Apple Campus
The last time somebody outside Apple got a good look at the plans for a new spaceship-esque headquarters in Cupertino, they saw one rendering that hinted at a design for a visitor’s center, but details were scant.

Details revealed that visitors to Apple’s new Cupertino campus will get a ringside view of the action. According to plans the company filed with the City of Cupertino, the mostly glass visitor's center will include a rooftop observation deck, where Apple fans making the Cupertino pilgrimage can gaze upon the rest of Norman Foster’s design.

Now everyone has more intel and it hinted that the center will include a 2,300-square-foot café and a 10,000-square-foot retail space, Cupertino’s first Apple store. According to an aerial shot of construction, it sits a few blocks southeast of the looping building. Apple has not yet responded to any request from the media for comment.

The 2.8-million-square-foot donut-shaped Apple Campus 2 will be one of the most futuristically engineered buildings in the world, with floor-to-ceiling concave glass walls and a park designed by Apple’s own arborist. But until the campus and its visitor center open, everyone will have to be satisfied with surreptitious drone footage.
