Apple’s iconic glass cube has returned to its flagship Fifth Avenue store, new photos captured by Field Condition reveal. Last summer, the cube was removed, as part of renovation and expansion work that the tech giant was doing on its flagship store, and it wasn’t clear when the cube would return.

Luckily for its admirers, the cube has returned exactly as it was before its sabbatical—three full height glass panels per facade. Apple brought on Foster + Partners’ to redesign the store, which is now more than doubling its underground footprint from 32,000 square feet to 77,000 square feet.

In September last year, Apple announced that it was targeting a late 2018 reopening for the store, and Field Condition has now learned that the flagship will open sometime in November this year. Other new additions to the site include the tree plantings on either side of the cube.
