Drone flyover video reveals latest state of Apple’s new spaceship campus

A new drone video provides the latest glimpse at how Apple’s futuristic “spaceship” campus is coming together, three years after the company broke ground on the impressive HQ.

Rather than just showing us the massive Apple campus as it looks today, YouTuber Matthew Roberts gives us a “year-end” montage, showing progress made since the middle of the year.

The forthcoming (still officially unnamed) campus will house 13,000 Apple employees, the equivalent of 35 fully filled Boeing 747s. It also boasts impressive environmental credentials, a $75 million gym for Tim Cook (and other employees) to kick-start their days, a 1,000-seat underground theater and more.

While I wish Roberts’ video covered more than one-sixth of the construction process — thereby giving a more comprehensive overview of how far the project has come — it’s still an impressive look at a frankly astonishing corporate headquarters. (It should be pointed out that this isn’t actually a time-lapse video, as Roberts describes it, so much as a month-to-month montage.)

What do you think of Apple’s new spaceship HQ? And what, if anything, should Apple call it? Leave your comments below.
