Apple Campus 2 Construction Finishing Up as Glass Installed in Atrium and Landscaping Expands

With just over a month left in 2016, the latest drone video showing the progress on Apple Campus 2 has been shared online, letting fans check out the ongoing creation of Apple's newest campus. Construction on the site continues with progress being made on the glass panels for the atrium of the main building, as well as in the campus' solar panels and landscaping.

Solar panel installation is said to be 60 percent complete in Matthew Roberts' newest drone video (last month it was at 50 percent), and headway has been made on the entry-way atrium of the main spaceship building. This section of the campus has now had glass installed, covering from the floor to the ceiling of the building, and the design of the area is beginning to take shape.


As is the case with these updates, landscaping is also seeing a rapid update. The large dirt mound used to prepare areas of the site for new trees and various fauna is now "nearly gone," with greenery sprouting up all over the campus, including large trees in front of the fitness center. The inside of the spaceship building is still full of construction equipment and work being done on the water feature and landscaping in the central courtyard.

Once construction is completed -- predicted to be by the end of the year, but likely extending into 2017 -- employees will begin to move into the building in early 2017. The grounds and landscape of the campus will see continued work throughout next year, following the completion of the main structures needed for the workers.

Can explain why?
Are you aware of any new product being released?
All I know is that a lot of people are no longer worshiping this company. Innovation and users' experience do not make the cut on Tim's agenda.

Apple is clearly going all in with it's own chips. W1, T1, Custom SSD controllers, etc. How this isn't equated with innovation is beyond me. I know it's not going to play in a commercial, but they're clearly aiming to in-house as much as possible to contribute to the user experience. Early days in a new age of Apple.

They should use the interior theme from star trek. Then, when someone is standing in front of Tim's office he gets the same chime and says "come" and puts down his stack of iPads. Siri could be activated anywhere by saying "computer". And a general alarm sounds whenever someone says "There's a Klingon warship off our port side".


LOL, had to post it. :)

2017 should be a great year for Apple.

That, or "There's an Android phone within our perimeter."

I would guess because they'll be less distracted by making sure everything is perfect with their shiny new campus and more focussed on getting crap done—like updating the rest of the Macs, making the iPad Pro actually Pro, and designing a new iPhone. I've been reading a lot lately about how the organizational structure within Apple, which is built more like a startup, has been having trouble keeping up with the scale of the company. Perhaps this new building will help facilitate more collaboration since it's custom designed with their needs in mind? Furthermore, there could be new labs that will help with rapid prototyping and development of radical new designs and technologies. Moving is always a big distraction, even at work. We moved buildings a couple years ago and it was a headache and productivity took a big hit during the transition. Our new workspace has helped us to become more efficient because we're better located centrally. Everyone on our team can be in one place with a space of our own and areas within that we can use to collaborate on projects and pitch in ideas during the day. However, when it comes to this situation, 2018 is probably a better bet for Apple to get into a groove at the new campus.

Wow, I know it looks like a spaceship - but never thought it had time travel capabilities :)

My brother is an electrician there and he said that their work probably won't be finished up until around March or so.
