Aerial Photograph Shows Substantial Demolition Progress at Apple Campus 2 Site




Work at Apple's Campus 2 is well underway with most of the existing buildings now demolished and parking lot pavement removed, as shown in a recent aerial photograph (via MacGeneration) from Ron Cervi, a news and traffic reporter for KCBS. Demolition on the site began in November after Apple received unanimous approval for the project from the Cupertino City Council.

Earlier photographs from a street level view revealed the first stages of demolition back in December, with partially demolished buildings visible from a nearby highway. Several sidewalks were closed, while bulldozers and other heavy equipment started clearing debris from the 176-acre parcel.

Apple's Campus 2 is a short distance away from the company's current headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California. Eighty percent of the barren landscape shown above will be vegetated with over 4,500 trees in an endeavor that will "bring California back to Cupertino." The remaining 20 percent of the landscape will be dominated by a circular, 4-story building designed to hold 13,000 employees. The project has a target completion date of 2016.

Can't wait to see the new campus. Apple treats its campus like a product. It even received a Steve Jobs introduction.

I can't quite make it out, but it looks like the new Campus will be running on the current A7 series...

As an Apple shareholder, I say, since we don't cut corners on the products lets not start by cutting corners on this landmark office complex. With all the money in the bank what's another Billion to do it as Steve envisioned it.

I think that the heavy investment in the Arizona Sapphire plant may give us a clue here.

What are the odds on finding this was an ancient village or burial ground.

Glass factories aren't very secretive. Giant curved glass walls being built someplace?

Not much as the history of this lot goes back over a century of constructions. Before this, it was one of the better HP development campuses. Originally it was an orchard and cannery going all the way back to the mid-19th century. This is not virgin land.

Wasn't there a historic barn of some sort in the middle of that property that they were supposed to preserve? Was it moved somewhere?
