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.

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.
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
Is it just me or does that photo of the former HP campus look kind of like the inside of an iDevice :)
You prefer the asphalt and boxes it is replacing? The HP campus went right up to the streets on every side.
Even the concept of "building a fence" is sort of amusing.
