, 80-foot-long block of steel.

The Chronicle first called attention to Apple's original plans, which were criticized by the paper's design critic. That report eventually escalated into a reaction by the city, including Lee, who said he would re-examine Apple's design. In June city planners asked Apple to make a variety of changes, all of which appear to have been implemented.
