Apple Headquarters has finally become too big for its britches.
On Thursday, Cupertino held the first public hearing on the proposed Apple Campus Two. The plan: a staggering 2.8-million-square-foot ring-shaped main building that will house 12,000 employees and a central courtyard. Besides the main building, the 175-acre plot will also contain a 1000-seat auditorium, a corporate fitness center, research facilities and a 4,300-car parking structure, according to SFGate.
We've seen these office parks with lots of buildings and they get boring pretty fast," said Steve Jobs at a Cupertino City Council meeting. " So we'd like to do something better than that."
According to TechCrunch, the plan was well received. "There is no chance that we're saying no," said Cupertino Mayor Gilbert Wong. While city will still need to review the environmental impact of the plan, the project is expected to begin soon and be completed by 2015.
Steve Jobs may be stepping down, but it looks like Apple isn't going anywhere.
