Apple’s Boarding Date for Spaceship Campus

Apple plans to begin moving into its new Apple Park campus in Cupertino, CA in April 2017. More than 12,000 employees will start filling the 2.8-million-square-foot “spaceship” facility, a process that will span roughly six months before everyone is aboard.

Featuring a Neo-futuristic centerpiece ring building that’s clad in curved glass, the campus was constructed at an estimated cost of more than $5 billion.

Apple Park features:

  • Grassy fields and more than 9,000 drought-resistant and native trees replace five million square feet of asphalt and concrete.
  • Campus operates on 100% renewable energy.
  • Massive on-site solar energy installation produces 17 megawatts.
  • World’s largest naturally ventilated building requires no HVAC majority of year.
  • More than two miles of walking and running trails, and a 100,000-square-foot gym.

Apple’s main, 1,000-seat theater will be named the Steve Jobs Theater. Enclosed in a 20-foot-tall glass cylinder, the facility is 165 feet in diameter.
