The Mercury News is reporting that Apple has acquired 98 acres of land in Cupertino, California.

This acquisition comes four years after Apple purchased 50 acres in 2006. Both plots of land were previously owned by Hewlett Packard, prior to that company moving to consolidate their operations in Palo Alto, California. HP will be moving out of the 98 acre lot over the next two years.

Apple spokesperson Steve Dowling even put out a statement regarding the land grab: “We now occupy 57 buildings in Cupertino and our campus is bursting at the seams. These offices will give us more space for our employees as we continue to grow.”

No word on how much this cost Apple to actually purchase the land.
