Slicing Up Apple's Georgetown Designs
Is Apple just too cool for Georgetown?
We might find out Thursday morning, when the architects on the Old Georgetown Board of the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts meets to discuss a number of potential projects -- including a proposed Apple store at 1229 Wisconsin Ave. in Northwest. (Read Paul Schwarzman's article for the full story.)
As Marc Fisher mentioned in January, the back-and-forth between Apple -- which currently owns the old FCUK property -- the Old Georgetown Board and Georgetown's Advisory Neighborhood Commission is ongoing.
So how far is Apple willing to go to satisfy Washington's historic preservationalists? Take a look at their designs and decide for yourself.
Here's the first, from Sept. 2007.
Questions -- primarily about the large glass panel at street level -- were raised about that one; Apple suggested another in June 2008.
Asked for a third, it submitted this one in December.
The Apple logo on that one was adjudged to be too big. In January, Apple tried a fourth time. Here's the one to be discussed on Thursday.
