Posted on one of the glass panes is a message teasing the store's upcoming reopening:
Unfortunately, it sounds as though the 32-foot iridescent cube won't stay that way for much longer. The look is said to be temporary, which means it'll go back to looking like a normal glass cube sometime in the near future.
When the Fifth Avenue store was erected in 2006, it became a landmark in New York City. But it was torn down in 2017 in order to make way for renovations. The new location will reportedly be 77,000 square feet, giving visitors plenty of space to check out Apple's lineup of devices.
With Apple set to introduce a new iPhone at its September 10 event, rumor has it the Fifth Avenue store will reopen its doors to coincident with the device's launch. Until then, we can admire the mesmerizing iridescence of one of the most iconic stores in the world.
