We’re hours away from one of Apple’s most important special events in years, so what better time than to check in on the progress the company has made on its forthcoming Campus 2, courtesy of a new drone flyover video.
The video shows the extent to which the futuristic “spaceship” campus is taking shape, with much of the landscaping done. Earthwork is set to continue until the middle of this year, and overall construction is set to be completed by late 2016.
Check out the video below.
The campus will house an astonishing 13,000 Apple employees (think 35 fully filled Boeing 747s to give some context) and will be environmentally friendly, thanks to Apple’s use of alternative energy sources.
The headquarters will also feature a $75 million gym for employees, alongside a 1,000-seat underground theater where Apple will hold the majority of its media events (such as today’s) once the campus is complete.
The above video also includes aerial footage showing Apple’s current One Infinite Loop campus, starting at around the 2:11 mark.
