Today we get one of the best looks yet at Apple’s under construction “Campus 2” in Cupertino with a drone flyover video courtesy of Emory Peterson and aerial photography company Above Reno.

The video, shot in 4K over Labor Day weekend earlier this month, gets us up close with Apple’s rapidly progressing Campus 2 project scheduled for completion in late 2016. Above Reno notes the video was “filmed at or below 400 feet above ground level with clearance from the local FAA office.”

Apple last checked in with its own aerial shot of construction progress late last month with an updated image published to the City of Cupertino’s website tracking the project.

In addition to the circular structure at the heart of the new campus, the new location will house 300,000 square foot R&D facilities, a 1,000 seat auditorium, a parking structure and other buildings on the land surrounding the main building. The company plans to move in around 13,000 of its employees with the process wrapping up by early 2017.
