Apple slåss för sin butik i Kungsträdgården: ”Vill inte öppna någon annanstans”

Den nya blågröna majoriteten i Stockholm stad har definitivt satt spiken i kistan för techjätten Apples planer att bygga en flaggskeppsbutik i Kungsträdgården.

Genom en skrivelse i stadsbyggnadsnämnden beslutade kommunen i slutet på förra veckan att avbryta Apples planarbete.

Men situationen är komplex och Apple äger fortfarande tomträtten till fastigheten. Techjätten har velat bygga utanför den detaljplan som finns sedan tidigare, som i dag huserar en restaurang, vilket skulle innebära att 375 kvadratmeter parkyta försvinner.
