Apple’s futuristic new headquarters in Cupertino, CA just cleared another major hurdle. July 22nd marked the end of a 45-day public comment period on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Apple Campus 2. The next step is to incorporate the public comments and responses into the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for submission to the City of Cupertino’s Planning Commission. The FEIR and the Planning Commission’s comments will then be forwarded to the City Council. While no further comments to the DEIR will be accepted, the public will still have a chance to make comments at upcoming meetings of the Planning Commission and City Council. The DEIR attracted 348 public comments. As noted on our parent website (www.constructionscience.com) the original bids were $2B over the $3B budget envisioned by Apple. Assuming the project scope is reduced to stay within budget the Apple Campus 2 will still be one of the largest private projects in state history.
