Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer has reportedly sent a brochure to Cupertino neighbors, asking for their feedback on ‘Camps 2’ project since a lot of residents had shown concerns regarding traffic and other environmental impacts of the huge building which according to them, could adversely affect their town.
According to 9to5Mac, the brochure was mailed this week to residents surrounding the new campus that provided information and invited input in a variety of ways.
Here are some of the brochure’s highlights:
- Campus 2, as it is currently called, will not replace the 1 Infinite Loop campus. Instead, it will provide “research facility” office space for an additional 13,000 employees, which is more than 3,000 than 1 Infinite Loop. There is also 300,000 feet of expansion space for future growth.
- Campus 2 will attain LEED certification and will have no manufacturing or heavy industrial activity onsite. Apple has and will continue to take extra steps to reduce auto use by employees. Moreover, the roof of the main building is a huge solar array.
- Campus 2 will not open to the public, so there is no museum or corporate store.
- The “world class” auditorium located at the very southern tip of the new campus will host product launches and corporate events.
- The corporate fitness center/recreation center will be located to the north west of the main circular building in a separate structure.
- Infinite Loop will remain the official corporate HQ, so top executives will likely stay behind.
- Apple intends to break ground as soon as Cupertino approves the changes (scheduled for later this year), with plans to start occupying the space in 2015.
