That sphere-like structure on the water outside Marina Bay Sands is the third Apple store that will open in Singapore soon. It's located near the Louis Vuitton Island Maison and ArtScience Museum, too

This story was updated on September 10, 2020.

If you've been wondering what the dome-like structure located on the water by Marina Bay Sands is supposed to be—you're not alone. But fret not as the answer’s finally here: Apple is opening its third outlet in Singapore. It takes over the space that was previously occupied by Avalon nightclub, making it the world’s first floating Apple store.

In an announcement on its website, Apple said: “We will soon open the doors to our new store by the Bay. It will be a space for you to explore, connect and create something new.”

The statement was accompanied by a moving image of an Apple logo that looks like it is half-submerged in water. 

This was later updated to announce that Apple Marina Bay Sands will officially open on September 10. However, visits will be by reservation only as the store will be limiting the number of people inside.

However, fans will have to make do with just the information on its upcoming location. There’s currently no word on the opening date or any other details, at the time of writing.

Apple opened its first store in Singapore to much fanfare back in 2017, at Knightsbridge mall in Orchard Road. Till today, it stands out among the other malls on the shopping belt thanks to its stunning design elements such as the store’s glass facade, the huge canopy outdoors and its beautiful stone staircases located inside. Its second store was launched at Jewel Changi Airport in July last year.

Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, Apple shut all its stores outside of Greater China temporarily back in March. Apple stores in Singapore re-opened on June 24, following the announcement of phase two of Singapore's safe re-opening, with safe distancing measures in place.  

Apple Marina Bay Sands is located at 2 Bayfront Avenue, B2-06
