The official Apple Park campus should open its doors to employees later this month, but if you can’t wait for Apple to take the wraps off its shiny new spaceship, the Minecraft replica is now complete.

We got our first look at the Minecraft version of Apple Park earlier this month and were blown away by the amount of detail creator Alex Westlund threw in. Now after 413 hours of work, you can fly through Apple’s new campus and gawk at the last Apple product Steve Jobs unveiled.

Apple Park in detail

Westlund began working on his Apple Park replica back in December 2015. Everything is 100% accurate down to the placement of individual cherry trees.

The map was created using the blue prints of Apple Park that were submitted to the city of Cupertino. Even the landscape is accurate thanks to some official topographical maps Westland found of Cupertino.

All of the general areas are fully furnished in the replica, but the office space (which makes up most of the campus) hasn’t been filled in because Apple hasn’t let anyone know how that will really look.

To put the entire map to scale, on Minecraft block equals 1 cubic meter, Apple Park occupies 620,000 square meters, or 153 acres. You can view the full map over at Planet Minecraft.
