San Francisco Apple Store boasts sliding glass doors



According to SocketSite, the new Apple Store in San Francisco will boast two gigantic glass sliding doors. They will be over 44 feet tall and 23 feet wide.

Another set of renderings of the redesigned Post Street façade for Apple's proposed flagship store on Union Square which now features two full-height sliding glass doors, each measuring 23 feet wide and 44.5 feet tall, allowing the store to be opened to the street: Note the regular sized all-glass doors in the non-sliding bays which would act as the primary access points for the store when the full-height doors are closed.

The proposed retail store has already been redesigned for several times. At first, Apple was planning to destroy a historic fountain. However, due to growing complaints the designers developed a project of the fountain relocation. Another addition is an 8-foot wide glass window located on the side wall.

You can find the render below.
