Apple’s new store in Hong Kong’s Hysan Place nears completion
A third Apple store is about to open in Hong Kong! The giant glass front to the store at Hysan Place remains covered in a tarp as construction continues. The new mall opened in August with the exception of one major tenant: Apple.
From inside the mall, it can be seen that the Apple Store will occupy at least two floors, AppleInsider reader Philip shared on Friday. But the large storefront suggests the retail space could also occupy at third floor that may not have an entrance to the inside of the mall.
The first Hong Kong Apple Store just opened one year ago in the city’s International Financial Center Mall. That store features Apple’s iconic glass spiral staircase, as well as a view of Victoria Harbour, and was estimated to cost $20 million in construction.
The new location at Hysan Place will actually be the third Apple Store to open in Hong Kong to date. Just last week, the company also opened its doors on a new location at Kowloon’s Festival Walk.
In addition to the two existing stores in Hong Kong, Apple also has five locations in mainland China.
