Apple has reportedly inked a deal to build a massive second spaceship-like campus in Silicon Valley.
The 18-acre Central & Wolfe campus—so named because of the roads that border it in Sunnyvale—contains 770,000 square feet of potential office space. Though the deal has not been confirmed, the Silicon Valley Business Journal reports the transaction has been completed. It’s likely Apple has leased, not purchased, the property, and it’s still unclear when construction will begin.
Apple is also in the middle of constructing a futuristic 2.8-million-square-foot campus adjacent to its current headquarters in Cupertino. Designed to house 13,000 employees, the campus will be anchored by a four-story circular structure with extensive glass panes—hence the spaceship nickname. The notoriously secretive company also plans to build a visitors’ center with an observation deck and retail store.
Below are the renderings of the proposed Sunnyvale campus. It borrows the curvaceous elements of the Cupertino design, with three six-story wings centered around a courtyard.
