Apple's 'spaceship' campus design undergoes change


Like any good Apple project, it appears that the Apple "Campus 2" building project in Cupertino, Calif., has undergone some revisions to make it perfect. The spaceship-like building is expected to be finished in 2016, about a year later than originally planned and US$2 billion over the original budget.

The revised plans were published today on Electronista and include a host of changes: 240 more parking spaces (bringing the total to 10,980 spaces), four new public art installations and more bike and walking paths along the private roads around the main building.

But the biggest change is to what is known as the Tantau Development, a separate set of buildings that were going to be built along North Tantau Avenue that would house about 2,200 employees. Originally planned for construction at the same time as the "spaceship," the Tantau Development is now planned for a future second phase. Electronista speculates that at least some of the employees who were to be housed in the Tantau Development might be temporarily moved to the Americas Operation Center, which is rapidly rising in Austin, Texas.
