Thanks to MacObserver, we now know how big Apple’s new headquarter actually is. The new headquarter, that looks like a spaceship from outer space has a bigger footprint than the Pentagon building. John Martellero at MacObserver used the recently released drawings of the Apple headquarters and compared it with Pentagon building, big ships, and Empire State building to calculate its size.
Given that comforting sanity check, I measured the diameter of the Apple spaceship as 1615 ft, plus or minus a few ft., depending on where one places the ruler. That’s a radius of 807.5 ft.
Steve Jobs presented the concept to Cupertino City Council about this building two months ago that will feature spaceship like design and will be built on 150 acre of land Apple bought from HP several years ago. Apple plans to deploy 12,000 of its working force in the new campus and hopes that the work on the new campus will be completed by 2015. Steve Jobs called the building a spaceship, and if you see in the picture above, the new campus indeed looks like a spaceship from outer space showing Apple’s futuristic approach just like its products.
