STEVE JOB PRESENTS APPLE'S NEW HIGH TECH CAMPUS

Apple CEO Steve Jobs made an unannounced visit to the June 7 City Council meeting in Cupertino, home of the computer giant, to reveal plans for a new, state-of-the-art Apple headquarters, reports the Cupertino Courier.

The stunning design resembles a "spaceship;" it will be four stories and house 12,000.

"I think we do have a shot at building the best office building in the world," says Jobs, who also made a rare appearance earlier in the week at the Worldwide Developers Conference.

The current Apple campus has some 2,800 employees, with the rest disbursed in rented buildings throughout the city. The new base will sit on 150 acres near Pruneridge Avenue and Wolfe Road currently home to Hewlett-Packard, which will be relocating next year. The circular building will be an architectural feat and will tout a large inner courtyard.

The grounds will be transformed from primarily asphalt to green. Parking will go underground and the CEO says Apple plans to almost double the 3,700 trees on the property. He wants to add apricot orchards like the ones he recalls growing up with nearby. (more)
