Apple has leased two additional buildings near its Cupertino headquarters, according to the Silicon Valley Business Journal. The two leases give Apple roughly 69,000 square feet of additional space and highlight Apple’s need to complete its massive new “spaceship” headquarters.

On October 1, Apple secured a lease to 5425 Stevens Creek Boulevard in Santa Clara, a 57,479 square foot facility that formerly housed LiveOps, a call center outsourcing firm.
The company followed that move on October 31 by heading just down the road and leasing 20401 Stevens Creek Boulevard in Cupertino, an 11,552 square foot two-story office building that formerly hosted Roamware, a mobile services company.
Apple is currently awaiting the construction of its striking new Cupertino campus, first announced last summer. The 300,000 square foot facility is scheduled to begin construction in mid–2013 and will be completed in 2015. Until then, Apple continues to seek occasional leases like the ones above to accommodate its growing workforce and logistical needs.
Worldwide, including all corporate and retail locations, Apple owned or leased a total of 17.3 million square feet as of the third quarter.
