  • Apple Updates Cupertino "Neighbors" on Build Progress for Campus 2 Construction


    Apple has been sending out letters to residents who live in and around the area of the company’s Campus 2 in Cupertino. They are updating the residents on build progress including on-site construction, roadwork, and utilities with construction beginning in April. The progress report lets nearby residents know what to expect from the site in the upcoming weeks.

    The company has stated that they are planning to start earthwork on the Campus 2 site along with ongoing utilities and roadwork construction in April. Dan Whisenhunt, Apple’s senior director of real estate and development, touches upon a website set up in partnering with the City of Cupertino that has current and upcoming events that will affect road traffic in the note.

    The letter dated March 27, 2014 from Apple states:

    Dear Neighbor:

    I wanted to update you on construction activities for Apple Campus 2. We are now wrapping up demolition of the old buildings on site as well as public utility relocation and roadway construction along Tantau Avenue and Homestead Road. We ran into some unforeseen underground conditions the delayed the utility relocation process, however we expect this work to be completed in the next few weeks.

    I also wanted to let you know that, as Homestead and Tantau are reopened, Pruneridge Avenue will then be closed. We currently anticipate the Pruneridge closure by mid April, but it may be as early as April 4th if the weather holds. Please continue to monitor construction signage in the area for the specific day Homestead and Tantau will re-open Pruneridge and will close.

    We expect additional work on portions of Tantau and Homestead in April and will continue public utility work on Wolf eRoad through the spring and early summer of this year. Once the utility work in the public streets is complete we expect less construction disruption as the vast majority of work will be directly on the project site. We are planning to commence earthwork and construction activity on site in April and currently anticipate occupancy in late 2016.

    The City of Cupertino has established the Apple Campus 2 Construction Update webpage at www.cupertino.org/appleconstruction. The webpage provides information on vehicular, bike and pedestrian routes lane closure, construction timelines for various activities and other information. The website is updated each Friday so you can visit the website to learn about upcoming construction work.

    As always please feel free to contact us if you should have questions or concerns.
    Final approval was given to Apple on the Campus 2 plans in November of 2013, even though Steve Jobs revealed it in 2011. Dubbed the “spaceship” by some because of the large circular main structure, it will hold about 12,000 employees with other buildings for presentation and meeting space.

      "conditions the delayed "

      This brief letter has grammatical issues? Can't Apple afford to hire someone who can proofread copy?
