Apple's brisk Bay Area expansion continues with new Santa Clara office

Just months after the opening of Apple Park in Cupertino, Apple has continued to add new office facilities, the latest being a lease about ten miles away in Santa Clara

Apple's two planned facilities in Santa Clara



According to the San Jose Mercury News, which cited the Santa Clara County Recorder's Office, Apple has leased a 62,000-square-foot building at the corner of Bowers and Walsh avenues in Santa Clara. The property, described by the newspaper as a "four-decade-old industrial building," is less than a mile away from a pair of buildings, at Kifer Road and Uranium Drive, that Apple announced plans to renovate last August.

The Mercury News story added that "extensive construction" is currently underway at the Bowers location.

Apple was also said at the time to be renovating a 105,000-square-foot building "just blocks away." Apple has nearly completed another big campus, in Sunnyvale, while also building a large facility in San Jose.

It's unclear exactly what purpose the new buildings will serve for Apple. As AppleInsider reported in 2015, "Project Titan," a past electric car initiative, was also based in Sunnyvale, which is near Santa Clara.

In addition to its California buildings, Apple is in the midst of choosing another new campus, with the Research Triangle in North Carolina said to be in the lead, pending legislation.
