    Over in Munich, Germany, Apple appears to have got the ball rolling on the nation's first official Apple retail store -- a massive four-story flagship shop due to open sometime during the second half of 2008.



    As apparent from the photos below, contractors have completely razed the old structure at 1 Rosenstrasse, once home to Sport Schuster sporting goods. By this time next year, Apple hopes to fill the gap with a four-story retail outlet, adorned in an all-glass facade.



    The store, which will reportedly begin operating sometime "in the second half of 2008," is said to be just one of approximately five Apple retail locations planned for Germany.



    Other locations are expected in Berlin and Frankfurt.



    A wireframe rendering of the Munich store was previously published, revealing a suspended white Apple logo that will greet patrons as they enter.

    Okay, seriously? This is interesting and all, but you have *way* too many photos in that article, all showing the same thing. Three tops would have sufficed.

    Amen. The last 75 pictures didn't really contribute any real new angles to the subject matter, he, he, he.



    I should be a comedian !

    That flashy advertisement looks like a modern corporate parasite in the middle of those Gothic and Baroque buildings. Hopefully the store doesn't end up looking like that.

    Oops sorry didn't read that...I was so distressed by the length of time it took to get to the bottom of the article...

    Take a page from Apple's book (the one that says more is not necessarily better).

    I dunno, I see some older buildings, but the immediate environs look to be mostly concrete 'n steel.



    Judging by what's next door and across the street, an Apple store would look positively festive.

    Is this the Germany store or the Jamacia store?!



    You'd think they'd post some of their own citizens in the ads.

    I've never been to Munich. I don't know why Apple went there.
