Apple's HQ Plans: Views of the Ultramodern Site Apple Will Call Home

By Nathan Eddy  |  Posted 2013-11-26

A small selection of renderings offering glimpses of Apple's spaceship-like new headquarters has been floating around the Internet for years now, but just recently, Cupertino, Calif., city officials—who recently gave the green light on Apple's futuristic building—also released two-dozen renderings, giving Apple and architecture fans a much more detailed look at what the building will eventually become. The building was initially scheduled to be opened in 2015, but will actually not open its doors until 2016, due to some delays on Cupertino's environmental impact study. According to Apple's plans for the building, it will span 2.8 million square feet, which makes it one of the largest structures in the world. It'll have everything from a fitness center to a cafeteria to office space, and will be able to accommodate more than 14,000 employees, thousands more than the current campus can hold. Apple bought a chunk of land from Hewlett-Packard to secure the required space for the new HQ. The campus will be 150 acres. Here's a look at the building Apple employees will eventually call home.
