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.
The structure will be supported by large pillars and a steel structure. On the inside of the donut-shaped structure, Apple hopes to include an orchard and a park in the center of the structure.
Cupertino City Council says that it expects to have updated plans available after Thanksgiving, but did not say when.
