Apple is still on track to move into its new “Campus 2” in Cupertino, California, early next year.

With the move-in date getting closer, construction on the $5 billion “spaceship” building has picked up quite a bit in recent weeks.

On Tuesday, Matthew Roberts posted a fantastic new Campus 2 flyover video, taken with a DJI Phantom 3 drone.

Most of the construction has now been finished, and some buildings are receiving final touches – for example, the underground auditorium now has had its roof installed, and workers are prepping to install the rest of the giant solar panels on the building.

Here’s what to look for in the latest pictures of the building and surrounding campus, which former Apple CEO Steve Jobs once said had a chance to be the “best office building in the world.”


In this screenshot, you can see that Apple has started to install solar panels on its roof. The roof will be nearly completely covered in solar panels when it’s done.

A closer look at the roof. CEO Tim Cook said that the building could be the “greenest on the planet.”

And of course, Apple’s mountain of dirt, which CEO Tim Cook called “beautiful,” is still growing and evolving.
