Apple’s Second Campus Build in Full Swing
Chris Smith / 3 years ago
Pictured above is the scale model for Apple’s Campus 2, being constructed in Cupertino, California.
The new building is to be completely circular in shape, includes some crazy extras and has already set the giant manufacturer $160 million in purchases for the land rights. But as for recent updates, there has been some sneak peek photos posted to Twitter by San Francisco news and traffic reporter Ron Cervi:
Cervi’s photo confirms the curved structuring and you can pinpoint a few underground tunnels that have already been dug out.
This campus was originally announced in 2006 by the late Steve Jobs with a commencement date of 2013 set. Unfortunately due to delays, it didn’t begin construction until 2014 with an extended finishing date of “sometime in 2016”.
Built to house 13,000 employees, it’s certainly an extravagant spaceship look-alike building. Believed to be featuring 7,000 trees, a 3,000 person café, a 1,000 seat auditorium, 300,000 square feet of research and development, fitness facilities and even includes an orchard.
Unfortunately, that’s all the information available at hand currently, but when there are future updates we will be sure to report.
What do you think of such extravagant establishment setups? Do you think companies like Apple, Blizzard and Google are going over the top with their facilities? Or is it all part of their company culture and brand recognition plans?
