Drone owner captures new construction, inner and outer retaining walls

Significant progress has been made in the construction of Apple's Campus 2 project since the last set of traffic-reported helicopter pictures were released. A new HD video shot with a GoPro camera attached to a drone plane have flown over the construction site (a legally murky move) and shown detailed images of the outer and inner retaining walls for the future headquarters of the company.

The main building, whose outlines are represented by the ring of an at least 40-foot-tall trench, will cover 2.8 million square feet when completed, expected sometime in 2016. The deepness of the trench has suggested that it might be used for underground tunnels for incoming busses or cars bringing workers in from surrounding areas, as a transportation hub is among the features planned for with the main building.

In addition to the ring-shaped building (the raised area central in the picture will be an open-air park), there will be a separate visitor's center, an underground "town hall" auditorium, an outdoor stage, bike and walking paths, at least one multi-story parking garage and a separate fitness center, along with several ancillary buildings, though most of these facilities will be constructed in the second phase of the project.

    This is one video that is better sans audio.
    Too much time hovering in one spot.
    It looks just like a construction site with a circular building in the center.
