Video: It’s been years in the making, and now, it’s almost complete. Apple first started working on its brand new offices — officially dubbed Apple Campus 2 — back in 2006, when Steve Jobs announced to the Cupertino City Council that Apple was buying a huge swath of land 1.6km east of the company’s existing facilities. After hitting some delays, construction on the campus began in 2014.
Now, in a new video filmed by drone pilot Duncan Sinfield, we can see just how incredible the new building looks. Filmed with a DJI Inspire 1, the aerial video captures Apple Campus 2 in all of its glory. The filmmaker even added some cool annotations to point out things like the glowing facade, underground auditorium and even the R&D compound, where Apple’s top secret labs will be housed.
Apple said it expects to complete construction by the end of this year, and hopes employees will begin using the facility in 2017. For now, we can all enjoy this beautiful footage of the campus exterior.
