Progress on Apple Campus 2 Continues as Walls Go Up

Construction at Apple's Spaceship campus continues, with the circular building beginning to take shape according to an image posted to Twitter by KCBS news and traffic reporter Ron Cervi (via 9to5Mac).

In the most recent shot, a wall has been built around the perimeter of the building, outlining where the foundation will be poured. A different tweet by @DawnMortensen notes that Pruneridge Avenue, a road that runs through the campus itself, has been permanently closed.

Street-level photographs back in December revealed several buildings still standing, but another aerial photo from February suggested a large portion of the demolition work had been completed. During construction, Apple has closed off sidewalks and built a large green privacy fence to keep the area hidden.

Campus 2

Cervi has been posting a number of images of the campus over the past few months, tracking the progress of construction. Campus 2 is expected to open in 2016.

wow those homes are so close. I'd be kinda bent about that.
Their property value gonna jump. Lots of rich techies would love to be able to walk to the office.
It's going to be a huge greenspace, park like, and open. Will be some light retail, cafe, etc.

Just a mess during construction. I'd gladly tough it out.

Wow those 'tiny' trucks really give you a sense of scale of the whole thing. I hope we get some decent photos of the inside and out when it's completed, since I'm never going to be able to go in person haha!

This has probably been posted before...

The new Apple campus looks not too dissimilar to the GCHQ ( Government Communications headquarters) building here in the UK. Although it does seem just a tad bigger :-p

You prefer the asphalt and boxes it is replacing? The HP campus went right up to the streets on every side.

Is it just me or does that photo of the former HP campus look kind of like the inside of an iDevice :)

I'm going to venture a guess in that the contractor didn't do all that themselves. They probably subcontracted that job out to a company that rents out fences, and that company's employees put those fences up.

</sarcasm>

No reason to nitpick that type of statement.
The way it read, I had visions of Apple employees in their black t-shirts and name tags building construction fences and setting up sidewalk barriers.

Even the concept of "building a fence" is sort of amusing.
