Apple will be opening a new store near the Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore, the company said this week, its third retail store in the country. The building, which appears to be floating on water, looks somewhat like a giant, glowing orb. An official date for the store opening hasn't been released yet, but Apple's website says the company "will soon open the doors to our new store by the Bay."

Apple also said on its site that "Apple Marina Bay Sands will be at the heart of creativity, a place we've made for you to capture your ideas and passions. It will be a space for you to explore, connect and create something new." 

The Marina Bay Sands resort shared Apple's opening news in a tweet Monday.
