  • 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
  • Underground 1000-seat “Steve Jobs Theater” auditorium
  • Will run on 100% renewable energy
  • Apple hired architects Foster+Partners for the project
  • 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.

In a new interview with the Wall Street Journal, Apple’s design chief Jony Ive details various elements of Apple Park including a few tidbits we haven’t heard before. Ive’s interview will be the cover story on the WSJ Magazine’s August issue.

Although the piece does not say when Apple Park will be fully up and running, it does say that Ive’s design team will move over in the fall, scheduled as ‘one of the last’. This suggests that Apple is aiming to have all employees at Apple Park by the end of the year.
