Report: Apple Is Taking Over a Seven-Building Campus in Sunnyvale

Not content with a 2.8 million square-foot flying saucer, Apple is apparently taking over a seven-building campus in Sunnyvale, too.

The San Jose Mercury News claims that Apple has agreed to lease a seven-building campus in Sunnyvale which can house 1,450 workers. The buildings, which provide 290,000-square-feet of office space, are decades old but have recently been renovated "into a state-of-the-art office center."

City records show that Apple is listed as a tenant in one 69,000-square-foot buildings at the campus, and "sources familiar with the property and Apple's plans for the site" claims that it will actually occupy all seven.

Apparently the leases are for 7-to-10-years. That would take Apple beyond the intended completion date of its new campus—the first build stage for which is due to finish in 2016. So while the 20,000-capacity building might house a lot of Apple folks, it clearly still plans to need space elsewhere, too. [San Jose Mercury News]
