Chicago’s new Michigan Avenue Apple Store will open along the Chicago River on Oct. 20. The 20,000 square-foot glass building is located at 401 N. Michigan Avenue, and will replace the current downtown Chicago location at 679 N. Michigan Avenue.

A metallic roof which resembles Apple’s iconic Macbook computer tops the new flagship store. A grand staircase leads down to the riverfront and an outdoor gathering space.
