“Earlier this month, a report revealed that Apple’s upcoming ‘spaceship’ campus in Cupertino is both behind schedule and $2 billion over budget,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors. “Apple was said to be looking to cut costs on the project, which is apparent in the revised campus plans that it submitted to the city today.”
“Apple originally planned on constructing a 600,000 square foot area of buildings (known as the Tantau Development) in two phases,” Clover reports. “Phase 1 was to take place alongside the construction of the main Apple campus, while Phase 2 would be delayed until later.”
Clover reports, “Apple Campus 2’s budget rests near $5 billion, which is said to be because Steve Jobs insisted on design quality and expensive construction methods. The Campus, a circular 2,800,000 square foot 4-story building, is designed to hold 12,000 employees and has a prospective completion date of 2016.”
