Apple Plans New Santa Clara Campus




The Oakland Tribune is reporting that Apple has closed a deal with developer Peery Arrillaga for a custom two-building campus in Santa Clara, California, just a short distance from their headquarters in Cupertino.
Quote:
Apple and Peery Arrillaga declined to discuss the development and leasing deal. However, multiple sources with direct knowledge of the transaction told this newspaper that Apple has leased nearly 296,000 square feet from Peery Arrillaga in a deal that included demolition of existing buildings.
The campus would include two six-story office buildings that would hold 1,200 Apple employees. The first building, which is 188,000 square feet, is expected to be completed in mid-2014. The second building doesn't have a starting construction date yet, but will be 108,000 square feet. Recently, Bloomberg reported that Apple's "Spaceship" campus would be completed in 2016.

There are already thousands of employees working in the buildings on the land where the new campus will be built.

Those employees have to be moved to other locations before that land can be cleared to start the new spaceship campus.

Right! Everyone should have the opportunity to brag about their reading skills. It's interesting to see how many users on this forum are reading challenged.

The benefits are the same as renting an apartment. You don't need to manage building maintenance and other operations, and you avoid having to deal with ever changing building taxation rules. Apple's expertise is not building management, and leasing dumps that onto experts in the field.

The same way that you could've just not clicked the up arrow and moved on. The same way I could've just not clicked the up arrow on your post and not made this post.

But this is a discussion forum, people would rather talk than give an anonymous thumbs up.

Research lab free of the confines of the corporate culture, think a modern day Bell Labs or PARC.

Versus a campus that will be there for at least 30 years?

That was never the intention of that building. As was mentioned, the "spaceship" will hold around 12-13 thousand people. Apple currently employs 15,000 in Cupertino alone ... and that number is growing at a rapid rate.

The "impracticality" is that it's a very large (in area) campus, but will have far fewer people than some much smaller (in area) campuses nearby.

Maybe they could make it an 8 story doughnut - but it still wouldn't hold anywhere close to the number of people that a more practical campus of rectangular buildings would hold.

Just kill the thing, it's a bad design.

But it's too small even before the first ground is broken....
Dude, we get it... you hate the building. Pull your investment out of it and ****.

many many companies have a campus that only holds a certain amount of employees, mainly because if apple or any other company that big made it any bigger it would choke the traffic in the city (cupertino) to a stand still.. it's not irresponsible to consider your areas infrastructure.
