Apple leases former Pepsi bottling plant in Sunnyvale

Apple has leased nearly 100,000 square feet of warehouse space in Sunnyvale, the city a short distance from the company's headquarters in Cupertino.

According to Silicon Valley Business Journal, Apple signed the lease last November. The space was formerly a Pepsi bottling plant until some point in 2013, and has been left vacant ever since. This is the tenth major real estate acquisition the company has made in Sunnyvale since early 2015, in addition to others in nearby Santa Clara, Fremont and San Jose to the south. Apple is also expected to open its new Campus 2 in Cupertino (pictured above during construction) at some point this year.

It's unclear what the former bottling plant will be used for, but the Journal notes that Apple has been picking up considerable warehouse space in recent years, reportedly for its unannounced car project.
