Say hi to Park
Ever since July 2011, when Steve Jobs presented to the Cupertino City Council the plans for the new Apple campus, the world has waited for the day for the new campus to be ready. Today, Apple announced that it will be ready and open for employees to start using from April – and the new campus will also be called Apple Park.
The theatre that sits at the highest point of the campus, which when ready will be where Tim Cook does his keynote address, is aptly named Steve Jobs Theater.
“Steve’s vision for Apple stretched far beyond his time with us. He intended Apple Park to be the home of innovation for generations to come,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The workspaces and parklands are designed to inspire our team as well as benefit the environment. We’ve achieved one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the world and the campus will run entirely on renewable energy.”
In two days time, it would have been Steve Jobs’ 62nd birthday. The opening of Apple Park, six years after he unveiled its plans, would have been a wonderful birthday present for him.
