Apple watchers are getting a closer look at the company’s plans for a new spaceship-like headquarters.
The city of Cupertino, Calif., has released new images of what the complex will look like. The 2.8 million-square-foot four-story circular structure will resemble a spaceship more than a building with huge walls of glass that let workers look out from both sides of the ring onto park-like landscaping.
Dubbed Apple Campus 2, the headquarters will accommodate up to 13,000 employees and contain a 1,000-seat auditorium, 300,000 square feet of research facilities and underground parking.
By moving vehicles underground, 80 percent of the 150-acre property will be landscaped with 6,000 trees under the direction of a Stanford arborist who will help restore some of the indigenous plant life to the property, including apricot orchards. Apple also plans to build its own “energy center” power source that will run mostly off the grid.
Groundbreaking for the new headquarters is planned for next year with completion scheduled for 2015. Architects Foster + Partners are working with ARUP North America and Kier & Wright, a local engineering firm that has worked on Apple’s current campus, reports International Business Times.
Apple founder Steve Jobs, who proposed the project to the Cupertino City Council in June, said Appleplans to keep its existing headquarters building at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino.

EKP-250 PG2 do not buy this product Two-way keypad especially designed to work with the hidden PowerMaster-33 G2 panel, and also works with PowerMaster-10 G2 and PowerMaster-30 G2 Don't buy this keypad Hear is my own personal experience of installing the power-master system with remote keypad KP-250 PG2 in my home and how Visonic have dealt with the situation when things have gone wrong. I have been installing alarm systems in the domestic market for over 20 years. About 6 years ago I started installing Visonic wireless systems as I found these systems to be the most stable wireless intruder alarm system on the market for domestic and light commercial installations. The reasons why I have installed power-master 30 in my home, was because I had a lot of renovation work and had to remove my old Galaxy16 alarm system which left me to make a choice of a wired or a wireless system, so the power-master 30 was the best wireless system for me, so I thought MY SYSTEM I HAVE IN MY HOME:
