Apple has sought feedback from its Cupertino neighbours surrounding its planned ‘Campus 2’ site.
Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer sent a detailed brochure to Apple HQ’s neighbours last week, providing information about the new site and inviting their responses.
The new 175-acre campus will be built on former HP grounds and will have a solar roof and a low carbon Central Plant that will supply the majority of the site’s power.
According to 9to5 Mac the brochure confirms ‘Campus 2’ will not replace the 1 Infinite Loop campus, rather “it will provide ‘research facility’ office space for an additional 13,000 employees” and “300,000 feet of expansion space for future growth”.
The ‘Campus 2’ main building amasses 2.8 million square feet over four stories and will include a fitness and recreation centre and a 120,000 square foot auditorium to host 1,000 people for corporate events and product launches.
Apple’s new site will be divided into six distinct sections, feature underground parking and will be closed to the public.
The construction is scheduled to finish in 2015.
