The city of Cupertino publishes the latest plans for the future Apple campus, the construction of which was postponed until mid-2016.
The city of Cupertino has just published on his site the latest plans for the Apple Super Campus project. The American glove has recently updated its plans which mainly concern some modifications concerning the amphitheater attached to the future spacecraft now moved further from the road and thereby adding more parking spaces.
As a reminder, the Campus 2 project, as it is called Apple, was designed by the architectural firm Foster & Partners. The building will extend over 260,000 m and will be eco-friendly: 60% trees, -90% parking, -30% footprint for buildings. The new building must be able to accommodate 13,000 people.
In addition, the Cupertino company will install numerous solar panels and fuel cells on its campus, with the aim of using 100% renewable energy and offering nearly 300 charging stations for electric vehicles.
In addition, Apple also plans to build two other buildings dedicated to offices and research, but these will be built in a second step. They will spread over an area of 27,900m and will be able to accommodate nearly 2,200 other employees.
Apple’s new campus was originally slated to be built in 2015. However, construction was delayed in mid-2016 due to its environmental impact.
The initial Campus 2 project was presented in June 2011 by Steve Jobs to the municipal council of the city of Cupertino. It was the last public appearance of the old C.E.O from Apple, just a few days after its last keynote where there are notably liOS 5 and liCloud.
