Years later, when Apple decided to open its second flagship store in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, Hoerr Schaudt was naturally the landscape architect of choice. The architectural footprint on this busy triangular site, which also included a subway station entrance and a café, left ample room for an open-air plaza. Because this was a private public partnership between Apple and the Chicago Transit (CTA) Authority, it was determined that this space should be democratic; a gathering place for people whether they were customers, commuters, or pedestrians. The resulting plaza reinforces the dialogue between the two buildings while serving as destination in the neighborhood. The design welcomes people with portable furniture, a soothing water feature, and dappled shade provided by a bosque of Honeylocust trees.
