The cost of the building, along with council tax -- which Apple was "happy to keep paying" -- will cost billions. Because the glass in the building will not have a single straight edge piece of glass, the curved glass will have to be manufactured specially for the building, and will be curved to accommodate the building's size, shape, and curvy dimensions.
Apple aims to "promote shared creativity and collaboration and spur invention of the next several generations of Apple products," the firm said.
However, the designers of this campus want to "achieve the security and privacy required for the invention of new products by eliminating any public access through the perimeters against trespassers," ruling out any public right to access.
Though the designs have not changed much, there are a few noticeable changes. For instance, Apple no longer wants to use trucks to haul away the soil from the grounds during the campus' construction. The firm also wants the auditorium, used for product launches, to be moved further away from the public roads. Also, the parking structure will be larger to accommodate more employees at the firm.
