Isn't there a rather large elevator servicing the street level on each side too?

Yes, it is located in between the entrance doors, facing inside.

Doors were added in order to seal the whole Oculus and convert it into a climate controlled public space. It also keeps wild weather out, say hurricanes.

There's no external door for the elevator? You have to go in at the six doors and then down the elevator?

Most of their stores are silver, so I don't think that is what they were going for, nice try though.

Apple is one of the largest companies in the world, and most people have an apple product, makes sense to have one.

It's already been confirmed Apple has rented out space on the lower level of the mall, specifically being the Oculus.

Where are those grey box girders supposed to end up? I was under the impression that the rafters would be nothing but long white needles, but this looks far more complex.

If most people already have an Apple product why do they need another place to get them?

I wonder if that's maybe some kind of device to make it easier to locate them. They don't appear to be on the rafters when they arrive looking at the pictures provided so they are added on-site. There also bolted on so possibly they will be removed at a later time. The one thing that I thought was strange was the round section that cuts through the rib. I guess that's part of the added structure that was required to keep the rafters from swaying excessively.

Maybe once it is finally in place they can start adding rafters. They are beginning to pile up.
