    There’s one thing sure about Apple – its growth. The company keeps on expanding on all fields – business, products and services. While the consumers are mainly concerned with the products and services that Cupertino offers, Apple is silently building more great things for the future. One of Apple’s most important plans is the expansion of Apple Store across the whole world and even in seemingly saturated markets such as the United States.

    According to the Re/Code publication, the city of San Francisco has given Apple the final approval for the construction of its new flagship retail store in the city’s Union Square. Apple spokeswoman Amy Bessette told Re/code the following:

    The new store will be designed by Foster + Partners, the same UK-based architecture firm that is responsible for the design of the company’s new spaceship-like headquarters. The new flagship San Francisco store will replace Apple’s current one at Stockton Street. It will be 45 percent larger than the old store at around 24,819 square feet and. The new location will require about 400 employees to run, which means it will generate 50 new jobs, as there were 350 workers in the previous location.

    The new store will be located on the corner of Post and Stockton, directly across from Union Square and according to some architectural renderings, it seems that its design will carry Apple Stores’ “open†feel mark. If you live in San Francisco, maybe you can stop by the place once construction works get started and let us know your impressions.
