Apple’s massively expensive new headquarters in California dubbed ‘The Spaceship’ will be move-in ready by April 2017. The construction of buildings and park is scheduled to continue throughout the year, the US tech giant has announced.
In a press statement on its official website, Apple has said that the process of moving more than 12,000 people will take over six months.
To honour the memory of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and his vision to make Apple Park a centre for creativity and collaboration, the theatre at the campus will be named as the ‘Steve Jobs Theatre’. “Steve’s vision for Apple stretched far beyond his time with us. He intended Apple Park to be the home of innovation for generations to come,” said Tim Cook, CEO Apple.
Further, Chief Design Officer, John Ivy stated “Steve invested so much of his energy creating and supporting vital, creative environments. We have approached the design, engineering and making of our new campus with the same enthusiasm and design principles that characterise our products.”
The Apple Park will include a visitation centre with a whole Apple Store and cafe which will be open to the public. Further, employees of Apple will be treated to a 100,000 square-foot fitness centre for their workout needs.
The development of the Apple Park has been a long time coming and has been designed in collaboration with Foster & Partners which would replace five million square feet of asphalt with lush green fields and 100% powered by renewable energy.
