Apple to Build New 50-Acre Cupertino Campus
A Reuters story reports plans announced by Steve Jobs for a new 50-acre Apple campus a mile from its current headquarters in Cupertino, California. Jobs made the statements Tuesday at a Cupertino city council meeting. The buildings currently on the new property, which Apple acquired as nine separate contiguous parcels, will be razed and rebuilt to suit Apple.
Jobs said that Apple business has tripled in the last five or six years and that it will take three to four years to design and build the campus, designed for 3,000 to 3,500 employees. Apple employees are currently spread over 30 buildings in addition to its headquarters, where Apple has been for 29 of its 30 year history.
Last month it was reported that Apple would also build a new tech support facility in Bangalore, India.
