Apple purchases former HP campus in Cupertino

Apple has confirmed the purchase of a 98-acre site near its existing headquarters in Cupertino, CA. The site has served as a longtime campus for rival tech company Hewlett-Packard, and sits across the street from a 50-acre site that Apple acquired in 2006 and had previously announced as the location for a planned second campus. “We now occupy 57 buildings in Cupertino and our campus is bursting at the seams,” Apple spokesman Steve Dowling told the San Jose Mercury News. “These offices will give us more space for our employees as we continue to grow.” Apple and HP declined to give the sale price or any specifics of the transaction, although local real estate experts suggest the asking price may have been $300 million or more.

I’ve been trying to find this out, but have been unsuccessful.  Does anyone know if this was the former Tandem Computers campus that HP acquired after they purchased Compaq after Compaq bought Tandem?  Just curious.  My dad worked for Tandem during the 80’s at the Cupertino campus.

I think the Tandem site you’re thinking of was between Vallco Pkwy and I-280, which was already purchased by Apple back in 2006. This new acquisition by Apple was an HP site for as long as I can remember.

@rockmyplimsoul Thanks for that. I have never lived out there so I wasn’t sure.  Only visited that campus once back in ‘87.
