Apple updates plans for new Spaceship campus, places completion in 2016

Apple updates plans for new campus, pushes completion into 2016

If you haven't heard, Apple's building this really cool new campus in the shape of a giant circle. It looks sort of like it's from outer-space and it's gained the name Spaceship, among others. It was first introduced to the public in 2011 by the late Steve Jobs and was originally slated to be completed in 2015.


Today, Apple sent over revised plans to the city of Cupertino. Apple is still waiting on Cupertino to complete an environmental review, so work has yet to begin. In the latest plans, Apple plans to have the new campus built by mid-2016, though they note that "this schedule may be modified to meet Apple's business needs."

The awe-inspiring campus is to be built on 176 acres of land. The circular building features a circumference that comes close to a mile. The new campus will feature a 1,000 person auditorium, where at Apple plans to give product presentations. The updated plans for the building are available here.
