A giant building that looks like a UFO is set to be Apple’s new headquarters if the local Cupertino Council in the USA gives the 8 million square metre building their approval.

New renderings released by Apple’s local Council reveal the  spaceship-like office and research and development building which looks like a gleaming UFO just landed on planet Earth.

Local web site Tech Flash said that the local Council posted a number of new documents containing further details about the spaceship-like “Apple Campus 2,” including floor and site plans. Apple  hopes to break ground next year on the proposed 175-acre campus, to be built at a former Hewlett-Packard site.


The main, 2.8-million-square-foot circular “spaceship” building will be four stories tall, with two basement levels of parking and a 58,050-square-foot restaurant on the first floor, according to the plans. In addition to the main building, the documents also show two additional round buildings that will house a 1,000-seat corporate auditorium and a two-story, 25,000-square-foot fitness center. A four-level parking garage adjacent to the freeway will provide 4,300 parking spaces, in addition to the approximately 4,600 spaces underneath the main building.

The company hopes to house 12,000 employees at the new campus by 2015.

“It’s clear that we need a new campus,” CEO Steve Jobs told the Cupertino City Council when he first presented the plans in June. “We’re just out of space. It doesn’t mean we won’t need the one we’ve got. We do need it but we need another to augment that.”

The project still has to go through environmental review, development review and public hearings with Cupertino’s planning commission and city council, but so far it has been enthusiastically received by city officials.
