Brazil’s Jundiai city council has paid tribute to Apple’s late co-founder and former CEO by naming one of its streets Steve Jobs Avenue. The council actually announced that it would commemorate Steve with a street a day after his passing last year, but city officials only confirmed the name this week.
Brazilian blog MacMagazine.br has published the official documents confirming the move, which were signed by Mayor Michael Haddad on March 27. Steve Jobs Avenue includes Goiás Avenue Road and the Anhanguera Highway region.
The small city of Jundiai is located near São Paulo, where Foxconn — Apple’s assembler — has just opened a new manufacturing facility that will produce the iPhone. It is hoped that the plant will reduce the cost of Apple devices in Brazil, where popular products like the iPhone and the iPad have previously been inflated by the country’s very high import tax.
Foxconn is believed to be planning five Brazilian factories altogether, all of which will focus on Apple’s products.
