A new aerial photo from KCBS news and traffic reporter Ron Cervi shows that construction on Apple’s new ‘Spaceship” Campus 2 is moving along nicely, with all of the buildings on the site having been demolished.
The area where the circular-shaped building will be constructed is cleared out, allowing us a glimpse at where the campus itself will be located. Apple has moved quickly with this project, having first begun working on the project just a few months ago after receiving unanimous approval for the project in November.
While street-level photos in December showed several buildings still standing, an aerial shot from February showed a large part of the demolition work was completed.
Apple Campus 2 is located near the company’s existing headquarters, and the first phase of construction at the new site will include the striking 2.8 million square foot main building that will sport an underground parking garage capable of holding 2,400 cars.
Construction will also include a 100,000 square foot fitness center and a 120,000 square foot auditorium. A second phase of construction will see an additional 600,000 square feet worth of office, research, and development buildings.
Apple hopes to complete the first phase of the project by 2016.
