Apple Campus 2 to boast $161M auditorium, $74M fitness facility

Newly unearthed building permits discovered this week reveal a bit more about Apple's plans for its Campus 2 facility, with the company earmarking $161 million for an auditorium and $74 million for an employee gym.




As noted by BuildZoom, Apple will pay $160,999,985 on a theater to be installed on the company's Campus 2 compound currently under construction in Cupertino, Calif.

The auditorium was previously detailed in project plans as being a massive 120,000-square-foot underground "assembly space" with seating for 1,000, a large lobby, restrooms and back-of-the-house facilities including a catering kitchen. Visitors will be served by 350 parking stalls in the above-grade North Tantau parking structure.

Also found in publicly available permits are plans for a $74 million gym facility, revealed in project revisions to be a 100,000-square-foot building located to the northwest of Campus 2's main "spaceship" structure. It will feature a number of amenities, including changing rooms, showers, laundry, gym equipment, multi-purpose rooms for group sessions.

Apple's $5 billion Campus 2 was pitched to the Cupertino City Council by late cofounder Steve Jobs in 2011, noting that the enormous main structure would house 12,000 employees. The build is well underway and CEO Tim Cook expects to move in by 2016.
