“Apple recently leased a 96,000-square-foot warehouse in Sunnyvale, Calif., last used by Pepsi as a bottling plant in a move that grows the company’s presence in an area previously tied to work on Project Titan, colloquially known as the ‘Apple Car,'” Mikey Campbell reports for AppleInsider.
“According to a loan document filed with the county clerk’s office and reviewed by the Silicon Valley Business Journal, Apple quietly leased the industrial property in November,” Campbell reports. “It is not clear how long the lease is good for, or what Apple plans to do with the building, but the site is in walking distance of multiple land developments thought to be associated with the company’s secret automotive initiative. ”
“An AppleInsider investigation last year uncovered Apple’s Project Titan campus, a sizable complex of warehouses and neighboring offices recently renovated to accommodate a variety of secretive operations,” Campbell reports. “Most recently, Apple’s Sunnyvale campus was in the news following complaints from neighbors over loud ‘motor noises’ coming out of the facility late at night. ”
