They have a LONG way to go, it's gutted, and that's about it. The outside is looking nice and fresh, but wow, they've got some work to do still haha

Cant wait. We so need an apple store wish it was open before the IPad launch then i could line up.

you know, with the entire back open and exposed like that, you've got to wonder if they're building an epic glass extension on the back, with .... the 'no roof' look that they've been doing lately.... good time to be getting in to the window cleaning business

I walked past Friday (work not far from there).

The outside is all painted (federation type white & grey/green - note I'm colour blind) and the upstairs looks clean and almost finished. Downstairs was open most of last week, I think they're putting in air con and the such like at the moment (the ceiling is all opened up).

Ask the people of Brisbane. I believe that theirs was up for 9 months.

The store is nowhere near ready - just before this went up you could still see all the way though the place on the lower floors as it's been gutted.

Depends how you mean flagship... It's a standalone store, not a store in a mall. It appears to be two floors though it may only have 1 floor for public access.

Well out the back there are a few lane ways, secret ones; as well as a few boutiques (to come) and very nice cafe's and shops. Something secretive in Perth which makes it exciting and pretty cool. Plus there is a Lounge/Bar called Wolfe Lane..

Exactly :D

I have HD video of one of the pages as it was being blown in the wind, but there's really not much more to see there.
It was on a Saturday, and you can see in one of the photos a security camera to the right of the shot (above the fence). This was the only thing stopping me jumping the fence, going closer and at least having a nice look :)
But yes, literally had a look at the front of the store, saw the arcade to the left, went down the arcade, looked at the back of the store and was like "BAM. Floor Plans!" followed by some teenage ZOMGing... But yes, very excited :D

MattJelonek

adamd

adamd. Nice work!

Thanks :D

I went there with a friend working out what's going to happen with the whole camping out scenario... considering we're getting closer to winter, we might need to book one of the rooms in the hotel next door, at least to just dump our tech gear while we rough it out-outside, or bail to during the night if the weather is crap.

Just out of interest, who is thinking about camping?

perthgazer
22nd April 2010, 02:10 AM
a friend and I will be getting a room next door and getting up early in the morning. i doubt there would be too many campers?

I won't be camping but I will be covering the opening (photographic wise) so I shall already be in the store before YOU!

If you can sneak me in, I'll carry your camera gear. :D

EDIT: Come to think of it, anyone up for a pre-store meet? We can bitch about it and also discuss our plans for camping/taking photos of people camping from inside the store... ?
I'm thinking Sunday in a coffee shop would go down well again. That was quite a nice event. I'll start a thread about it to attract more attention too :D

I joined Oct 2008 (after buying my G5 Powermac)

I am going to have to start chasing this one up through work i think, either that or Camp out (which i was planning on doing anyway)

Yes i switched to the Iphone, there are a few little bits i miss from the crackberry, but i certainly wouldnt go back.
have you figured out the internet tethering yet ? its a piece of cake, and i have been using it heaps just recently

GlossyMac
11th May 2010, 09:40 PM
Not much has changed. The back is still not finished, the little hole that was partially closed, has been opened again. When looking through the hole you see green plastic sheets so the inside of the store is not visible. Whenever I've looked into the hole there have always been people working on the side of the store (in front of the plastic) on the wall. It looks to me like they're wiring up the store.
@Topgearguy The next iPhone launch there.. Well hopefully, but it is moving very slowly.
How long can Apple have the boarding up for? How many months are left?

iPhone 3G was a simultaneous day and date release here and in the US, and there was only a week delay with the 3GS. I imagine since it's a mature product it's not like the iPad which required a lot of lead time for stock.

opilot87
7th June 2010, 07:11 PM
Yeh, I wouldn't expect it to be 1 month later. If it doesn't launch simultaneously with the US, I think Aus as usual will be one of the first international countries and we should get it a week or probably 2 weeks max after. But I guess its less than 12 hours till we find out!

yeaaah :D i'm excited. i'm staying up tonight to find out. got school tommorrow though. hahaha. :)

One time I stayed up for an Apple keynote, the one that was most memorable, was when the Air was released. The next day we had a family gettogether and I was absolutely smashed from energy.
As soon as it finishes, get to sleep. Take sleeping pills and shit. Seriously, it's not fun when it gets to 3pm the day after.

For this event, I'm going to get the day before, the day of and the day after off work :)

Hi Guys,

Just happened to be passing by the Apple Store tonight. Stopped, walked up and took some snaps. These are from about 2:40am. So close to being finished, there were Apple techs sorting out the big screens behind the Genius Bar, which is at the back of the store.

One of the guys came out and told me that because Apple paid to have the pavement re-done it was no longer public property that I was standing on. Clearly not true.

