Looks like Massachusetts will be getting a sixth Apple Store – this time, right in the heart of Boston. It’s slated to replace the Copy Cop building on Boylston St., which is right across the street from the Hynes Convention Center. Apple is buying the Copy Cop building, will knock it down, and replace it with a glass-covered building (similar to the one in Manhattan).
I remember about a year ago there were discussions about Apple erecting a glass-covered building and some people affiliated with the city (I think it was the Neighborhood Association of the Back Bay) objected to such a ‘modern design’ given Boston’s historical buildings. This time around, it seems like people are more open to the ‘modern design.’
Personally, I think Boston needs some more modern looking buildings and having an Apple Store lead the way would be great.
