4.17 billion dollars. The figure has to give the dizzy, but it gives a good overview of the working conditions of Apple employees. With construction completed in 2017, we already knew that the Apple Park, the headquarters of the brand was not in the economy. But a new study conducted by the tax services of the city of Santa Clara poses now a figure on the local oversize of the firm of Cupertino. Including the area occupied by the campus, buildings, furniture and equipment computing, the Apple Park culminates, therefore, almost a 4.20 billion, a budget let’s face it, rather a result, since it is higher than the GDP of some countries, such as Guyana (3,62 billion) or the Cayman Islands (3,21 billion).

Despite this estimate is colossal, the Apple Park is still far behind the buildings the most expensive in the world, such as the Great mosque of Mecca, valued at $ 100 billion. In spite of everything, the HQ of the brand to apple now stands in front of the One World Trade Center, and its $ 3.5 billion. Designed by Steve Jobs, Jony Ive and the architectural firm Foster and Partners, the huge campus of 260 000 m2 must pay annually for the bagatelle of $ 56 million in taxes, which places it at the first place of the taxpayers ‘ property in the county over the year 2017-2018.
