Apple’s $5 billion campus opens next month — here’s what it looks like now

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

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

Apple named the campus “Apple Park” in February and said it will open in April for employees. There will also be an Apple store on the premises and a visitor’s center for non-Apple 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,” a progress report delivered to the Cupertino City Council on March 7 read. “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:
