Much has been written about Apple's forthcoming "Campus 2" project in Cupertino, California, but before that spaceship-style structure can be built, construction crews will have to clear out the former HP campus.
MacRumors reported Thursday that demolition is already well underway at the former Hewlett-Packard campus Apple purchased back in 2006 with the intention of building a stylish new "Campus 2" in its place.
After receiving the proper permits to begin construction from the Cupertino City Council back in October, Apple wasted no time starting to level the existing buildings, which are in clear view of the nearest highway.
"Apple has also constructed a large wall around the construction area to avoid impacting nearby businesses and residents," the report notes. "Large bulldozers and other equipment are within the campus area, clearing debris, and several sidewalk areas have been closed."
Phase One of the Campus 2 project will be home to the 2.8 million square foot "spaceship" building that has attracted so much media attention in recent months, which Apple hopes to complete by 2016.
