Blueprints and architectural drawings filed with city officials in Brisbane, Australia, shows that Apple is planning to move forward with construction of a retail outlet in the historic MacArthur Chambersbuilding.
Construction details and revisions filed last week can be taken as confirmation that Apple has not abandoned the Brisbane site, the development application of which was first disclosed in 2011, reports ifoAppleStore.
Apple was thought to have got rid of the store after the project was delayed by a bankruptcy filing from its major contractor in 2012 and reported issues with modernizing the guts of a historic building. The MacArhur Chambers building was built in the 1930s and was used by U.S. General Douglas MacArthur in World War II as the allied forces’ South West Pacific Area headquarters. According to the reviewed landscape plan, Apple is planning to remove a few structures on the sidewalk in front of the store to create symmetry with the store’s front entrance.
The new filing doesn’t indicate an official opening date, it is rumored that the Brisbane Apple Store could be open for business in early October.Patrick Mifsud is
