First Apple Park Drone Video of 2018 Captures Footage of Courtyard and More

Drone videographer Duncan Sinfield has shared the first new Apple Park drone footage of 2018 on YouTube today. The three minute video includes shots of Apple Park's large central courtyard, employee fitness center and basketball courts, the Steve Jobs Theater, and more.

The first part of Sinfield's new video focuses on the landscaping within Apple Park's courtyard, which is still being finished up in the new year. Greenery now covers most of the space and surrounds the main water feature, which is complete. Landscaping has been a major part of the last few Apple Park drone videos -- most recently in one shared by Matthew Roberts last month -- with most of the large equipment moved off of the campus since the majority of construction is now complete.


In the new video, you can also briefly see the Steve Jobs Theater and Apple Park Visitor Center. The main atrium is captured, as well as the outside dining terrace where employees can sit and eat lunch. One of the areas where construction remains ongoing is the piece of land between the Steve Jobs Theater and the main spaceship building, where some vehicles and equipment remain inside of a red fence.

Although small pieces of construction and landscaping remain, employees have already moved into Apple Park and the Visitor Center opened to the public last November. Next month will mark one year since Apple officially named the campus "Apple Park," at the time explaining that it would take more than six months to move its planned 12,000 employees to the site.

and then a giant earthquake happens.
Well the building is supposedly designed to withstand earthquakes due to how the foundation was constructed (allowing it to move slightly in any direction). But I hope that is never tested by nature.

Where's the golf course, the croquet and polo fields?

You can tell a lot of thought was put in to building that place. No wonder they charge you an arm and a leg for a phone, they had to pay for this.
