Apple’s 70-Hectare “Apple Park” Opens In April And It Looks Like A Spaceship

Apple is calling a 175-acre (or almost 71 hectares) property their new home soon, and it looks fantastic.

As one of the world’s tech giants, it comes as no surprise that Apple’s new campus is poised as the company of the future in Cupertino, California, as envisioned by Steve Jobs before his death.

The campus, known as “Apple Park”, boasts of groundbreaking technology and a futuristic, spaceship-like circular structure that will be the park’s focal point.

The headquarters will be one of the largest on-site solar energy installations with solar panels on the roof, as well the world’s largest ventilated building. The campus will not require heating or air-conditioning for nine months of the year. According to CEO Tim Cook:

We’ve achieved one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the world and the campus will run entirely on renewable energy.

The colossal circular structure is 2.8 million square feet, “clad entirely in the world’s largest panels of curved glass.” The public can visit the structure through the visitor center, which also houses a café and an Apple Store.

Apple Park also houses a 1,000-seat theater, which Cook said will be named the ‘Steve Jobs Theater’, in memory of the company’s co-founder and former CEO.

The company’s employees will also enjoy a 100,000 square-foot fitness center, sprawling research and development facilities, and more. The campus is also home to two miles of walking paths, an orchard, meadow, and a pond in the interior circle.

Apple prides itself on “green infrastructure” as they replaced 5 million square feet of asphalt and concrete “with grassy fields and over 9,000 native and drought-resistant trees.”

Sounds exciting!
