Apple's Tim Cook Tweets Approval for New Apple Campus

In a tweet early on October 16, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that the Cupertino city council had given unanimous approval the night before for Apple's new campus.

The circular design of the new campus has been topic of considerable discussion and has been compared to a spaceship. The design, on a 176 acre campus, will be able to accomodate 13,000 employees, have 300,000 square feet of R&D facilities, and include a 1000 seat auditorium. But no computer museum.

Recently, the San Jose Mercury News posted some stunning new architectural renderings of the new campus.

The "Apple Campus 2" is expected to cost US$5 billion and be finished in 2016. (That's before cost and schedule overruns.)
