Apple has been busy scooping up real estate in North San Jose throughout 2015 and now we finally know what they might be doing with all that acreage.

A new Apple campus is reportedly in development, and according to a report from the Silicon Valley Business Journal, it could be a lot bigger than the current spaceship campus that’s scheduled for completion next year.

Apple’s forthcoming $5 billion “spaceship” Apple campus may be designed to squeeze in a massive 13,000 employees, or the equivalent of 35 fully-filled Boeing 747s, but don’t worry: it’s got plenty of space for you, too.

According to Apple’s plans for the new headquarters, the Apple 2 campus will include a glass-walled structure for visitors, boasting a 2,386-square-foot cafe, 10,114-square-foot gift shop, and rooftop viewing space, where visitors can gaze out over Apple’s domain while Tim Cook tells you that everything the light touches is his kingdom.

According to a recent report, Apple’s initial contractors for the project — DPR Construction and Skanska USA — are parting ways with Apple, and will be transitioned off the build over the next several weeks.
