At long last, Apple’s new “spaceship” headquarters looks like it’s just about done.

Matthew Roberts offers the latest look at the iPhone maker’s new headquarters with video from a pair of drone flights. The video offer glimpses of Apple’s new campus, dubbed Apple Park, during the day and at sunset.

Although employees started to move to Apple Park in April, the video indicates there’s still a little bit of work to be done, mostly landscaping and other finishing touches.

Apple opened part of its new $5 billion headquarters to the public earlier this month but kept other parts of the campus off-limits. Journalists and analysts attended Apple’s iPhone event at the company’s new Steve Jobs Theater, but they didn’t get a close look at the complex’s main building, a ring one mile in circumference that has been nicknamed the “spaceship.”

Luckily, drone photographers have done a fantastic job of documenting the campus’ six-year construction process and are still posting looks at Apple Park from the sky. Take a look:

From a distance, the “spaceship” certainly does looks like a new Apple gadget.


The design of the “spaceship’s” lobby is also similar to many Apple stores.

Those glass doors are four stories high.

Apple says the whole campus generates 17 megawatts of power.


There are fruit trees at the center of the “spaceship’s” ring.

Eventually there will be a working fountain in the middle.


That’s a lot of trees.

There’s still some landscaping being done.

The campus surrounding the “spaceship” is designed to look like a park.

The campus includes a system of underground tunnels.

The tunnels are supposed to prevent cars from ruining the campus’ pastoral nature.


The “spaceship” isn’t the only building on the Apple Park campus.

The campus also has a gym and other facilities.


Near the “spaceship” is the Steve Jobs Theater.

Apple launched the iPhone X in the theater. Most of its seating is underground.


There’s a crazy glass elevator in there.

Skylights on the roof let natural light into the building.
