Apple Campus 2 is an upcoming future headquarters of Apple Inc. in Cupertino, California. It is under construction and is expected to be completed by Q4 2016, and start occupying in early 2017.
On June 7, 2011, Apple’s then-CEO Steve Jobs presented to Cupertino City Council details of the architectural design of the new buildings and their environs. It is in circular shape, resembling a spaceship that has just landed, because of the use of glass and the shape, on a site now totaling 176 acres (0.71 km2), is planned to house up to 13,000 employees in one central four-storied circular building of approximately 2,800,000 square feet (260,000 m2).
Steve Jobs wanted the whole campus to look less like an office park and more like a nature refuge. Eighty percent of the site will be green space planted with fruit trees.
