You want a spaceship? Go for it.

Apple's Campus 2 building has been approved by Cupertino City Council

Campus 2

Apple has been given the all-clear by Cupertino City Council, and we can expect its new Campus 2 – aka ‘the spaceship’ – to land in 2016. Following a unanimous vote by the City Council in favour of the project, Mayor Mahoney said: “We’re eager to see it happen. Go for it.”

Phase 1 of the new campus building will comprise a 2.8 million square foot ring, including a 120,000 square foot auditorium, a 100,000 square foot fitness centre and 2,400 spaces in an underground car park. Phase 2 will then see the addition of 600,000 square feet of office, research and development buildings, but it doesn’t stop there. The idea is to replenish the 150-acre plot of land that the spaceship is being built in with trees, orchards and landscaped gardens, meaning that it really will be a beautiful, high-tech, self-contained world of its own for the 12,000 employees who will work there.

We’re hoping that Phase 3 will reveal an immense portal at the centre of the campus, through which people can travel to an Apple Store on Mars.
