Apple Pitches Flag on HP's Land, Making Them the Largest Landholder in Cupertino

After 20 years of using the 98-acre land in Cupertino, HP's given it up and moved down the road to Palo Alto. As Apple's lived next door since 2006, it was only natural for them to snap it up.

Apple now occupies 57 buildings in Cupertino, making them the largest landholder in the city according to their Public Relations representative Steve Dowling, who says "our campus is bursting at the seams." Rather than let some other two-bit computer manufacturer move into the hood, he says that "these offices will give us more space for our employees as we continue to grow."

Combining the two plots of land—the first purchased back in 2006, and the second being this ex-HP ground, makes the campus much larger than their Infinite Loop, which is just six buildings on a single street in a "U" shape. [AppleInsider]

This is the Pruneridge Rd. site, right? HP only acquired that 20 years ago? I live in the NY area, but I think I've spent a cumulative year on and off at that site over the past 19 years that I've been with HP. It's been a ghost town for the past 3-4 years now, since Unix has gone by the wayside. Hope Apple gets some good use out of it.
