A month ago we reported that Apple is working on building a new cafeteria for employees in Cupertino, CA. The new cafeteria will be a few blocks away from its main headquarters. Apple’s new cafeteria is mainly for workers from Apple’s satellite buildings in the neighborhood.
This new cafeteria will give employees a private location to eat and conduct business without needing to worry about competitors overhearing their conversations. The new cafeteria will as well offer private meeting rooms, lounge areas, courtyard space, and a 70-space parking garage underneath the cafe. It will also have a 1,000 seat corporate auditorium, a fitness center, central plant, parking and new 300,000 square feet research facilities.
The construction site looked like this in April:
A month later it seems that construction workers have already started to build the cafeteria:
The company does allow visitors to eat at Caffe Macs (Apple’s on site restaurant at the main campus) if they are accompanied by an employee. However, this new cafeteria will be exclusively for employees. We’ll post more pictures as more progress occurs.
