The demolition of the existing building at 300 Post Street has finally begun. For those who may need a reminder of the saga, Apple took over the former Levi's flagship store location and released lofty architectural plans that resulted in a few delays. But all appears back on track as AppleInsider reports that construction workers are breaking down the building's interior and preparing the Ruth Asawa fountain for relocation. As exciting as it is to see movement on the project, one source tells the aforementioned publication that the store's opening is at least a year and a half away. Until then, the smaller Apple store on Stockton Street must suffice.
