According to a new report from Curbed, Apple budgeted $1 million for the staircase of its new Union Square flagship retail store in San Francisco.
The report notes that the company was expected to spend $23.6 million renovating the building. Apple spent $19 million on the exterior of the building, $1 million on the staircases, $82,000 for the exterior signage, and $2,000 on the Apple logo.

The figures in the report are just estimates that Apple gave to San Francisco City Hall before the construction actually began, so the final costs of the construction could have been much higher.
