Bloomberg reports that Apple's ambitious Spaceship-like campus will likely be delayed until 2016. The project was originally revealed back in June and was presented to the Cupertino city council by Steve Jobs himself.
Apple Inc. (AAPL) said the construction of a new spaceship-like headquarters with a circular design in Cupertino, California, won’t be completed until mid-2016, later than originally projected, as the company revises its plans.
The new campus was originally targeted for completion by 2015, but November filing made city approval unlikely by the originally planned dates.

Bloomberg reports the new plans show no major changes to the original campus plans, but does include some additional parking, more landscaped area and other small changes. The main four-story building remains the same circular shape as shown above.

... and "back in June" of 2011.


I've noticed a lot of basic editorial mistakes like this recently.

Which is why MacRumors should hire guys like us to catch these errors. What are these positions called again.... Oh yeah, proofreaders! :D


Anyway, I was hoping to take a ride on this mothership. Sucks that we have to wait another year. :(

The empire will have crumbled by then by its own ambition and mistreatment to employees.


That you, Michael Dell?

Wow, they can't do anything on time anymore.


you're implying that apple does the construction documents, hires consultants, contractors, workers and is responsible for the completion date all while being exempt from any municipal procedure that can delay the multiple-year long process unintentionally. please

regarding apple not doing anything on time anymore, while there may be some truth to that, i think it's fairer to say that we're more aware given we try to squeeze any bit of information we can about them and their projects - rumours especially

I'm curious to know how the members of the Cupertino city council sat quietly during a presentation from a ghost.
