Apple's space ship campus will finally land in April 2017. The company's new headquarters in Tupatino, California will officially be called Apple Park. The 175 acre campus has been in the works since 2006 when former CEO Steve Jobs announced plans for the second Apple campus. Construction began in twenty fourteen and there were plenty of drone pilots rushing to capture fly over footage. It's been referred to as the space ship campus for sometimes because it's a ring shaped main building. The two point eight square foot structure is covered entirely in curved glass To honor Steve Jobs the theater in Apple Park will be named after him. It's a 20 foot tall glass cylinder with metallic carbon fiber roof that will seat 1,000 people. And Apple Park is said to be environmentally conscious with a 17 megawatt rooftop solar installation. The main building has also been designed so no heating or air conditioning is needed for nine months of the year. On top of being Apple's HQ, the campus will also have a visitor center, cafe, and who would have guess it, an Apple Store opened to the public. Apple Park will have 12,000 employees. That's a lot of people to shuffle over from the current headquarter at one infinite loop so it can miracle happen over 6 months.
