First look at Apple's proposed Boston store
Last week, the Back Bay Architectural Commission approved Apple's preliminary design for a store near the Prudential Center.
While details are still being tweaked, Apple has generally been proposing to construct a three-story building with a green roof and a front made largely of glass after demolishing the building at 815 Boylston St. The store would be Apple's first in Boston. There are Apple stores at malls in Chestnut Hill and Cambridge and at four other Massachusetts sites.
The store proposal still awaits approvals from other city agencies and from the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino said he's enthusiastic about the planned store. "It's great for the city," he said.
