We heard as far back as April that Apple was planning to build construction mockups for its new “Spaceship” Campus 2 building, but today we’ve found some clear shots of the site showing a model Apple has recently constructed of the building’s exterior. The image above on the left comes from Reddit and was apparently snapped in a parking lot at Tantau Avenue, between Pruneridge and Vallco, just blocks from the site of Apple’s new campus. We also get a better look at the building in the image on the right from a recent report by BizJournals.
In case there was any doubt that this is indeed a mock up of Apple’s new campus, BizJournals also points to a submitted proposal for the 9,000 square foot demo building:
Not much of the curved appearance you see in drawings of Apple’s new campus is visible since the building mock up accounts for such a small section of the massive structure, and it also only depicts one story of Apple’s planned 4-story Campus 2. Apple said in submitted proposals for permits that it will use the building “to test construction methods, tolerances and the visual appearance of precast concrete elements.”
