New HQ slated to open in 2015, city soliciting public comments

The city of Cupertino held a meeting on Wednesday summarizing a first evaluation of the environmental impact of Apple's forthcoming Campus 2, a massive redevelopment project involving grounds formerly owned by HP and now controlled by Apple.

Apple's 'spaceship' Campus 2 plan undergoes minor revisions

04/25, 2:01am

Additional buildings pushed back, plans and bike paths added

Apple has filed revisions to its plans for "Campus 2," the spaceship-shaped new campus that is now expected to be completed in 2016, a year late and some $2 billion over budget. Pushed back to a second phase with no timetable, a set of adjacent buildings known as the Tantau Development will now be delayed and not built on the same schedule as the main building. The new plans -- the sixth revision to the approved layout -- will also offer more bike and walking paths along the private roads on the grounds around the main building.

Apple's second campus not coming soon

04/02, 6:20pm

Apple campus

Apple has been planning a second business campus in Cupertino for some time now, but completion of the project may take a little longer than originally planned by CEO Steve Jobs. Two years ago, at a Cupertino City Council meeting, Jobs announced that Apple put together several pieces of land about a mile from its current campus and decided to break ground on the new location as a new separate but connected set of buildings. At the time, Jobs said "It'll take us, you know, three or four years to design it, get all the approvals and get it built." However, two years after the announcement, Apple has not applied for any permits to build on the land, according to Fortune.

Apple expands Cupertino

Apple is reportedly expanding its Cupertino campus by taking possession of buildings abandoned by HP, and in some cases is knocking down the old structures to construct new ones. SetteB.IT reports that Apple is hiring new staff every week to fill the new areas of the campus, since Steve Jobs does not wish to move the headquarters outside of Cupertino. HPs old buildings have painted-over signs, with addresses still written in HPs typical company font; some signs have been finished, bearing the unmistakable grey logo.
