Look at the evolution of Apple Park and Cupertino

Apple’s current headquarters, dubbed Apple Park, opened to employees exactly two years ago, and the impact its had on the surrounding Cupertino, California area is indisputable.

Apple’s campus, which cost over $5 billion to construct, contributed almost $30 million directly to Cupertino, and has helped increase the property value of Cupertino more than $1.7 billion from 2015 to 2016.

Apple Park houses seven cafes, a wellness center, two large research and development facilities, as well as a 1,000 seat auditorium where the company regularly hosts press events.

The company recently announced a foray of services at their March 25 press event, which was held in the auditorium.

Below is a timelapse of Apple Park’s construction, as well as the surrounding Cupertino area and its growth throughout the past decades. Note that while the timelapse does not feature a completed Apple Park, it allows for an understanding of the sheer scale of the campus, and how the city has grown around it.
