“A year and a half ago, Apple received approval to build an ‘auto testing center’ in the town of Sunnyvale, Calif., and the city manager even highlighted the project in a biweekly blog, though no one seemed to notice at the time,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“On the topic of community development, the top two projects singled out by the city manager’s office were both Apple-related. One touted the fact that Apple was moving into an office space previously occupied by Maxim Integrated,” Hughes reports. “Sunnyvale officials also noted that Apple was awarded a building permit for another, nearby facility with 9,600 square feet of office space. ‘The building will be used as a testing facility for new electronic technologies that are integrated into high-end cars,’ the city manager explained.”
Hughes reports, “Further details are available in public records viewed by AppleInsider, where it’s revealed Apple received permits to build an ‘auto testing center’ on the property the very next month, in July of 2014. Other additions at the building include a lobby, conference room and break room.”
