The Mothership – Apple iCampus

In case you have been living under a rock and haven’t seen the proposed Apple Campus 2, then here you have it…The Mothership.  Coming soon to a Cupertino near you in 2015.

Apple Inc. has submitted a development proposal to replace existing office and research buildings to create its new Apple Campus 2. Most of the 175 acre area is located on the former Hewlett Packard (HP) campus and is bounded by I-280 to the south, Wolfe Road to the west, Homestead Road to the north and North Tantau Avenue to the east.

It includes construction of:

  • An office, research and development building comprising approximately 2.8 million square feet;
  • A 1,000 seat corporate auditorium;
  • A corporate fitness center;
  • A central plant;
  • Research facilities comprising approximately 300,000 square feet located on the east side of Tantau Avenue; and
  • Associated Parking.

You can take a look at the proposal online including floorplans at Cupertino’s site and also voice your concerns over the environmental impact that it may have.

And even more fun is to watch Steve humbly ask for permission to build his dream…whilst the city council members of Cupertino make fools of themselves.
