Apple's 1,000-seat auditorium at its new 'spaceship' campus in Cupertino, California is expected to cost $161 million. The auditorium has been in Apple's plans since the beginning, but it had subsequently modified the proposed location for the venue away from an existing road in late 2012.
The $160,999,985 cost for the auditorium was uncovered by BuildZoom in Apple's permit application, along with construction costs for a $71 million gym. The new auditorium could potentially host Apple's future product launches and allow the secretive iPhone-maker even greater control over its special events and keynotes.
BNBT Builders, Inc. is contracted for work on the auditorium.
