There is a new flagship Apple Store under construction in downtown Chicago, and on Thursday, workers added a giant Apple logo on the roof, making the building look like a MacBook.

A report from DNA Info Chicago (which we saw via The Verge) also mentioned that the logo was removed a few hours later, but will come back when the building is completed.

The design of the finalised Store will feature an all-glass construction, as well as a thin, carbon fibre look that will again resemble a MacBook.

The Chicago Tribune first reported on the new Apple Store‘s design back in 2015, when the Cupertino firm still had no plans to add its signature logo on the top of the building.

This still from DNA Info Chicago’s video shows workers moving the Apple logo into place:

The paper also reported the inclusion of the Apple logo in an article from almost three months ago, but actual images hadn’t emerged until now.

Foster + Partners, the London design studio working on the project, told the Tribune that the Store will eventually have “many of the new elements introduced at the San Francisco Apple Store that opened last year,” such as “the outdoor plaza, a gathering place centered around a video wall Apple calls ‘The Forum’.”
