Apple is asking its Cupertino neighbors to voice out any requests or concerns they might have regarding the Planned Campus 2 which will occupy roughly 300,000 square feet, according to leaked documents.
The company’s chief financial officer, Peter Oppenheimer, has issued a brochure to Apple's neighbors in Cupertino, California, dishing out some facts about the new spaceship-shaped campus, and how its existence will affect the area.
The documents, obtained
, state that Campus 2 won’t replace the 1 Infinite Loop campus, where the top executives are likely to remain.
“Instead, it will just provide ‘research facility’ office space for an additional 13,000 employees, more than 3,000 more than 1 Infinite Loop. There is 300,000 feet of expansion space for future growth.”
Another key takeaway, “Campus 2 will attain LEED certification and will have no manufacturing or heavy industrial activity onsite. Apple has and will continue to take additional steps to reduce auto use by employees. The roof of the main building is a huge solar array.”
The facility will not be open to the public, which is a huge downer since the building promises to be nothing short of spectacular, from every point of view.
There will be a ‘world class’ auditorium located at the southern tip of the new campus. The hall will host product launches and corporate events.
And, at the north west of the main circular building, the corporate fitness center/recreation center will be established, in a separate structure.
The last bullet points state that “Infinite Loop will remain the official corporate HQ,” and that “Apple intends to break ground as soon as Cupertino approves the changes (scheduled for later this year) and still plans to start occupying the space in 2015.”
Apple is asking its neighbors to issue their questions and potential concerns.
