Grand Apple Park Will Be Open for Company’s Employees Starting April – Can You Guess the Name of the Theater?
If you’re an employee working at Apple and want to isolate yourself to a brilliantly designed and spacious park, then your dreams will come true starting from the month of April because the new Apple Park will officially be open for employees.
Apple Park Will Also Be Adding a New Theater and It Will Be Named After Steve Jobs
Apple Park is expected to be a one of its kind, and it will be able to house more than 12,000 individuals, as detailed below:
“Apple today announced that Apple Park, the company’s new 175-acre campus, will be ready for employees to begin occupying in April. The process of moving more than 12,000 people will take over six months, and construction of the buildings and parklands is scheduled to continue through the summer.
Envisioned by Steve Jobs as a center for creativity and collaboration, Apple Park is transforming miles of asphalt sprawl into a haven of green space in the heart of the Santa Clara Valley. The campus’ ring-shaped, 2.8 million-square-foot main building is clad entirely in the world’s largest panels of curved glass.”
The construction of smaller buildings coupled with landscaping will continue during the summer period but the theater that’s also being added is a welcome addition to the Apple Park. Naming it after Steve Jobs is the highest tribute an individual could deserve owing the level of dedication he delivered to the company.
“Steve would have turned 62 this Friday, February 24. To honor his memory and his enduring influence on Apple and the world, the theater at Apple Park will be named the Steve Jobs Theater. Opening later this year, the entrance to the 1,000-seat auditorium is a 20-foot-tall glass cylinder, 165 feet in diameter, supporting a metallic carbon-fiber roof. The Steve Jobs Theater is situated atop a hill — one of the highest points within Apple Park — overlooking meadows and the main building.”
The Apple Park was originally expected to be completed in late 2016 but construction delays eventually led to the park’s completion date being pushed.
