City people are lost in desire, rushing to somewhere or nowhere.

Looks like Apple is doing pretty well at IFC! BTW is there water surrounding the store? Why is the sides alway blocked?

Don't think anyone has asserted there's something wrong with it.

So glad that at least the Apple Store is brining some people into this area. It would be cool if they could open some exotic fashion store rather than the Nike or Addidas store there in the background. Something like G-star, or like Abercrombie and Fitch would be awesome!

Yeah good point. To be straight forward, something buyable hahaha
Maybe some local brands mixing with these higher end brand might help boost their image. I'm not too fond of these high end brands, its always the same few, they look the same everywhere, rather stupid and unoriginal

But this is the wrong place to have every-day ordinary stores, having brands like Vertu and Chanel right in the mall behind it.

Exactly. IFC is supposed to bring an atmosphere of international high-end luxury. It'd be nice to have some everyday stores so patrons won't go home empty-handed. Maybe there will be a 7-11 or Kede within?

I was hoping to have a high end convenient store where Nike and Addidas are located.

I don't think that will happen. The shops there enjoy great frontage.

I actually thought the better frontage would be inside the mall, rather than facing a sunken plaza that is not visible at street-level (although won't expect the streets to be packed anyway).

I think by having Apple within the piazza area attracts people to come down and take a look benefiting the other stores. The stores are also visible at street level. I would say the best street frontages at IFC house all the luxury brands esspecially the Louis Vuitton one.

But the problem is why would people come via the street - because there's no actual street-level retail for them to be there in the first place.
