Apple's Future HQ Just Got Final Approval

新华网北京11月21日电据美国科技博客网站Gizmodo报道,筹划已久的苹果“闪耀”的新总部大楼,看上去既像太空飞船,又像苹果超现实的未来商店。现在,苹果公司终于获得了加州库珀蒂诺当局的许可,新大楼要开工了。

早在十月,当局就已经以全票一致通过,如今终获官方认可。库珀蒂诺市政厅的认可意味着苹果公司可以进入正式的开发协议了,11月20日,库克和苹果公司获得了一套完整的建筑许可。库珀蒂诺市长奥林·马弘利激动地宣布:“大胆去做吧,我们非常期待苹果新大楼,开工吧。”

苹果大楼由英国建筑设计师诺曼·福斯特设计,整个苹果总部呈环形,建筑面积达300万平方英尺。环形建筑意在促进合作,一条绵延不尽的长通道连接大楼内部与外部空间。主楼旁边还将有一个楼群,设计研发部将被安置在那里。还将建成一个巨大的地下报告厅,以供新品发布会及举办重大活动使用。哦对了,苹果总部还有9万平方英尺的咖啡厅!

根据最终敲定的协议,苹果公司需要付给库珀蒂诺市的税款将会增加一定数额。增加赋税的方式是,库珀蒂诺市政府将减少每年发给苹果公司的退税金额。

最终协议已敲定,很快将被传达到苹果公司。据悉,苹果将于2016年完成第一阶段的建筑任务。

Apple's Future HQ Just Got Final Approval

Apple's shiny new headquarters—which look part amazing office space, part futuristic Apple store—has been in the planning for years. Now, Apple's received final approval from the City of Cupertino to get started. This building is going to be very real.

A unanimous vote back in October has finally given rise to official approval now. That means that Cupertino City Council will allow Apple to enter into an official Development Agreement, and Cook &Co. will finally receive a full set of building permits on November 20th. Cupertino Mayor Orrin Mahoney enthusiastically explained:

"Go for it. We're eager to see it happen. Go for it."

The campus revolves around a massive circular building of nearly three million square feet. Designed by British architect Norman Foster, the space is designed to promote collaboration, but connecting interior and exterior spaces through a long, continuous corridor. A separate cluster of buildings set off from the main building will house research and development, and there's also a massive underground auditorium that will be home to product launches and major events. Oh, and don't forget about the cafeteria; it's 90,000 square feet.

As part of the final agreement, Apple will up the amount of tax that it pays to the City of Cupertino. That will come in the form of the reduction of the sales tax rebate that the company receives each year from the city. If you've forgotten what the building promises:

All that is now signed, sealed and soon to be delivered. Indeed, Apple plans to finish the first phase of construction by 2016. [Mac Rumors]
