Cupertino-based Apple Inc. leased a nondescript, 1950’s-era industrial property in Sunnyvale. The former 96,000-square-foot Pepsi bottling plant sits on a 5-acre site located at 960 Kifer Rd.
Apple occupies several properties nearby, and reportedly uses other industrial facilities in Sunnyvale for research on its car project, though the company didn’t confirm that is what would be housed at this location. Building permits filed with the city indicate that the company isn’t planning to develop a new facility there.
The former Pepsi warehouse has been vacant since its lease expired in 2013.
