Cupertino is most famous for being the headquarters of Apple, Inc. with their modern and unique circular building called Apple Park. The city does not have a true designated downtown area, but is dotted with strip mall areas and business park areas. Most notable of these areas is the construction on the former Vallco Shopping Mall area. The new development will be called Vallco Town Center, and will feature new housing, retail and office spaces, a signature 30-acre elevated park, two town-center plazas, and a vibrant shopping, dining and entertainment district.
