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 Inc. and the city of San Jose are working toward a development agreement that would allow the Cupertino-based juggernaut to build a north San Jose campus of up to 4.15 million square feet, according to city records — an amount larger than Apple’s “spaceship” campus under construction in Cupertino.”

Throughout 2015 Apple has bought and leased a number of properties that could house the gigantic new campus. A 296,000 square-foot building was purchased by the company in May. Shortly after the company signed a lease for a 43-acre development site, as well as another 202,000 square-foot office building nearby.

The development agreement isn’t an actual project, nor are there any guarantees that the space will get built into a satellite campus for the iPhone-maker. A formal development proposal still has not been submitted by Apple, so it’s still anyone’s guess as to what the space will be used for.
