Apple's Santa Clara Campus Construction Begins

Company mecca will house 1,200+ employees

Apple's enormous new corporate campus in its heartquartered city of Cupertino is in the middle of a series of delays, pushing back its estimated start of construction well beyond its original plan for the end of this year. But work on a second facility in California is now underway.

The Santa Clara campus will house more than 1200 employees and will be nearly 300,000 square feet in area. The first stage is the construction of two tall buildings, and those are the projects that officially broke ground this week.

The first building will be finished by 2014, and it will be the bigger of the two. The second building will be almost one-half the size of the bigger one.

Both will be about six stories tall, so the difference in size will come with how much land mass they take up.

With more than half of the new campus set to be ready in a little over a year, new employees will be flocking to Santa Clara about two years before anyone moves into the new Cupertino headquarters.

The latter, known as the "Spaceship" project, is set to be finished in 2016, despite original estimates pegging a completion date of sometime in 2015.

It's unclear exactly what kind of employees will occupy the Santa Clara space, although it's only about a 20-minute drive from there to Cupertino so it will likely be treated as some sort of extension of the company's main campus.
