After waiting more than two and a half years following a purchase of a Wisconsin Avenue building, Apple Inc. will open its doors in Georgetown on June 18 at 5 p.m.

Apple purchased the building, located at 1229 Wisconsin Ave., in 2007, according to the Washington Business Journal.

A lengthy approval process, focused on the storefront’s design, delayed the store's opening, according to the Washington Business Journal. The Old Georgetown Board and the Advisory Neighborhood Commission turned down the store’s original designs because they did not fit into Georgetown’s historic look.

The board and commission rejected four designs before eventually approving a modified store design in March 2009, according to Vox Populi.

The Georgetown Apple store is the most recent of eight Washington area stores.
