Apple Already Planning Third Corporate Campus



apple campus

Despite the fact the Apple is still only planning to build its new corporate campus on Cupertino, California, it seems that the company has already realized that it won’t be enough for 13,000-employees and is likely to begin planning on a third campus, said  Cupertino mayor Gilbert Wong.

And just like a new gadget, the company may not be done upgrading. Wong said Apple executives have told him the company is expanding so fast that it expects to start working on Apple Campus 3 at an unknown location after they finish the second headquarters in 2015. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on plans for a third campus.

Now Apple reportedly requests 13 separate approvals from the city in connection with the second campus. The company hopes to collect all necessary documents by late 2012. That schedule would see construction begin on the new 2.8 million square foot circular main building in 2013, with an opening targeted for 2015. The campus will include 25,000 square foot fitness center, 1,000 seat auditorium, a parking garage, an energy center, research and development buildings.

As the table above shows, Apple is nearly two times better than its closest competitor Tiffany & Co, and nearly five times better than its closest technology related competitor GameStop. It is impressive that Apple managed to become the best having much less experience ( ten years) than most of its competitors included in the survey.

fifth_avenue

The New York Post is reporting that Apple is expanding its New York Office space. Apple has signed a lease for 45,000 square feet of space in a Fifth Avenue office building in New York City near Union Square. As reported, this larger space will be used for iAd team and new business projects.

Apple already leased a 10,000 square-foot chunk of the Kaufman building back in January for the iAd group, and now it is taking a bigger chunk of the building for its first executive office in NYC.

Apple will use the space to launch new business projects. The office will look and feel like the retail stores with an all-white lobby, sleek elevators and LED lights.

Apple Opening A New Data Center in Silicon Valley



apple-newark

Apple is planning to open a new data center in Silicon Valley in the third quarter of 2011 to provide “additional IT capacity” to Apple’s rumored new cloud services that include music, video, storage, and more. The new space is located in Santa Clara, California, and it’s smaller than the massive data center Apple has been building in Maiden, North Carolina, throughout 2010 and 2011.

Apple is expanding its Internet infrastructure with a new data center in Silicon Valley, as it prepares to bring additional server and storage capacity online later this year. The new server space, housed in a third-party facility, will be smaller than the huge iDataCenter that Apple has built in North Carolina.

Apple’s first Russian store to open near Kremlin by late 2011



hotel_moskva_now

It seems that Apple is planning to open its first Apple Store in the Russian Federation late 2011 or early 2012. IfoAppleStore.com claims that Apple’s top retail brass flew to Moscow to negotiate a lease in the reconstructed Hotel Moskva (see pictures bellow) that locates close to  Red Square, the Kremlin and other landmarks in the city.

Senior vice president of retail Ron Johnson and vice president of real estate Bob Bridger visited Moscow at the end of March and toured the three-level retail space in the future Four Seasons Hotel. The two were seen examining a 16,000 square-foot, two-level space as a possible Apple store. At the time, no lease had been signed, but a decision could be made soon, sources say.

Apple may be planning to build the second data center in North Carolina



DataCenters-Flickr

According to a new report from All Things Digital, two new photos were revealed on the Flickr page of the Catawba County that show two renderings of Apple's site in Maiden, North Carolina - one of them is an existing facility and another one, which is labeled as "Phase 2", has two seemingly identical buildings.  It leads to an idea that Apple may have been planning to build another data center, but it remains unknown why the company still hasn't reported anything on such plans.

Rumors on the second Apple's data center site aroused last week when All Things Digital cited some anonymous sources and reported that Apple was examining the suggestion to double its operations in Maiden to 500,000 square-feet. As you may know, the data center in North Carolina is almost five times larger than Apple's current data center situated in Newark, California. It was also announced to be "fully operational" by Data Center Knowledge last Sunday, and Apple revealed it will be opened "any day now".
