After all, Philadelphia is the largest media market without an Apple Store, unless, of course you count the city’s suburban Apple outlets.
Well, the architecture gods may have exacted revenge on the computer company, Philebrity.com reports.
The rumored site of Apple’s Philadelphia location has suffered some sort of structural damage. Overnight, a piece of marble installation crumbled off the building and into the street, though no one was hurt, according to Philly.com.
All has been quiet on the Philly Apple Store front, though the company continues to expand its number of retail locations nationwide. The company recently announced that it will be opening up a fourth store in the second best city on the East coast, ahem, New York.
According to public records, the space at 1619 Walnut is owned by “Walnut Street Retail Investments.”
Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the firm responsible for designing some of the company’s New York locations, declined to comment about the possibility of a Philadelphia location when Technically Philly contacted their Philadelphia office late last week.
As part of the firm’s agreement with Apple,ï¿½it is prohibited from discussing any details of future locations and would not even confirm that Apple was considering Philadelphia.
