One of the interesting new additions is a glass pavilion which houses an underground auditorium that will host press events and product launches. Other on-site features include a gym for employees, a 2000-space garage situated underneath the main building, and an additional above-ground parking garage on the edge of the campus. For employees who arrive by bus, the Corporate Transit Center is located on the edge of the site, with two appropriately white staircases leading to the main building. The landscaping is also an important part of the campus, with a dense perimeter of trees lining the site allowing for the secrecy Apple has become known for. Inside the inner ring of the main building will be specially planted apple, cherry, plum and apricot trees.
The estimated project budget is at $5 billion USD, but with Cupertino City Officials recently giving approval on the design and with Apple’s ever-growing hold on the marketplace, it’s only a matter of time until “Campus 2″ comes to life.
