Besides the massive fruit orchard, solar arrays, and other cutting-edge sustainable characteristics of Apple’s 176-acre future home, we now know there will also be over 1,000 bikes available for employees to use.

In a new interview, designer Norman Foster says the late Steve Jobs was interested in recapturing the way Cupertino used to look when orchards and green space were the dominating feature and not freeways and car parks.

“The car would visually be banished, and tarmac would be replaced by greenery, and car parks by jogging and bicycle trails,” says Foster.


Currently, more than 6,000 trees are planned for the new site – including an orchard of 243 apple trees and 160 plum trees in the middle of the new circular HQ.

“And of course you have the benefit of jogging and cycling trails—more than a thousand bikes will be kept on the site—and also pathways and landscaping connections,” adds Foster. “There’s also the buried car park. You won’t look out of your window and see row after row of parked cars.”

The new campus, currently under construction, is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.
