On May 18, 2019, the grand opening of Apple's headquarters took place in Cupertino, California, which was named Apple Park.
The technical opening of the corporate headquarters took place in April 2017. The event with the participation of world-famous stars honored the memory of the founder of the corporation, Steve Jobs.
“We have gathered together today, in the house you envisioned for us, and have glorified your spirit. We love you Steve," Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted.
The Apple headquarters building in Cupertino is located on an area of more than 260 thousand square meters and unites more than 12 thousand employees of the company. The festive stage, set in the middle of the building, was decorated with a multi-colored arch in the form of a huge rainbow, referring to the former company logo.
The 25,000-piece Apple Stage Arch was designed by Apple chief designer Jony Ive. In the future, the rainbow may be used on other Apple events. Other elements in the exterior and interior of the building are also decorated in iridescent colors.
In the coming years, Apple also plans to open new offices in Seattle, San Diego, New York, Boston, Pittsburgh and other US cities. By 2023, the corporation plans to create about 20,000 new jobs in the US market.
