New Footage Shows Demolition On Apple 2 Campus Site [Video]

Screen_Shot_2014-03-25_at_09

A new high quality video was posted online Monday — showing the demolition of a building on the site of Apple’s forthcoming Campus 2.

The video was uploaded to YouTube by an anonymous user under the name Apple Internal. It depicts the destruction of a building along Ridgeview Ct., one of the main arteries running through the 100-acre plot of land Apple will use to build its new 2.8 million square-foot “spaceship” headquarters.

The site previously belonged to Hewlett-Packard. Apple was granted permission to demolish existing structures back in November of last year, which is most likely when this video was shot.

The Apple 2 campus is set to be completed in 2016 — featuring an underground theater, Transit Center, parking garage, visitors center, pavilion and much more.  It will house around 12,000 Apple employees.

Images showing how it will look when it is completed can be seen here.

Update: Apple have asked YouTube to remove the video as the result of a copyright claim. The video was reportedly created by Apple and circulated within the company before being leaked.

    It seems as though Hewlett-Packard is collapsing the same way its former site did.
