One building measures 43,000 square feet, the other 30,000 square feet. Apple confirmed the leases, but declined to say who would occupy the new property or for what purpose. The Mercury News says some industry watchers believe the company needs the space because it remains in hiring mode.

“Apple is bursting at the seams,” said Tim Bajarin, principal analyst with Campbell-based Creative Strategies, a market researcher, told the publication.

About three blocks away, from the building renovations, at 127 through 123 Uranium Drive, Apple has leased a 105,000-square-foot building that it’s renovating. In north San Jose, the tech giant has leased a 777,000-square-foot office complex and has leased big office buildings in Santa Clara from Peery Arrillaga that total 296,000 square feet. And, of course, work on the "spaceship campus" continues.
