City of Cupertino releases official Apple Campus 2 progress photos

08/06, 7:51pm

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.

New photos from KCBS traffic reporter Ron Cervi has revealed further progress on Apple's new Campus 2 structure from the last surveillance, done about three weeks ago.

Builder likely testing materials to be used on final development

A life-size "slice" of the planned exterior of Apple's under-construction Campus 2 has popped up in Gundelfingen, Germany, reports German enthusiast site iFun.de.

Contextual roads, support buildings, previously-unseen fountain among highlights

A new video by 3D mapping firm Technology Integration Services, based on publicly-available information about Apple's forthcoming "spaceship"-shaped Campus 2, has created a 3D video "flyover" of the campus that brings together known and little-featured details to portray the compound as it will look in 2016 when construction is expected to be complete. The video places the campus in context to its surroundings, and shows not just the main office building but the extensive landscaping and support structures.

'Spaceship' design obvious even in earliest phase of construction

KCBS aerial reporter Ron Cervi on Tuesday posted photos of the ongoing construction of Apple's "Campus 2" future headquarters in Cupertino, with the first "foundation" walls being placed and the overall shape of the building already becoming obvious from the air. The area where the main building will be constructed has been cleared following extensive demolition of the former HP campus that happened mostly in February.

Architect of Apple Campus 2 reveals Jobs' influence

03/04, 12:40am

Unusual single building will house 12,000 employees in far less space

One of the most overlooked factors in the spaceship-like ring design of Apple's forthcoming "Campus 2" is that the building is expected to house some 12,000 employees in a single (albeit enormous) structure -- about the same as Hewlett-Packard, the previous occupants of the land, house in more than 26 buildings formerly on the property. Chief Architect Norman Foster has recently revealed more details about the building's origins.

Visitor center, transit buses, private roadways, more

Some of the city of Cupertino's additional images of Apple's proposed (and now approved) Campus 2 project, scheduled to open in 2016, have now appeared online. Rather than just showing off the main "spaceship" hub building of the $5 billion project, the new images showcase some of the details and other structures that will make up the complex, which is shaping up to look more like a small, futuristic city than an innovative office building.

10/11, 9:31pm

'A place for the most creative teams ... to innovate for decades to come'

Apple's Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer may have at first seemed to be an unusual choice for hosting a sneak-peek at a very large 3D architectural model of Apple's forthcoming Campus 2, known already as "the Spaceship" three years before it is even planned to open -- but like his colleagues, Oppenheimer has a gift for selling dreams. Along with Senior Director of Real Estate and Facilities Dan Whisenhunt, the CFO gave reporters a tour of the model ahead of a Cupertino City Council vote.