Wow they were working on it at 2:40am, crazy stuff. I wonder why, surely they don't work on it 24 hours. Judging by those pics and the times they are working on it, looks like the store will be opening quite soon, probably before the end of the month!

I believe that you have to camp out, overnight, outside the unfinished store, and if one of the genius workmen in a blue tee-shirt gives you the nod, then you may proceed down the dark alleyway to a small table where you may preregister your details to receive the email. Some people are already reporting that the small table is already overloaded, and that their applications are never completed. Be warned, however, that some people in Canada, who preregistered there, have since received notification indicating that their email may be delayed by up to a month due to a world shortage of electrons, while others who only preregistered yesterday have received notification indicating that their email is scheduled to be sent as soon as tomorrow! If you know anyone in, or travelling to, the UK I suggest that you ask them to queue up and preregister for the email over there, as their emails will arrive this month and are unlocked!

Was in town today and went and had another look. Nothing there warranting any new photos. The front is basically open now, except for the tarp which is only blocking about half of the front. The glass is still all covered up. The stainless steel canopy is going on right now and the glowing Apple logo is probably going on the large glass panel above the double doors.

One of the guys came along and told me that they can't give away any "secrets", after which I happily pointed out the fact that the plans for the entire site were sitting on the pavement in a large cardboard box. From the plans there appears to be a separate "experts" counter. The plans were very detailed, right down to printer cable wiring, typical Apple.

The workman I spoke with said that he thought the opening was on Saturday.

can any one confirm that half of the building (the entire rear half) is a massive glass cube? (walls/roof, etc)? It was awfully vacant/demolished last time I was out the back a few months ago.

They're still in business. Now in Northbridge I think.

Actually they're at 37 Barrack St opposite end of the Hay st Mall.

Can't wait for the store to open :D

Last time I went past, on Thursday, it didn't look like the wall was on the back.. :\

I can confirm that Apple have now taken possession, should be open next weekend.

Just been past at lunch... the rear of the building is still open. If they are doing a full fit out without it being water tight it's extremely odd project management.

I'll upload the pictures shortly... if I don't get hassled at work.

ok, so just been in city :D
Firstly, went round the back and it is still a mess - the top floor doesn't even have a back wall yet! Very weird... The ceiling on the top floor is not apple-like so i think it is single-level retail only.
Didnt get a photo cause there was a massive security guy there and i dint want to take out my camera :P

Then went round the front:

Couldnt get a photo face-on - why? Well see that big truck... next thing it moved across to the other side of the road (directly adjacent to the store) and started unloading pallets and pallets of boxes. Then a swarm of guys (very apple-like employees :P) appear with trolleys and whisk them away round the back :O got a quick look at the boxes - the few i saw were marked iPod :D

I just popped down there at about 4:30. I wanted to see what the back looked like and you're right, it is a mess. The "Massive Security Guard" was a lovely guy who I had a chat with for 10 minutes. Pictures follow.

The reason it's still a mess out the back is because there is no where else to store rubbish on the site. They will be clearing this up and the back wall will go up last. The upper floor is offices for Apple.

oh lol, well the guy that was there about 1pm was a massive dark guy wearing dark sunnies :P
the state the back of the store was in really surprised me, considering how complete inside (from pics seen on here) and the front is... suppose it makes sense to use the upper level for offices. im still pretty disappointed we get the older fit-out (supposedly the glass roof/trees ala bondi is the new store fitout :( )

mhossen
21st June 2010, 09:57 PM
Haha, that's the same guy. Scared me at first too. I don't think it's an older fit-out, I think they tailor it to suit the location. The Bondi store doesn't have a glass roof. In fact, it looks very similar to the Perth store from what I've seen. They're all designed by the same architecture company in Sydney.

Bondi does have a glass roof at the rear of the store above the trees.

Ohh, I see what you mean. I thought you meant like the completely glass store in New York. It's really not possible for the Perth store to have that as it's a two storey building. We'll have to wait and see though, they might just pull something out of the hat when they finish off the back of the building.

From the photo's, looking at the way they've got the steel, slab edge + tilt-panels finished out back, it may be finished in glass; with a quick paint of the primed steel. Having said that, it looks like they'll require some kind of fire rating on the RHS corner next to the boundary.

Probably more relevant in glass if they're making something of the back open space; Cafe etc.

No I think its definitely not going to be anything. The ground floor level has a solid concrete back wall already, and from mhossen's previous photo the interior (and more specifically the back wall) is definitely finished - there is nothing still to come. :(

I'm inclined to agree. I doubt there will be anything at the back, it seems impossible. It would be nice though.

The ceiling on the top floor is not apple-like so i think it is single-level retail only.

Must admit, I will be slightly disappointed if theres retail on one level only.
