Progress on Apple’s in-development “Campus 2” is rapidly being made, according to a recent article highlighting three recently-published images of the construction site.
it appears preparations are being made to pour the concrete foundation that will serve as a base for the three-story building. Of note is rebar work being done to retaining walls ringing the build’s perimeter, which will likely be paired with a comprehensive drainage system to avoid water ingress and lower level flooding.
In addition to this, however, the images also show how Campus 2 developers have been “digging out troughs in the central courtyard area” – as you can see, these tunnels appear to be accompanied by pipes, however their exact purpose is currently unknown.
The new campus was first unveiled by Apple co-founder and then-CEO Steve Jobs in 2011, and it gained final approval from the City of Cupertino in November 2013. Once complete (in late–2016), it’ll feature a 120,000 square foot auditorium and will host Cupertino’s WWDC keynote alongside its iPhone event, iPad event, and any further special events Apple wishes to hold.
