The City of Cupertino, together with Apple, have today provided an official update and a new aerial photo of the spaceship-like second campus the iPhone maker is building (via MacRumors).

As previous aerial shots have already shown, Apple is progressing rapidly with the construction; with workers laboring 12 hours a day during weekdays and 9 on weekends. As a result, much of the foundation of the circular main building is completed.

Although the construction is not visible from street level, aerial images reveal that heavy construction equipment is indeed present on the site.

Since the construction is ongoing it is affecting the traffic, causing lane closures from 9 am to 4:30 during weekdays. As the update reveals, there are lane reductions between Pruneridge Avenue and Homestead Road. Moreover, Pruneridge Avenue is permanently closed between the Hampton driveway and Tantau Avenue.

In addition to the aerial image shared by Apple, you can see a new footage recorded, by drone, this weekend, of the building site (via 9to5Mac).

Apple’s project schedule reveals that, by the end of the year, the company has planned to have completed work with street utilities and the demolition, while the earthwork is set to continue until mid-Q2 2015. If everything goes according to the plan, Apple should have finished the second campus by the end of 2016.

The 2.8 million square-foot spaceship-like building is designed to foster creative work and collaboration, and will incorporate an underground parking facility with a capacity of up to 2,400 cars, a fitness center, and more.
