The Apple Campus 2 will cover 2.8 million square feet and will stand at four storeys tall. The cost of the building, along with council tax -- which Apple was "happy to keep paying" -- will cost billions. But at over $500 a share, Apple is worth around $465bn, and has over $80 billion in its cash reserves, so it can easily afford it. In January, Apple posted net income of $13.06 billion for the fourth quarter, doubling (and more) its profits from the year before.
