Apple's Spaceship Campus Cleared for Construction

Apple clears hurdles for its new Cupertino campus

Apple is working on plans to build its new round spaceship campus in Cupertino for a long time. The proposed headquarters for Apple was approved unanimously by the Cupertino City Council on Tuesday night. The approval vote cleared the two point million-square-foot facility to move forward.

The so-called spaceship campus is a circular four-story facility that will house up to 14,200 employees. The new campus will be surrounded by acres of green space. The session reportedly went over environmental and other concerns the project poses.

One of the things talked about was the inevitable and significant impact to traffic in the area, which already has a significant issue with traffic congestion. As part of the project, Apple has promised to pay for roadway improvements in the area to alleviate congestion and has vowed to raise the percentage of employees using public transit or Apple shuttle buses to 34%.
