    Do you have any concerns about the new campus and all the people that will go with it, being so close to you? In other words, do they have your support?

    It's good that they are at least making local residents aware of what they are proposing to do.

    This is the normal thing to do in all major developments like this? Aren't they compelled by law to do it?

    In some places, yes they are. Depends on the local planning and zoning laws. I'm sure this packet of information is way in excess of what any plan commission would require, though.

    But when you are doing something massive like this, it sure makes Apple look better by including the neighborhood and inviting them to feel like part of something rather then saying, "We own this property, you don't. We can do what we want with it," and inviting all kinds of lawsuits and court delays.

    I see they've gone for "Apple Campus 2" and not "the new Apple Campus".

    Or not the Second Generation Apple Campus. ;)

    The government needs to modernize.

    That's some pretty cool material OP. Tried my best to read the letter. Looks like the city is going to approve by the end of the year, and groundbreaking will take place immediately after. With Apple planning to occupy in 2015, that's a solid 2-3 years of construction.

    It's probably not high up on their priorities to make their new developments attractive. If they did and spent a lot on it people would complain about them wasting tax money or something. In comparison Apple is all about the design of things.

    I would hope so, considering that building technology should improve over 70 years.

    Given the age and resiliency, I'm much more impressed by the designer of the Pentagon.

    And how many wasted man-years going from/to 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock? ;)
