Two years after the late Steve Jobs proposed an idea for a new Apple headquarters in Cupertino, the same city where the current Apple base is located, comes the approval from the city’s council to build the new “spaceship” building. In order to reach an agreement, Apple had to work some strings, and will be giving back 35% of sales tax to the city, thus when permits are administered Apple can begin constructing the base today.
The specs? A 2.8-million square foot glass-clad structure, which you see above is the main hub of the whole affair, with an underground parking facility that can hold around 2,400 vehicles. A 100,000 square foot fitness center, a 120,000 square foot auditorium, and plenty space for the company’s famous research and development division will be available, with the entirety of the building meant to be as eco-friendly as possible.
