    Apple's new Spaceship campus is said to be an amazing build with an unique design and that's why Apple's employees but also its fans are looking forward to its completion. Now, according to new images posted to Twitter by KCBS news and traffic reporter Ron Cervi and spotted by MacRumors, construction is continuing at a rapid pace

    What you see in the above picture is an aerial shot of the campus, taken by Cervi. We can see that the construction has progressed for the last several months. The perimeter walls that will house the foundation of the building seem to be nearing the completion.

    We can clearly seeing the round aspect of the building taking shape. Back in June, the wall first started going up so there's been a lot of work done for the past month. According to Cervi, there are also some "underground tunnels" which represent deep furrows in the dirt.

    Apple's Campus 2 is said to be the "most energy efficient building of its kind," being powered by 100 percent renewable energy and populated with more than 7,000 trees.

    It will feature a 2.8 million square foot ring-shaped main building, an underground parking facility able to accommodate 2,400 cars, a 100,000 square foot fitness center, and a 120,000 square foot auditorium. If all goes well, the first phase of construction on the campus is said to finalize in 2016.
