Apple readies to move into its new home, Apple Park
Plus a tribute to Steve Jobs
Leading technology firm Apple is ready to move into Apple Park, its new campus in Cupertino that's sprawled across 175 acres. The shifting process – forecasted to take a full six months – will begin in April and will run concurrently with further construction work on the project that will house more than 12,000 employees. At the heart of the new ring-shaped campus is the 2.8 million sq ft main building that features the world's largest panels of curved glass.
Another highlight of the Apple Park will be the 1,000-seat auditorium to be named the Steve Jobs Theater after the company's visionary founder. "Steve's vision for Apple stretched far beyond his time with us," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO. "He intended Apple Park to be the home of innovation for generations to come. The workspaces and parklands are designed to inspire our team as well as benefit the environment. We've achieved one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the world and the campus will run entirely on renewable energy."
Apart from the theatre, the campus will also house a visitor centre, an Apple Store, a gym, R&D spaces as well as an orchard, grassland and a water feature. Watch the construction of Apple Park now...
