Cupertino's city council approved the building yesterday:
Apple's proposed new spaceship-shaped headquarters got a super-charged blast-off
Tuesday night when the Cupertino City Council voted unanimously to approve the
2.8-million-square-foot behemoth beside Interstate 280, fulfilling a dream of
co-founder Steve Jobs , hatching an iconic landmark for Silicon Valley, and promising
more congestion in an already traffic-challenged region for decades to come.
A standing-room only crowd packed the chambers in the hour before the meeting,
with several hundred Apple employees filling up much of the room, some of them
holding bright green posters with one reading "Cupertino for Apple Campus 2.''
