Apple Employees Will Soon be Working Out of a Giant Spaceship Campus

Here are three words guaranteed to capture your attention: Apple spaceship campus.

The tech giant confirmed Wednesday that Apple Park — the 175-acre campus co-founder Steve Jobs once compared to a spaceship — will open to employees in April. Apple says it will take more than six months to move the 12,000-plus employees to the new campus in Cupertino, Calif., which is where Apple’s current headquarters resides.

The project is an important one for Apple. It was first envisioned by Jobs “as a center for creativity and collaboration,” said Apple in a statement. It features a ring-shaped, 2.8 million-square-foot main building boasting the world’s largest panels of curved glass.

“Steve’s vision for Apple stretched far beyond his time with us,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook in a statement. “He intended Apple Park to be the home of innovation for generations to come.”
