First announced by Steve Jobs in 2006, Apple kicked off construction on its new 176-acre “Campus 2” in late 2013/early 2014 and expects to move in around 12,000 of its employees when the project is complete. Apple currently plans to wrap up construction by late 2016, so it’s possible the company could move into the new 2.8 million sq ft location starting sometime in early 2017. expand full story

Apple shares updated aerial image showing Campus 2 construction progress
Just after sharing our latest drone flyover video of Apple’s under construction “Campus 2” in Cupertino this weekend (this time in 4K), Apple today shared an updated aerial shot of the campus.
The shot shows early progress being made on the structure of the main building and other buildings on the campus as well as earthwork and greenery on the surrounding property.
The City of Cupertino’s website, which tracks construction and traffic updates related to the Campus 2 project for locals hasn’t changed the project schedule that still calls for building construction to wrap up by the end of 2016.
Apple has recently opened a number of smaller satellite offices in Sweden, Seattle, and Cambridge, England, but it expects its new 176 acre Cupertino campus to hold around 12,000 of its employees when construction is complete.
Check out the latest drone flyover video of the Campus 2 site (in 4K!) from over the weekend.

It appears that most of the foundation is laid now in an update from a video taken by a drone two weeks ago.
Apple CEO Tim Cook has called Apple’s Campus 2 the ‘Greenest in the World’. The controversial structure which will house 12,000 staff in 2.8M square feet on 176 acres and is estimated to be completed in 2016. Interestingly, even though Apple is covering the construction site with a high green wall, it is updating the 3D flyover of the location in Apple Maps somewhat frequently. The latest looks like it was taken earlier this summer.
An official updated aerial shot from Apple was also posted on the City of Cupertino’s website:
