Ahead of tomorrows wildly-anticipated iPhone event that will see members of the media invited to Apple’s new Apple Park campus for the first time, close-up images of a nearly completed visitor center have surfaced.
According to Apple’s plans for the new headquarters, the Apple Park campus will include a glass-walled structure for visitors, boasting a 2,386-square-foot cafe, 10,114-square-foot gift shop, and rooftop viewing space.
The images were snapped by a Cupertino resident and shared with TheApplePost. According to the photographer, who has yet to be identified, construction crews were working on the building late at night, perhaps suggesting Apple is aiming to have it completed soon.
“Apple Park’s new Visitor Center will be a building located separately from the main campus, at 10700 North Tantau Avenue,” reads the report. “The center will be home to a 10,000 square feet onsite Apple Store that will likely sell Apple merchandise currently found exclusively at Apple’s Company Store in Cupertino. Apple Park will run on 100% renewable energy and be home to the world’s largest panels of curved glass that are being installed to the 2.8 million-square-foot main building.”
The visitor’s center appears to include the same wooden tables that are found in Apple Stores, plus an accessory wall at the back, which makes sense as it will serve as both an Apple Store and an area for visitor’s to stop by when coming to the Apple Park campus.
At this point is it still unclear when Apple plans to officially open the visitor’s center on the campus, but seeing that it looks nearly complete, the company could perhaps open it tomorrow alongside the Steve Jobs Theater where Apple’s iPhone event will be held.
