Steve Job’s Mega Mothership Apple HQ Is Bigger Than Pentagon [Pic]



This is the size of Steve Jobs’ new Apple spaceship campus — compared to the massive Pentagon building. You can imagine the scale of the complex Steve Jobs is planning to build.

The Pentagon building, btw, is the world’s largest office building (by floor size). It houses about 26,000 people. Steve Jobs’ new HQ will house 13,000 — but it’s parkland in the middle. We imagine it’ll have similar security though.

Thanks Se Mo!

    Yeah, is it just me, or does it look like a giant iPod click-wheel? 

  • site7000

    More like a walled garden :-P

    Pentagon was my first though. But what I was wondering what happens if you are on one side of the building and have a meeting on the other side, it is a long walk. Wonder if there will be walkways underground.

    Clearly the drive into work every morning seeing the “One Infinite Loop” sign has gotten to Mr.Jobs. VERY COOL regardless :)

    Crazy. I made the same comparison earlier today between the two buildings:

    There will probably be indoor monorail trains, running continously around the building.

    A contact has informed me that a duplicate building will be built on a remote Japanese island (just in case).

    The new futuristic campus for
    Apple is a welcome sign! A 6000 trees in the campus is something that has to
    appreciated. A 150 acres land would have surely would have deforested but,
    making sure the trees are not wiped deserves applauds.

    I was thinking the same thing! That would be crazy awesome.

    the apple is everywhere *beady eyes*

    So Apple is moving to Farpoint Station, hope it’s mate isn’t around..

    S.R. Hadden:
    First rule in corporate spending: why build one when you can have two
    at twice the price? Only, this one can be kept secret. Controlled by
    Americans, built by the Japanese subcontractors. Who, also, happen to
    be, recently acquired, wholly-owned subsidiaries…

    Not sure this is a good comparison.  What you’re saying is that the perimeter of the new Apple campus is bigger than the pentagons, however, volume wise, the Pentagon is much larger.

  • Bob Whipple

    It must have been very tempting to put a little indentation in one edge of the building… with a curved wing jutting out adjacent to it… the perfect Apple!

    I am not sure about the security, its going to be simple and clean! I don’t think Steve Jobs will spend so much money just on security!

    Its his city after all!

  • obamapacman

    You didn’t compare it visually.
    Also, you are not the first one to think of it.

    They moved form infinite loop to an infinite loop.

  • nthnm

    I thought the same thing. Yet another title that’s slightly misleading. Apple’s HQ is bigger than the Pentagon…but will house half as many employees because the square footage is much less.
