New aerial photo shows Apple’s ‘spaceship’ campus taking shape

Apple’s new ‘spaceship’ Campus 2 building was first proposed back in 2011, but building a 2.8 million square-foot collection of buildings as your new headquarters takes some time. Today, the city of Cupertino published a new aerial image of the site to show progress.

As you can see from the image below, while the site’s spaceship-like ring shape is starting to take form, anything resembling the main building is pretty much still absent.


According to a timeline posted by the city, building work only started in Q2 of this year and is due to continue through until the end of Q4 in 2016, although it’s possible that the campus will open before all the buildings are fully completed.
