Campus said to be complete by the end of 2016, road closures continue
Following some photos taken earlier this week by KCBS traffic reporter Ron Cervi, the City of Cupertino itself has updated its website with new photos of the progress being made on Apple's "spaceship" Campus 2 project. While not revealing anything any new compared to the Cervi photos, the picture quality is noticeably higher and shows off a wider angle, giving some context of the construction site against the rest of the city.
In addition to the photos, the city has updated its calendar of when specific milestones will be reached in the construction process. The data shows that construction on the campus will continue through to the end of 2016, though this does not mean the main headquarters will not be completed in time for the expected "sometime-in-2016" move-in timeframe. There are many supporting structures and other smaller buildings that will also be constructed, from physical plants to parking garages to a visitor center. Extensive landscaping will also be taking place after initial construction is finished.
Street utility work will continue through to the end of the year, according to the calendar. Demolition may continue into the new year, but is expected to be completed early in the first quarter of 2015. The earthwork, already well under way, is expected to continue until halfway through 2015, largely concurrent with building construction, which will stretch to at least the end of 2016.
The site also provides information, updated weekly, on road closures, traffic re-routes and other occurrences that may impact local residents and drivers in the construction area.
