Apple's 5th Avenue Glass Cube Receiving A $7 Million Makeover

Everyone visiting NYC must see the Statue of Liberty, Ground Zero, and the Apple cube. It’s a rule. But that iconic glass entryway is currently closed to visitors as the cube and surrounding plaza receives some $6.6 million in updates. Guess you’re going to have to delay your New York City trip.

Engineers and workers will first completely remove the glass fixtures and the “make upgrades” to the surrounding cement plaza only then to reinstall the glass as it was. There’s no indication to whether the panels are being replaced or the old ones will go back up. The whole project is said to wrap up in November. [ifoAppleStore via TUAW]
