Apple is reportedly expanding its operations in San Francisco. The company is said to have rented 76,000 square feet of office space in the South of Market (SoMa) area. It's unknown at this time what Apple may use the office space for. The space that Apple is said to be renting can apparently accommodate several hundred employees.

From San Francisco Business Times:

The SoMa building – on Second Street between Howard and Folsom Streets – has been marketing a two-floor sublease through 2022 from tenant CBS Interactive. The space, which has been marketed for seven months, could hold between 400 and 500 employees, based on industry standards for employee-per-square-foot.

This would really be Apple's first major push into San Francisco. However, it should be noted that Beats, which Apple acquired last year, already has offices in the city, a 26,000-square foot space in the Dogpatch neighborhood.
