Culver City-Apple on Friday announced plans for a 500,000-square-foot office facility in Culver City that will serve as the regional headquarters for the tech giant’s local operations, including Apple TV + and Apple Music.
The complex will consist of two buildings connected by a dividing wall, which actually surrounds the National and Venice Boulevard, Calvary City and Los Angeles, adjacent to the Metro Expo line’s Culver City station.
The project is part of a $ 430 billion expansion plan announced by the company in April. At the time, Apple planned to have more than 3,000 employees in Calvary City by 2026.
Apple started working in Calvary City in 2014 and currently has more than 1,500 employees in the area, according to the company.
No timeline has been announced for the completion of the new building.
According to Apple, the facility will “incorporate environmentally sustainable building features and be powered by 100 percent renewable energy.” Company officials noted its proximity to the metro station with various transit lines, adding that Apple would “provide shuttle service for our team, assistance for cyclists and other travel options.”
