    Apple CEO Tim Cook plans to work out of Apple Park, the official name for Apple's second spaceship-shaped campus, according to information obtained by The Chronicle.

    Cook will presumably move his office from Apple's Infinite Loop campus to Apple Park when it opens for employees in April of 2017. Apple announced its plans to open Apple Park in April in a press statement released this morning.

    Apple Park will eventually house more than 12,000 employees, who will move to the campus over a period of six months. While Apple Park will open in a little over a month, smaller construction projects and landscaping will continue into the summer.


    In addition to the main ring-shaped building, Apple Park includes a visitor's center with a full Apple Store and cafe, a fitness center for employees, auxiliary research buildings, underground parking structures, a cafeteria, and a theater named "Steve Jobs Theater" after late Apple CEO Steve Jobs.

    The entire campus is powered by 100 percent renewable energy and features huge swathes of greenery suitable for the California climate, with more than 9,000 native and drought-resistant trees.

    First conceived in 2011 by Steve Jobs, Apple Park has been under construction since 2013 and is rumored to have cost Apple upwards of $5 billion.

    Yeah it was kind of expected for the CEO of Apple to move into the company's $5,000,000,000+ campus after years and years of planning.

    They can make the old campus into a museum showcasing what the company used to be.....

    I'll leave that open to your own thoughts and imagination.....

    As he should. Although, there is such a huge group of people on here that say pretty much anything Cook does is a reason he should be fired, there are sure to be many who disagree with this move.

    It's news when he sells a bit of stock, goes on a trip, attends an event, or says literally anything at all, so I think this counts! It was expected, sure, but now it's confirmed.

    Yep, just him and his iPad.

    Meanwhile, the MacPro hasn't been updated in 1162 days, while it's been 860 for the Mac mini.

    He already doesn't own a Mac Pro, but the design team do and I'm sure they'll be happy with moving to iPad Pros for CAD work.

    I personally think Xcode running on an iPad Pro would be very interesting.

    So what's happening to Steve Job's old office and contents? It's been stated that his office remains untouched and unoccupied since he passed away in 2011.

    Is there a plan to shift everything to a room or office at the new Apple Park? Or is it to be packed-up and stored? Just curious...

    It'll probably stay right where it is. It's not like they're shutting down the Infinite Loop campus.

    No corner office, however.

    Edit: Darn, Garsun beat me.

    It's so cold, so impersonal when you're at the top.

    No.

    Apple's Silicon Valley employees are spread through many office complexes in the Cupertino/Sunnyvale area. What Apple Park does is allow core engineering to inhabit the same building, namely iPhone hardware engineering, iOS software engineering, Mac hardware engineering, and macOS software engineering. That comprises 85% of Apple's revenues.

    Other likely Apple Park groups would be the hardware and software groups for Apple Watch and Apple TV. Despite their low current revenue, these groups are highly connected to the iOS/macOS environment. Others on different rumor sites seem to think similarly.

    What will close down will be dozens of satellite campuses strewn all over Cupertino and Sunnyvale. The spaces vacated at 1 Infinite Loop (and other nearby buildings) will be repopulated with people from these auxiliary campuses.

    I doubt if Apple will ever leave 1 Infinite Loop. It is very near the buildings where Apple got its start, the Mariani Avenue area.

    This is understandably difficult for someone from Melbourne, Australia to understand, but if you grew up in Silicon Valley and watched Apple's growth, it would be pretty obvious.

    I'm a bit curious how a tweet from Owen Thomas becomes a fait accompli. He is not a reliable tech blogger and at one time had the reputation of making T-I-H-S up to generate page views for his long dead trash outlet Valleywag (a former property of scumbag Nick Denton's now fallen Gawker Media empire). As far as I can tell, anything Owen Thomas writes is highly dubious, like DigiTimes.

    So when will Apple Park 2 be released? I'll wait to move into that one so they can work out all the kinks in the first one.​

    Well, we now know that a complex, circular-shaped object takes c. 6 years to go from Concept to Finish at Apple.....
