Plans to demolish part of Melbourne’s landmark Federation Square to make way for a new Apple store designed by Foster & Partners have been pushed back by a year.

Federation Square’s annual report reveals construction is now a year behind the original schedule.

When announced last year, work was expected to begin in early 2019, with the store to open in 2020. Now work will start in 2020, with the store opening in 2021.
