Apple’s New campus Will Be Known as Apple Park

Posted by at 9:24 am on February 22, 2017

Apple has announced that its spaceship looking campus, now call Apple Park, will open in April.

Apple Park is a 175-acre campus housing a 2.8 million-square-foot main building; a 1,000-seat theater named after Steve Jobs; a 100,000 square-foot fitness center for Apple employees; research and development facilities; and “two miles of walking and running paths for employees, plus an orchard, meadow and pond within the ring’s interior grounds.”

Apple noted that the entire campus, not just the namesake theater, is meant as a memorial for Jobs, who died of pancreatic cancer in October 2011.

“Steve invested so much of his energy creating and supporting vital, creative environments. We have approached the design, engineering and making of our new campus with the same enthusiasm and design principles that characterize our products,” said Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer. “Connecting extraordinarily advanced buildings with rolling parkland creates a wonderfully open environment for people to create, collaborate and work together. We have been extremely fortunate to be able to work closely, over many years, with the remarkable architectural practice Foster + Partners.”

Apple Park will also include a visitors center with an Apple Store and cafe open to the public

About 12,000 of Apple’s 100,000 employees will work at Apple Park, once they movie in.
