Last week, Inga Saffron profiled the award-winning Pennsylvania architect Peter Bohlin.
Bohlin is the architect of the famous Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. He’s also designed a second store for Apple in New York as well as Apple Stores in London and Japan.
When Apple finally decided to open a store in Philadelphia, they once again turned to Bohlin for the design.
And Inga Saffron reports that the Bohlin-designed Center City Apple Store is scheduled to open this summer in July.
The store is to be located in the heart of Rittenhouse Row shopping at 1609 Walnut Street, in a former bank, next to American Apparel.
Great to see Apple finally coming to Center City.
