The original Apple store is apparently angling for an upgrade.

Temporary walls advertising “a new chapter” for the company at Tysons Corner Center have been erected next to Victoria’s Secret, the mall announced on April 30, suggesting a new, bigger location is in the works at the home of Apple’s first-ever retail store.

“Hello. Again. The first-ever Apple store opened 22 years ago here at Tysons Corner Center,” the signs say. “Apple now begins their next chapter with us, with a newly-reimagined space coming soon. We feel proud to be a part of their story.”

The new store will have a gross floor area of 13,010 square feet, per an application for a certificate of occupancy that was accepted for review by Fairfax County last Thursday (May 4).

However, further information about what exactly the “reimagined” space will look like has been sparse so far. A Tysons Corner Center spokesperson told FFXnow that more details will be shared “soon” by Apple.

Apple’s media team didn’t return multiple requests for comment by press time.

Tysons Corner Center welcomed the inaugural Apple store on May 19, 2001, beating a store in Glendale, Calif., by just three hours thanks to the difference in time zones.

The upcoming relocation will be the first time that the Tysons store has moved from its original spot near Bloomingdale’s, according to reporter Michael Steeber, who regularly covers Apple-related news.

To mark the store’s 20th anniversary in 2021, an augmented reality experience allowed users to see how it looked in 2001 based on a video tour filmed by Steve Jobs ahead of the grand opening.
