First announced by Steve Jobs in 2006, Apple kicked off construction on its new 176-acre “Campus 2” in late 2013 and expects to move in around 12,000 of its employees when the project is complete in early 2017. The campus located approximately one mile east of its current headquarters in Cupertino, California is also often referred to as the Apple “Spaceship” due to the appearance of the site’s main circular building.

Apple currently plans to wrap up construction by late 2016, and CEO Tim Cook confirmed earlier this year that the company is still on track to move into the new 2.8 million sq ft location by early next year. Apple is also expected to host future press events and product unveilings at its new Apple Theatre auditorium located on the campus.
