If that 2016 opening date for Apple's new "spaceship" campus was starting to sound a little overambitious, take heart. Judging from a new photo posted to Twitter by KCBS news and traffic reporter Ron Cervi (via MacRumors), the new home base of Apple is quickly starting to take shape.
Much of it remains a pile of dirt, but now there's evidence of what Cervi calls "underground tunnels" appearing on the outskirts of the main building. The foundations of the main buildings also seem to be assuming their final outlines, allowing us a glimpse of how the final project will look once surrounded by Cupertino.
Once completed, the campus will allegedly be one of the most energy-efficient complexes of its kind. The site will include the massive well-known ring-shaped main building, along with a 100,000 square-foot fitness center, an underground parking facility, and a 120,000 square-foot auditorium.
Cervi's snapshots certainly afford us a better view of the project than what you'll find at ground level. A tall, green privacy fence obstructs the view of construction from street, and Pruneridge Avenue (which bisects the campus) hasn't been open for a month. If the photo's any indication, it's going to be a while before the Cupertino locals can use it again.
