Construction on Apple’s new flagship store in Chicago is nearing completion this week as crews were spotted adding a finishing touch to the roof that wasn’t in the original plans.

Early renderings of the metallic roof for the Michigan Ave store showed a pretty plain looking roof, but a new Apple logo has been added to the top and it makes the entire roof look like a giant MacBook.

Check it out:

Apple’s store on the iconic “Magnificent Mile” is being mostly built underground at 401 N. Michigan Ave. The Apple plaza-level entrance is absolutely fabulous though and will reportedly cost Apple more than $ 60 million.

longtime Apple partner Foster+Partners designed the new store. It’s supposed to be an homage of Chicago architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie Style home, with all glass walls and a metal roof. An opening date for the new store hasn’t been announced yet but it looks close to complete.
