On June 7th during a City Council Meeting Mr. Jobs unveiled the company’s plans to construct a new building. Over the last five years Apple has acquired land that was previously owned by Hewlett-Packard. Apple plans to clear the whole are and make 1 Circular Building that can house up to 12,000 Employees. That’s a lot of people in one building. It’s going to be 4 stories high and completely curved. Mr. Jobs says that every single piece of glass used for this building is curved. He mentioned that they are using their experience from building Retail Stores to build this new campus. Apple is going to turn the area from 20% landscape to 80% landscape. The are currently has 3,700 trees and they are going to make that 6,000. They are going to have an underground parking under the main building and a parking structure as well. Apple will have their own Auditorium so they don’t have to go to San Francisco every time they are going to have a presentation. Also Apple will have an Energy Center to create their own energy. Usually companies will get their energy from the grid and have an energy center for backup but Apple is doing the opposite the grid is their backup. Next to the Auditorium will be a Fitness Center and an R&D Facility.

I thinks Apple’s design idea is great. But you know what would’ve been better? If they made it in the shape of an Apple Symbol And make it big enough to view from Space. Also it’s inspiring to see Mr. Jobs passions for Apple. Even though he is on Sick Leave and he could’ve easily asked anybody else to give the presentation, he him self went to give the Presentation.
