Council are planning to fix the cobbles/pavements behind the shop so the area can be used as a walk through from the Tram stop & when the new shopping centre opens (St James Quarter). Pretty dingy right now, two great pubs there though... lucky staff!

Here is a recent photo now the scaffolding is largely down.
A photo for comparison taken before the works started. I think it's a shame they haven't cleaned the original stonework.

Plain white hoarding now up around the store location. I expect it will be painted black or with an interesting design in the near future. Only extends so far so you can see where the next door Barclays branch is going to be and get a sense of the size of the store. I didn't think to get a picture but will do so next time I'm passing.

The situation at the end of February. Notice how the entire roof and tower have been lifted to provide another two hotel floors.

A person working at John Lewis mentioned to somebody at my work that a new Apple store would be opening up in Edinburgh in the next two months. She had been in John Lewis because of problems with her iPad but she didn't want it getting sent away and couldn't get through to Glasgow. No idea how accurate this information is but it would fit with how far the work is progressing.

That is quite obviously pure speculation!

Won't be open in May.

August would be a realistic aim.
October would be the safe money.

By End of July. It will be open before the Festival.

It is likely the person being mentioned in John Lewis is the Apple rep..

Took a pic the other day, similar to the other above. The reason for the slightly larger white boards is due to the hotel on the opposite side of the road, they would have been able to see. Someone was actually sent to check it out from the top room in said hotel to make sure it was suitably covered!!

Wish they had cleaned the older section of the building and it will be interesting to see how Apple Photograph the building to 1. mask that difference in colour and 2. to exclude the horrific state of the cobbles and path to the side of the building (West Register Street). The hotel that occupies the upper part opens in 15 days.



This link to the hotel shows what the ground floor unit Apple are to occupy is likely to look like.. http://www.motel-one.com/en/hotels/e...nburgh-princes

Inside knowledge, or guess?

Apparently, Apple and Edinburgh council haven't seen eye to eye on a lot of things.

Meanwhile, Aberdeen has had an Apple store for years, and Glasgow actually has two

Local news Story, more 'doubling down' signs



It's like they don't care!

I do like that Apple does make an effort to keep things a surprise.

No doubt the new occupants (Motel One, Barclays Bank and Apple would have liked to clean the older surfaces, but we're talking about Edinburgh Council here - someone, somewhere will have written a guideline about removing top surface skin on old stone - and there's nothing Edinburgh Planning Department likes more than obscure, outdated, obstinate attitudes written into a pointless guideline!
