When Steve Jobs presented his plans for a massive, spaceship-like headquarters in the City of Cupertino, the town's city council fawned over his blueprints. There's little reason for the city to turn down Apple, one of the world's biggest companies, and its tax dollars.
As the City of Cupertino moves through its review process of Apple's plans, more details and documents are being released to the public. We now know that Jobs hopes to erect a four-story, 2.8 million square-foot structure by 2015. The building should house 13,000 employees, a 1,000-person auditorium and a 300,000 square-foot research facility.
The latest release from Cupertino, which is currently assessing the environmental impact of the proposed structure, includes the renderings embedded below.
