Well I guess the time has come for me to stop calling the Apple digs – the “spaceship.” According to 9-to-5 Mac, it is officially Apple Park now.
New footage from this past week.
Updated footage for April (although it was taken in March) 2017:
How big is Apple’s new campus?
- The new Apple Campus will be set in a 2.8 million-square-foot area.
- That’s a 176-acre site.
- It will house more than 13,000 Apple employees in one building.
- The building is more than a mile around.
- There will be 300,000 square feet of research facilities and underground parking.
- It is expected to be complete in late 2016
- In May 2014, Apple leased 290,000 square feet of new office space in Sunnyvale known as Sunnyvale Crossing. It is thought that this additional space comprises seven buildings and will provide room for around 1,450 workers. It is located near to the new ‘Spaceship’ campus as well as the current ‘Infinite Loop’ campus.
- Despite aiming to be self-sufficient and earth-friendly, the range of materials used in the construction will without a doubt be the top of the line. “As with Apple’s products, Steve Jobs wanted no seam, gap or paintbrush stroke showing; every wall, floor and even ceiling is to be polished to a supernatural smoothness. All of the interior wood was to be harvested from a specific species of maple, and only finer quality ‘heartwood’ at the centre of the trees would be used,” an insider told Business Week.
- As a consequence of the large size of the building, the sections have been broken up with cafes, lobbies and entrances.
- A significant segment of the building is the restaurant, which opens up to the landscape.
- The car park is buried below the landscape so there are no rows of parked cars to spoil the view

New footage shows the campus getting cleaned up from all the mud due to abnormal high amounts of rain. But it is looking cooler and cooler everyday. This footage is from Duncan Sinfield.
Apple Campus 6 month time lapse in 4K
As you know the Apple spaceship is well under way and nearing completion (or so they say).
While it looks amazing and a lot of work has been made there still seems to be a lot of work left to be finished. But I’m here to show the latest footage as it is absolutely amazing. Here is a 6 month comparison from Matthew Roberts.
