Apple has presented a 3D model of its new retail store at San Francisco’s Union Square to the Historical Preservation Commission of San Francisco.

Apple had to create new building plans because San Francisco officials realised they would need to remove a famous, historical fountain to build the new store.

According to the new plans, the fountain will be replaced behind the store.

“Commission reviews and approves applications for Certificates of Appropriateness for alterations, site improvements and new construction affecting San Francisco’s designated landmarks, buildings and sites within historic districts,” a city spokesman said.

The new store will have a glass front and the Apple logo will be put on the sidewall instead of in front of the store. It will also be larger then the old store at Stockton and Ellis.

Having a larger store, Apple believes it will need to recruit more employees, as it will attract more customers. Around 350 employees are working at the current store.
