I would also like to see Apple have a more prominent retail face downtown as well. However, having seen the leaked design drawing, I am very concerned.
Why the suburban approach in this very urban location? I can't believe they can get this through design review. If they do, it is because they have strong armed the city.
For a company that is all about design, it is a shame that they are proposing such a singularity for downtown Portland.
Do we need to beg? I will beg...
Apple, please do better than this!

Apple's architecture is all about corporate ego. The company is so rich, nothing else matters...sustainability, context, blah blah. Money does what money wants. This is corporate greed and insensitivity at its "best."
