Apple’s $5 billion campus opens β€” here’s what it looked like [1 month before opening]

Apple’s biggest launch in 2017 isn’t a new iPhone or iPad.

It’s a new campus in Cupertino, California, that looks like a spaceship and reportedly cost over $5 billion to build. The project was one of the last that Steve Jobs was involved with.

Apple named the campus “Apple Park” in February and said it would open in April for employees. There will also be an Apple Store on the premises and a visitors center for non-employees, although the opening date for the public hasn’t been announced yet.

“The main building, parking structure, theatre, and fitness center are under construction,” said a progress report delivered to the Cupertino City Council on March 7. “Occupancy for main building will begin in April and phased to end of 2017. Phase 2 and ancillary building expected to be completed by 2018.”

Our latest look at Apple’s “spaceship” headquarters comes from Matthew Roberts, a drone pilot and photographer who has been making Apple Park videos for years.

Take a look:

Apple Park is right on Interstate 280, but a military-grade fence shields it from the noise and intruders.

The building is nearly complete, but there’s still some landscaping work to be done.

The roof is covered with solar panels …

Some of the secondary buildings already have furniture in them.
