Apple’s still-unnamed “spaceship” campus won’t be completed until the end of this year, but it’s looking less and less like Tim Cook’s beautiful pile of dirt and more like a finished HQ every single day — as drone operator Matthew Roberts’ latest flyover video makes abundantly clear.

Check out the action below:

As is evident from the video, by this stage of construction things are really coming together. The Apple headquarter’s enormous glass canopy and enclosure is now virtually complete, while external buildings such as the R&D center, maintenance shed, $70 million fitness center and auditorium lobby are all approaching the finish line.

Even smaller details like the solar panels being installed on the roof to make the campus sustainable and eco-friendly, and the paving of the parking garage are being done — suggesting that it won’t be long until Cook and the rest of the gang are able to move in.

Time to start packing your desk on 1 Infinite Loop, everyone?
