As you may have heard, Apple is constructing a new campus that began in 2013. The Campus is approximately located one mile east of their current headquarters in Cupertino, California. Matthew Roberts’ latest drone footage of the Apple Park campus reveals the visitor center taking shape, the reassembled historic barn, the lake/pond looking almost ready to be filled with water and a lot more trees in place. The new Apple Park will also have a visitors center with an Apple Store and cafe open to the public.
The footage was taken and recorded by Matthew Roberts.
The campus will consist of:
- 2.8 million sq ft of office space
- 17 megawatts of rooftop solar
- 175-acre campus
- Separate on-site R&D facilities
- 100,000 sq ft. fitness centre
- Underground 1000-seat “Steve Jobs Theater” auditorium
- Will run on 100% renewable energy
- Apple hired architects Foster+Partners for the project
According to Tim Cook, the new theater will be named after Steve Jobs.
To honor his memory and his enduring influence on Apple and the world, the theater at Apple Park will be named the Steve Jobs Theater. Opening later this year, the entrance to the 1,000-seat auditorium is a 20-foot-tall glass cylinder, 165 feet in diameter, supporting a metallic carbon-fiber roof. The Steve Jobs Theater is situated atop a hill — one of the highest points within Apple Park — overlooking meadows and the main building.
I’m personally quite excited in the distant future to go and visit the campus itself. But until then, have a wonderful rest of your day and I’ll see you soon! For now, peace! ✌️
