Apple Expected to Hold Sept. 9 iPhone/Apple TV Event at Bill Graham Civic Center in San FranciscoPosted: August 26, 2015
Apple recently has venturing out from the norm when it comes to where it hosts its product unveil events.
Chance Miller reports: The Planning Department documents simply list that a company has reserved the location for a “trade show” running from September 4th to September 10th, although no company has publicly confirmed that it has reserved the location.

Furthermore, several planned street closures also corroborate the idea of Apple holding its event at the Bill Graham Civic Center:
Furthermore, planned street closures in the area reveal that Grove Street in front of the auditorium will be shut down to traffic from 6pm on Tuesday Sept. 8th to 11:59pm on Thursday Sept. 10th, while Fulton between Hyde and Larkin will be shut down on Wednesday Sept. 9th between 4am and 11:59pm. That block of Fulton is frequently used as a staging area for film crews and equipment in the Civic Center area, as it was during February’s filming of the upcoming Steve Jobs movie.

Of course, the Apple Watch event was the wasn’t the first time Apple had used the Flint Center. The company also unveiled the original iMac at De Anza in 1998 and the Mac in 1984, making it a marquee location in Apple’s history.
