Mercury News has reported that Apple is renting thousands of square-feet for its employees near Cupertino in Sunnyvale, California. According to the reports from Colliers International, Apple is ready to move into the 215,000-square-foot Sunnyvale Research Center.
Located 7 miles from the company’s current headquarters in Cupertino, the four-building complex in Sunnyvale is not the only nearby location that Apple is renovating. Two more buildings in Sunnyvale will help temporarily house up to 1,300 corporate employees.
“Apple seems to be gobbling up everything they can,” said Chad Leiker, a vice president with Kidder Mathews, a realty firm. “They are taking a ton of space.”
The report says that Apple wants to lease between 700,000 to 800,000 square-feet in Sunnyvale. Such area would allow room for between 2,800 to 3,200 employees.
This is not the first time Apple has rented space close to home.The incredible growth of Apple Inc due success of gadgets like iPhone 4S is visible and due to this growth, room for 1,300 more employees had to be made next to the main campus on 1 Infinite Loop last summer.
Apple is also working on its new ‘mothership’ campus in Cupertino to accommodate 13,000 employees. The company hopes to move into the new building by 2015.
