Apple’s project of building a new manufacturing plant sees green light, as the Cupertino city council unanimously vote for the plan

According to Apple Balla, the tech giant has received the final approval for its “Spaceship” campus project which is going to be built on a 176-acre area in Cupertino.

The final approval was just a formality, as Apple achieved a unanimous vote from the Cupertino city council in the last month.

The planned location for the project was used as HP’s campus. Apple started demolishing the structure of the previous building before it received the final approval.

Orrin Mahoney, the mayor of Cupertino city, is very enthusiastic about the Apple campus. He said, “We’re eager to see it happen. Go for it.”

Apple will have to pay an enhanced amount of tax as a part of the agreement. However, the council has reduced the sales tax rebate for the tech giant to 35 percent. Last year, Apple had to pay a tax rebate of 50 percent.

Apple co-founder, late Steve Jobs, first revealed the plan of building a new manufacturing plant. The campus is designed to have a shape similar to a ring. It will be a four storied building, with curved glass and steel, surrounded by more than 7000 trees. The campus is expected to take in more than 14000 employees.
