Apple Campus 2 site’s demolition progress shown almost complete in latest aerial photos

The folks over at Apple Toolbox have shared a number of aerial photos capturing the demolition progress of the future site of Apple’s Campus 2 ‘spaceship’. As you can see above, the former site of Hewlett-Packard that Apple purchased in 2010 is leveling out ahead of the expected 2016 completion date. Campus 2 designer Norman Foster discussed the project’s evolution and Steve Jobs’ involvement earlier this week, and late last month we saw a less clear shot of the plot undergoing demolition. Check below for more detailed photos.

Will only appear on redesign env.

The photos, of course, illustrate the amount of work due before Apple Campus 2 shapes up to the infamous ‘spaceship’ mockups we’ve already seen surrounded by a vast landscape and underground parking garage.

It will be interesting to watch this space over the next 24 to 36 months or so and watch Apple’s campus expansion develop from the ground up.

      Wow there going hardcore on the demo. That lot is almost completely cleaned. Looks like they have a crusher going on the left side there I wonder if there crushing the concrete from the old buildings into gravel and using it somehow.
