Above is a pic of what the new Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. will look like! Totally crazy! The building looks like a spaceship!
Steve Jobs spoke in front of the Cupertino council, asking for a vote to approve the new futuristic new building, which will be four stories high and have an auditorium that will hold about 12,000 people.
When a councilmember asked Jobs how Cupertino residents will benefit from Apple's new campus, Jobs replied:
"Well, as you know we're the largest tax payer in Cupertino and we'd like to continue to stay here and pay taxes. If we can't then we have to go somewhere else like Mountain View and we'll take our current people with us and the city's largest tax base would go a way."
He does have a point! Apple employs thousands of people who Jobs says "ends up being affluent members of the community." This would be an extremely awesome opportunity for the city.
And we'd LOVE to visit that campus one day!
Construction on the building plans to finish by 2015.
