Apple Plans To Build Another Campus
The campus will be built in Sunnyvale, just five miles south of the first spaceship in Cupertino. The so-called Central and Wolfe campus designed by the architecture firm HOK is being developed by Landmark Investments. Though the deal has not been confirmed, but the transactions have been completed. Apple has leased, not purchased, the property, and it's still unclear when construction will begin, reported the Quartz.
The Central & Wolfe campus will span 18 acres, replacing nine buildings of a business park built more than 40 years ago. When construction is completed the site will look radically different, as the old buildings will be replaced with three connected and almost completely circular main edifices. Each of these three new buildings will have a central atrium, and more than half of the campus is considered open-air. (And that's not even including the optional rooftop gardens.)
There will also be, of course, all the amenities we've come to expect from these massive Silicon Valley campuses. Included in the plans: an on-site bank, a cafeteria, a fitness center, a coffee bar, a conference center, a 500-person outdoor amphitheater, food truck access "in and around the quad," a barbershop, athletic fields and courts, a bike repair shop, and a general store. There will also be 2,582 total parking spaces, but only 12 of them will be on the surface of the campus - 1,170 spots will be underground, and the other 1,400 are located in an above-ground garage.
