California Apple Store Could Let the Sun Shine In

Not a spaceship, but still fun to look at, at least for people who like to look at renderings of proposed Apple stores: Here are a couple, showing what appears to be a proposed location on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade, featuring a “transparent glass ceiling.”

As Curbed (via MacRumors) notes, a permit request to Santa Monica’s planning commission doesn’t identify the retailer that wants to build this thing, but it sure looks a whole lot like a showcase Apple store.


Bonus for whatever store’s employees do end up working here: “Secure bicycle parking” in the basement. If you’re into that kind of thing.
