Construction on Apple Park, the new Apple headquarters, is nearly complete
Apple's (AAPL) massive new headquarters, officially dubbed "Apple Park" -- and unofficially dubbed "Spaceship" -- is nearing completion. And as evidenced by this sunset drone video tour, it's looking glorious:
The video is the latest in a series of drone videos from Matthew Roberts (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/footage-of-apples-new-spaceship-includes-glimpse-of-the-steve-jobs-theater-2017-08-17) showing the stages of the 175-acre "Apple Park" campus's construction.
The drone video includes a flight over the Visitor Center, as well as the 1,000-seat Steve Jobs Theater, which hosted its first ever event earlier this month for the new iPhone X product launch (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/everything-apple-announced-at-its-iphone-event-2017-09-12).
The visitor center (http://appleinsider.com/articles/17/09/12/apple-parks-new-108m-visitor-center-spares-no-expense-to-dazzle-guests), which cost more than $80 million, includes a retail store, cafe and rooftop viewing deck for the public to catch a glimpse of what's happening at the Spaceship across the street. That building will open to the public later this year.
The video also shows more landscaping since the last update; Apple is expected to plant about 9,000 trees on the campus by the time the project is complete. The campus will also include a pond, walking trails and a fitness center. The campus will eventually host about 12,000 employees.
