Construction Of New Apple HQ Hits A Snag

Could be delayed by as much as two years

Apple will be unable to meet its admittedly ambitious goal of breaking ground on its new corporate campus this year. Instead, it will likely not be until 2014 when construction begins on the company's futuristic headquarters, thanks to delays in the requisite paperwork and logistics process.

The new headquarters has been described as being like a spaceship, and it was first conceived and presented by the late Steve Jobs. He presented the plan to the Cupertino, California City Council in June 2011, just four months before his death.

While no cataclysmic changes will be made to Jobs's original plan, there will be some alterations. The company is still trying to get its environmental impact report put together.

Now, Apple wants to try to get the project completed without needing to truck out any dirt. It also changed the location of a 1,000-seat auditorium so that it is farther away from one of the nearby streets than in Jobs's original vision.

Interestingly enough, Apple has gone to the trouble to calculate that it will be able to plant 7,000 new trees throughout the campus, something that will likely please the liberal city of Cupertino.

The most significant part of the plan involves the construction of a 2.8 million square foot building, which will act as the main iconic building for the company.

The new campus will employ as many as 14,200 people.
