Apple plans new campus

Apple is planning to build a new 50-acre campus near its present headquarters in Cupertino, California, according to Reuters report. "What's happened at Apple is that our business has basically tripled in the last five or six years," Jobs said on Tuesday evening at a Cupertino city council meeting. "[Apple] has gone from $6 billion in sales to $20 billion in sales, basically." The new campus, which will take 3-4 years to design and build, will accommodate between 3,000 to 3,500 employees. The company plans on razing the buildings now on the property which is located about one mile away. Jobs addressed the Cupertino City Council members on Tuesday, April 18: "We're pretty thrilled," Jobs told the city council members. "Since we're your largest taxpayer, I thought you might be happy for us."

    Jobs comment

    The last comment in the article from Jobs seems just like something he'd say. And I'm betting He's right. If they design something that's as nice as their current buildings then it'll increase the land value in that area which will increase tax revenue. They probably can't wait for Apple to break ground on the project.

    Razing the old buildings

    The summary made me think they were going to knock down the buildings on their current campus, while in fact they'll be knocking down buildings on the newly purchased land, in order to build their new campus.

    You obviously don't know the relationship apple has had with the city of cupertino. Remember this is the same area that thinks it is the greatest place to live in the world and every other place is inferior. Pretty much what they think of people.

    Dude, 1 Infinite Loop isn't going anywhere. They're tearing down buildings on the property they just bought, not their current campus.

    1 Infinite Loop

    I misread the article, the buildings on the newly acquired properties are being razed, not 1 Infinite Loop. I confirmed this earlier with an Apple employee friend of mine while attending a funeral.

    Wow, that would be smug, if it weren't for the fact that most every town and city think the same freakin' thing!
