A new video posted today by Matthew Roberts, who has provided monthly updates on Apple Campus 2 throughout 2016, looks back at the past six months of construction progress that's been made on the site. Starting in July and going all the way up to the most recent update earlier in December, the video provides a neat context for just how much work has been put into Apple Campus 2 over the past few months.

Some of the biggest visual changes made since July include the landscaping and greenery of the campus, which was all but absent as construction was focused on finishing the central "Spaceship" building and the surrounding research facilities at that time. Landscaping began appearing around the campus in August, as the large dirt pile used for various outdoor projects on the site started dwindling down.


Otherwise, progress on Apple Campus 2 has been steady, as the finishing touches began appearing on the main building and the lights came on in September, and the Spaceship's atrium received its glass installation in November.

Construction was originally predicted to be completed by the end of 2016, but it's unclear whether or not that's still a feasible end date, and is more likely to stretch into the new year. Employees will begin moving in towards the beginning of 2017 following the completion of construction on the main buildings, but landscaping progress will continue to be made throughout next year.

Well time has lapsed in the video, but this is not a traditional time-lapse video. More like a "time's a changin'" video.
[doublepost=1481897505][/doublepost]Would love to see the time-lapse video of the retina MacBook Pro from 2012 till 2016. That one kinda would go backwards in time, with the 2012 model actually having more features.

That's not a time-lapse video. Pedantry notwithstanding.

That's one impressive mountain of dirt. They've come so far on it. I remember when it was just a hill of dirt. Now a mountain? Can't innovate, my ass.

The engineering of this building is incredible. If I recall correctly, the glass on the building is curved and was imported from Germany.

Wherever my feet take me…
You didn't see the giant name/email address at the end of the video?

My bad. I usually don't watch the whole video. Besides, I usually watch these things while doing other things so I'm. a distracted. Still, I wonder how he got permission to do this. Apple has had a history of wanting to keep secret.

It's an office building... in the middle of a city. There's no really much to keep secret. Afaik, as long as the quad pilot doesn't interfere with the construction, there's nothing Apple can do. They don't own the airspace. Besides, what's to be kept secret regarding the building construction? What they do inside with products once it's done is an entirely different matter.

Yeah well I guess I was too quick attributing the video to Apple - regardless, it's not a "timelapse".
You don't say..

Just wondering what that huge research center is for?? They don't do anything with the iPad Mini or iPad Air, same with Mac Pro and MacBook Air. iPods will be discontinued, Apple Displays already discontinued, Airport and TimeCapsule rumoured to be discontinued. :confused:

Don't underestimate the huge amount of research that goes into each product cancellation decision.:rolleyes:
