Apple has long been associated with Cupertino, but over the next 15 years the company's future looks to be shifting to San Jose. Yes, Apple is about to finish up its Norman Foster-designed spaceship campus back in Cupertino, but yesterday the San Jose City Council unanimously approved plans for up to 4.15 million square feet of Apple office space in North San Jose. The space is about 10 miles away from Apple's headquarters.
Apple employees could begin to move to San Jose as early as July, according to SFGate. The plans are a big win for San Jose, with property tax revenue pouring into the city's coffers. The jobs are rumored to be related to research and development and could possibly be part of plans to build a car, although Apple has not confirmed that it is developing automobiles.
