Apple To Open Its First Ever Floating Store in Singapore
As if Apple stores weren’t slick enough already, they’re upping their game once again. The tech giant will open a new retail store like never before.
The new Apple store is a pricey-looking, ultra-modern orb that floats on water in front of the iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore, adding to the already impressive skyline of the city.
While the store is not open to the public yet, we’ve seen plenty of photos of the exterior. In preparation for the opening, Apple has a webpage devoted to the unveiling, which they’ve described as “a place we’ve made for you to capture your ideas and passions. It will be a space for you to explore, connect and create something new.”
According to reports from 9to5Mac, the store features “an elevated boardwalk and underwater passage connecting the pavilion to the shore and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.” Sounds pretty impressive, right?
As night falls, the sleek orb glows in a multitude of colours, ensuring that passers-by can not miss it. With Singapore’s iconic skyline lit in all its glory as a backdrop, it’s most definitely a fixture best viewed in the dark.
The Apple Marina Bay Sands store is Apple’s third store to open in the city, with the other two located at Jewel Changi Airport and along the shopping hub that is Orchard Road. While there is no confirmed opening date for the floating store, Apple says it will be opening “soon.”
