This new facility complements the One Infinite Loop location which Apple has outgrown. Apple Campus II has officially been named Apple Park. The main structure has been nicknamed the Spaceship due to its resemblance to a flying saucer. Although it’s not intended to leave the ground it should be the birthplace of exciting new technology from Apple in years to come. The new Apple Park is nearing completion and marks a significant expansion of Apple related real estate in Cupertino, California.
Mathew Roberts has been diligent with his monthly video productions of aerial flyover videos of Apple Park. He has been using a DJI Phantom Professional Drone and the 4K footage is magnificent. We can thank Matthew for showing us this monumental construction project month after month as it took shape.
The latest video from May 2017 shows the solar panels are in. The below ground parking is already being used. The Tantau Avenue parking garage appears to be completed. The R&D facility already has office tables and chairs. Work continues on auxiliary buildings around the property.
Heavy construction equipment is still at the site. The plan was to move in this April. But that can’t happen until it’s inspected and blessed by the Fire Marshall. And that’s not likely to happen until it is finished. However, with multiple structures, it will likely be an incremental process. It will take months to completely move 12,000 employees into the new facility.
The 1000 seat auditorium, named “Steve Jobs Theatre” should be ready sometime this summer. It will host future Apple events. The circular pond is going through final preparation. The landscaping is coming along nicely with many trees being added. Staircases have been installed at the base of the main building.
Home of Innovations
This ambitious project is finally coming to fruition. It’s 175 acres will be the home of exciting innovations in the coming years. Congratulations Apple, and BTW, I’d love an invitation to the house warming party.
