Apple's 100,000 square foot fitness center, a must-have perk in the highly-competitive Silicon Valley market, will cost the company $74 million.

Apple's second campus, located in close proximity to its existing 1 Infinite Loop campus in Cupertino, will cost the company more than $5 billion dollars in total. As of the latest update, Apple had largely finished pouring the foundation for the main circular building, and had commenced building the actual structure. The campus, which will house approximately 12,000 employees, is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.

I don't want to make an outlandish prediction, but I think it's going to be the most beautiful spaceship campus they've ever built.

Cost of doing business. Prime realestate for Apple, and only $1340 and $740/sqft respectively. Plus, it flies.

It's actually the world's first Terran Command Center. I wonder if they'll choose to upgrade it to an Orbital Command or Planetary Fortress (or maybe they'll be old school and get a Comsat Station or a Nuclear Silo add-on?)

I've been told at nearly every job that space and facility is the second largest expense for a company, after the people (payroll).

Amen. This area is outrageous. My family on the East coast would have me locked up in an insane asylum if they knew how much I spent on this 1950 house!
