Apple Starts Building Mysterious Structure Outside Event Building
Ryan Simmons / 5 years ago
9to5Mac has been sent photos of a mysterious new structure being built outside the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts – the location of Apple’s event a week from now.
The images show a white tent-like structure that has been constructed as an extension to one of the buildings at the venue. While we don’t yet exactly know what the building will be for, our best guess is that it will be a demo area for the Apple Watch and perhaps any new products that are to be announced.
This guess, while it seems perfectly reasonable, is not without question. Apple built a similar, but substantially larger building at the Flint Center, in Cupertino for their original watch event, which has led to the suggestion that this is the same thing. But, it’s worth keeping in mind that the Flint Center did not have the space required for such an area in the first place, necessitating that Apple build it themselves. The Yerba Buena Center does have this space already though – Apple has held many events at the venue across many years, and has always had a substantially large demo area inside the building itself.
So, what is this building? Is it really just show off the watch, or is it for another product? We’ll see on March 9th.
