Apple loves all things new -- and that includes its stores.

The highly-profitable company has submitted plans for a new retail store in San Francisco's Union Square, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The new store will inhabit the space formerly occupied by the Levi's store at Post Street, a few blocks away from the current Stockton and Ellis streets location, which has been heavily impacted by Central Subway construction.

There's no word yet on when the store will make the move, but the new space will be "45 percent larger" and employ 50 more people than the 350 people currently at work at the Apple store.

Mayor Ed Lee, said to be "excited" by the move, will also enjoin the company to make the new building "green."
