The San Francisco Chronicle issued a document today stating that Dan Whisenhunt, the key person behind the huge park building Apple Park, has retired from Apple. He has worked for Apple real estate development projects for more than a decade and served as vice president of the department before retiring. People have speculated that now that Apple Park is finally completed, Apple’s real estate projects should come to an end, so he will choose to retire. However, the latest news shows that Apple has a small “Apple Park” to repair!
Let's get to know Dan Whisenhunt. Although Apple owns or leases a lot of real estate in the United States and around the world, all of Whisenhunt's energy in the past few years has been focused on the construction of Apple Park. For example, the City Council of Cupertino provided updates on the status of Apple Park construction, as well as the demonstration of park models to the public and related departments. He has always helped the public understand Apple's construction plans.
Even in the last days before retiring, he was still busy writing reports for employees crashing into glass walls in Apple Park. When Apple officially changed the contact information of the company, it means that the construction of Apple Park has been completed. It also means that the best time for Whisenhunt to retire has come.
Although there is no indication that he has retired, the City Council of Cupertino has already received this news. After he retire, Kristina Raspe, the current senior director of real estate development at Apple, will take over from him.
However, the footsteps of the Apple Construction Company Park will not stop there. The completion of Apple Park is not a break. According to a number of foreign media reports, Apple has already determined that it will build a second large park. It was previously reported that the park may be located in California. Or Texas, but now, New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC in the northeastern United States are all likely locations for the new campus.
Apple had promised to contribute 350 billion U.S. dollars to the U.S. economy within the next five years. This park is one of them. The main reason for choosing the Northeast region is that it has the most complete transportation network in the United States. It also has a large number of US suppliers and Apple can benefit from it. As for the final location, Apple may announce it later this year.
