  • 2.8 million sq ft of office space
  • 17 megawatts of rooftop solar
  • 175-acre campus
  • Separate on-site R&D facilities
  • 100,000 sq ft. fitness centre

  • Expected move in date: April 2017

First announced by Steve Jobs in 2006, Apple kicked off construction on its new 175-acre “Campus 2” in late 2013 and expects to start moving in more than 12,000 of its employees when the project is complete in April 2017. The move in process will happen over six months as construction continues through the summer. The campus located approximately one mile east of its current headquarters in Cupertino, California is also often referred to as the Apple “Spaceship” due to the appearance of the site’s main circular building.

According to Tim Cook, the new theater will be named after the late Steve Jobs.

To honor his memory and his enduring influence on Apple and the world, the theater at Apple Park will be named the Steve Jobs Theater. Opening later this year, the entrance to the 1,000-seat auditorium is a 20-foot-tall glass cylinder, 165 feet in diameter, supporting a metallic carbon-fiber roof. The Steve Jobs Theater is situated atop a hill — one of the highest points within Apple Park — overlooking meadows and the main building.

The new Apple Park will also house a visitors center with an Apple Store and cafe open to the public.

Apple’s new Apple Park campus is officially set to open next month, and ahead of that, the company has recently updated Apple Maps with satellite imagery of the new campus and a proper description.

As can see into image above, you get some beautiful 3D imagery of Apple Park in Apple Maps, though not necessarily up to date. Nevertheless, we have some more details and images below…

The latest drone footage of the Apple Park construction progress is in, and it makes an iPad event in the Steve Jobs Theater seem unlikely. We can only now be a matter of weeks away from the event, and there appears to be just too much mess – and too many potential hazards – for Apple to risk having 1,000 people wandering through the site.

It’s a few days since the official naming of Apple’s new campus as Apple Park, and we’re today seeing the first drone footage following the announcement.

The solar panel installation on the garage roofing is now 100% complete, and looks stunning. It seems likely the garage will be home to more electric cars than you’d find at other companies.

The solar panels on the main building are still being added as other work continues to be ready for the first employees to move in in April …

While we’ve all been able to follow the construction progress of Apple Park thanks to drone footage, the company kept us waiting a long time before finally revealing two things: what the campus would be called, and when employees would move in.

The name attracted quite a bit of attention, with some feeling that it was perhaps a little tame to describe such a dramatic building – but I think Eli Schiff hit the nail on the head.

Xerox Parc was where the Macintosh story really began, and I think Apple did indeed intend to reference that when it chose the name for its new campus …
