Video: Apple’s $5 Billion Apple Park Is Nearly Finished

Apple is almost complete with its second headquarters in Cupertino, California, and a new video released by videography Matthew Roberts shows the progress Apple has made since the last video update.

The video shows Apple putting the finishing touches on the main office building, which has been nicknamed the “spaceship” due to its spacecraft design. It also shows workers focusing on the landscaping inside the center of the spaceship and around the campus.

While Apple has kept many parts of the campus off-limits, the company did open the doors to its Steve Jobs Theater last month to announce its latest devices such as the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the Apple Watch Series 3.

It’s unclear when Apple’s $5 billion headquarters will be completely finished. Employees started moving into the campus in April, and the landscaping was expected to be complete by the end of June, but the estimated date for completing the landscaping is a few months overdue.

Apple Park ‘Nearly Complete’ as Construction Begins on Basketball Courts and Other Employee Amenities

Apple Park is officially nearing completion as 2017 winds down, according to a new drone video that has captured footage of the company's campus. Shared by Matthew Roberts, the video comes nearly one month after an update in late September showed off Apple Park at sunset, and almost one year after "major landscaping changes" appeared around the campus.

Now, according to Roberts, Apple Park is "nearly complete," with fewer pieces of construction equipment dotting the site. Landscaping remains a focus for the remaining work, and paths are being paved throughout the campus to connect buildings and areas of Apple Park for its employees. In terms of complete buildings, the new video showcases the finalized Visitor's Center, which members of the media got to visit during the iPhone X event in September.

Roberts' drone video also shared progress made on the sporting areas at Apple Park that the company has built for workers to unwind, including an outdoor spot for basketball and tennis courts currently in the middle of construction. Elsewhere on the campus, there's also a 100,000 square foot fitness center for employees to work out in.

Although Apple Park isn't yet officially finished with construction, some workers have already moved in to offices on the campus, and Apple hosted its iPhone X event at the Steve Jobs Theater last month. Once it is finally completed and all employees are moved in, Apple Park will house 12,000 workers across its 2.8 million square foot campus.

New Drone Video Captures Footage of Apple Park and Steve Jobs Theater at Sunset

Although employees moved into Apple Park earlier in the spring, it has been reported that it will take until the end of the year for construction to be completed. Since that date is now fast approaching, a new drone video by Matthew Roberts has shared some aerial footage of the progress Apple has made since the last update earlier in September.

The video provides a few clear shots inside of the main spaceship building at Apple Park during sunset, where the tree-lined atrium welcomes employees, as well as some views inside the Steve Jobs Theater. Apple introduced the iPhone X there on September 12, inviting employees and members of the media to watch the event inside the underground auditorium and then get hands-on with the new smartphone as the event ended.

The new drone video even includes a quick glimpse directly down through the roof of Apple Park's main building, thanks to a series of glass panels sitting between the solar panels that line the top of the structure. It's unclear exactly when Apple expects to finally be done with construction on the campus. In today's video there are still multiple construction crews and pieces of equipment sitting outside of the central building.

Roberts' video also includes a few shots of the Visitor's Center and the underground tunnel that funnels traffic through the campus. Once everything is completed Apple Park will house around 12,000 employees, and include 9,000 trees, a large pond, walking trails, benches, and a fitness center for workers.
