Drone flyover video shows Apple campus coming along nicely


Close encounters of the Apple campus kind: the company's new HQ as it will look on completion.

More than a year after Apple broke ground on its futuristic “spaceship” Apple Campus 2, we have another progress report courtesy of a new drone flyover video from Myithz.

As you can see from the video (which looks absolutely stunning on a 5K iMac, thanks to its high resolution), the forthcoming Apple headquarters is really starting to take shape now, as building continues on the $5 billion campus.

Check it out after the jump:

Earthwork is reportedly set to continue until the middle of this year, while overall construction on the project will be completed by late 2016.

Not only will the facility be home to an astonishing 13,000 Apple employees (the equivalent of 35 fully-filled Boeing 747s if that makes it easier to imagine), it will also be environmentally friendly, thanks to Apple’s use of alternative energy sources as part of its pledge to use 100 percent renewable energy for all of its facilities.

Recently it was revealed that the campus will also boast a $75 million gym for employees (not least fitness-obsessed Tim Cook), plus a 1,000-seat underground theater where Apple will hold the majority of its media events.
