WATCH | Apple's new campus is huge and gorgeous. And now it has an official name.
Mixing the future with the past
Apple has been developing and constructing its 175-acre Cupertino, Calif., future headquarters for about five years now. Wednesday, the company announced an official name for the campus, Apple Park, and that its 12,000 employees will move into its curved glass building this April.
But a part of the new solar-powered, spaceship-looking HQ will be a familiar-sounding place for Apple to unveil products: The Steve Jobs Theater, named after the company co-founder and iPhone creator.
"The campus’ ring-shaped, 2.8 million-square-foot main building is clad entirely in the world’s largest panels of curved glass," Apple wrote in a blog about the newly minted Apple Park.
You won't have to work for Apple to visit
But Apple Park won't be all business: The campus will also have an Apple store and a cafe, though Apple hasn't said whether those amenities will also open in April.
Construction of Apple Park and its 2.8 million square foot space building will continue through the summer. And the Steve Jobs Theater will hold its first event "later this year" -- perhaps in time for the unveiling of the 10th anniversary iPhone.
