When construction is completed, the complex will cover a staggering 3 million square feet, and will house a 120,000 sq. ft. auditorium, where Apple’s yearly events will be hosted. Campus 2 has also been specifically designed to be environment – friendly, with over 70% of its energy being supplied by solar and fuel cells.

The campus will employ over 12,000 employees, and the first phase of construction is expected to be completed by 2016.
