Apple's New HQ

 Apple is upto something sneaky these days, now they are building their own little city. Steve Jobs appeared before the city council of Cupertino to announce the construction of a new Apple “campus”.


On 150 acres of land, Jobs proposes to build a large, circular building which will hold 12,000 employees.

 Located at:
Dubbed the “City of Apple”, the new campus will span 148 acres (including 50 acres purchased in 2006), making it the future headquarters of the industry giant. The project will feature a strong focus on creating a sustainable environment, and much of the development’s infrastructure will be built around renewable energy.

While no renderings have been revealed, it has been reported that Apple’s new headquarters will include a network of tunnels that joins the buildings together while maintaining green surface areas. It has also been reported that new city will be modeled after Foster + Partners’ carbon-neutral Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, which is currently under construction.
I can't wait to see the result. All I think is it would be a great place to work.
