Apple's 'Spaceship' campus won't open until 2016, as the project faces delays

Apple's new Spaceship HQ has been delayed, won't open until 2016

Apple's new 'Spaceship' campus was meant to open in 2015, but Apple have reportedly filed a new timetable with the City of Cupertino on November 14, adapting its development timetable. Apple have had delays that affect Cupertino's environmental impact report. This report monitors traffic, noise, air quality levels, and allows local residents to comment on its development.

This has caused Apple to push back the completion of the report from the expected late-2012 date, to June 2013. This could mean that Apple won't start work on the new HQ until 2014, pushing back the move-in date into 2016.

 

The new 'Spaceship' HQ boasts 2.8 million square feet of a research and development building, a 1000-seat corporate auditorium, a fitness center, central plant, parking and another 300,000 square-foot research facility. Apple hopes that the new campus will maximize efficiency and convenience to their employees, where it will provide a co-location of services and a consolidation of employees in a single distinctive office R&D building.

 

Apple also hopes to generate their own electricity needs on-site, which will reduce their reliance on outside power resources.
