A new report claims Apple has agreed to a lease on a new seven building campus in Sunnyvale, CA. The move will further expand Apple’s presence in Sunnyvale, where it already employs 1,300 employees.
The San Jose Mercury News, citing inside sources, and city documents, reports Apple’s purported agreement involves Sunnyvale Crossing, a 290,000-square-foot complex that real estate firm Lane Partners purchased and subsequently renovated into prime office space.
The city planning documents that the News had access to show building permit applications for interior improvements for all seven buildings in the complex, with Apple listed as the tenant in one 69,000-square-foot structure. The News’ sources say Apple will be taking over all seven of the buildings, which can support an estimated 1,450 employees.
While Apple continues to expand its operations in its “hometown” of Cupertino, CA – the company is currently building its gigantic “Spaceship” Campus 2 headquarters in that city – it has also been expanding its operations beyond Cupertino, already having a presence in Sunnyvale, while currently in the process of building a six-story campus in Santa Clara that will house 1,200 workers.
