The Cupertino City Council unanimously approved Apple’s Campus 2 — otherwise known as the spaceship campus. The vote was held last night after the Council opened up the floor to hear arguments for and against the building of Apple’s new HQ.
This vote of approval isn’t quite the last step to getting it built. There’s always a chance that someone could petition the Council to reconsider its decision, but that would need to be done within the next ten days. If that doesn’t happen, Apple can begin demolishing existing structures on the site. Then on November 19th there will be one final public reading of the agreement between Apple and the City of Cupertino. If there are no last minute, dramatic oppositions, Apple’s full building permits will go into effect the next day.
Apple CEO Tim Cook issued a Tweet about the approval.
