Apple Plans New Santa Clara Campus


The Oakland Tribune is reporting that Apple has closed a deal with developer Peery Arrillaga for a custom two-building campus in Santa Clara, California, just a short distance from their headquarters in Cupertino.
Apple and Peery Arrillaga declined to discuss the development and leasing deal. However, multiple sources with direct knowledge of the transaction told this newspaper that Apple has leased nearly 296,000 square feet from Peery Arrillaga in a deal that included demolition of existing buildings.
The campus would include two six-story office buildings that would hold 1,200 Apple employees. The first building, which is 188,000 square feet, is expected to be completed in mid-2014. The second building doesn't have a starting construction date yet, but will be 108,000 square feet. Recently, Bloomberg reported that Apple's "Spaceship" campus would be completed in 2016.

Versus a campus that will be there for at least 30 years? :rolleyes:


No, regardless of how long it might be used - it's a campus that will be too small before it is even built.


What's impractical about it, in principle? Couldn't they just make it bigger?


The "impracticality" is that it's a very large (in area) campus, but will have far fewer people than some much smaller (in area) campuses nearby.

Maybe they could make it an 8 story doughnut - but it still wouldn't hold anywhere close to the number of people that a more practical campus of rectangular buildings would hold.

Just kill the thing, it's a bad design.

It's bigger than the Pentagon.


But it's too small even before the first ground is broken....
