Apple just announced the opening of its $5 billion campus to employees starting April, and over the six months that follow, it will be moving it’s over 12,000 employees to the new facility.
Apple calls the ring-shaped facility “Apple Park”, and even though the facility is way behind schedule, the tech giant feels there isn’t a better time to open the facility.
The company revealed that construction work on the main building and the surrounding parkland will be continued over the summer as the park is expected to feature amenities like a visitors center with an Apple store and a café, a 100,000-square-foot fitness center, research and development facilities, running and walking tracks that will cover a massive 2 miles and an orchard, a meadow and a pond.
Apple revealed that a new 1,000-seat auditorium would be named after Steve Jobs who should have turned 62 on Friday if he was alive. The Steve Jobs Theater is expected to open sometime later this year, it sits on a hill that overlooks the rest of the campus and it sports a metallic carbon-fiber roof.
