YouTubers Matthew Roberts and Duncan Sinfield have been taking their pricey drones to the skies every month, like clockwork, to keep us updated on construction progress with birds-eye 4K footage.

The most recent drone video from Matthew focuses on landscaping work as other smaller structures are beginning to pop up throughout the campus, with landscaping on the corporate auditorium set to begin shortly.

A new ultra high-definition drone video of Apple’s upcoming Campus 2 facility, posted Monday by YouTuber Duncan Sinfield, gives a nice overview of just how far along the project has progressed over the past twelve months.

Apple Campus 2 visitor’s center to feature store, cafe and rooftop observation deck

Apple’s new headquarters is going to be quite the tourist attraction, reports Silicon Valley Business Journal. The site has uncovered documents, first filed with the city of Cupertino back in April, which layout the company’s plans for a massive visitor’s center located on the “spaceship” campus.

According to the plans, the center will include a rooftop observation deck, a cafe, and a 10,000 square-foot storefront. Apple hopes the space will “create a public face of the Apple Campus 2 that reflects Apple’s business and design practices, and allows for a long-term presence in Cupertino.”

Apple’s iSpaceship campus will use recycled water

Apple’s upcoming Campus 2 building, nicknamed by the press iSpaceship due to its appearance resembling a flying saucer that has just landed in a field, will be more environmentally friendly than initially thought with news Wednesday that the facility will take full advantage of recycled water.

As reported by The San Jose Mercury News, the Santa Clara Valley Water District board last night approved a $17.5 million project that will deepen the use of recycled water in the parched South Bay “and make Apple’s futuristic new campus a little bit greener.”

Drone footage gives us another bird’s-eye view of iSpaceship, this time in crisp 4K resolution

We’ve seen our a share of aerial footage thus fair detailing progress being made on Campus 2, Apple’s upcoming corporate headquarters shaped as a flying saucer. Uploaded to YouTube on Sunday, a new video — this one in glorious 4K resolution — shows that so-called iSpaceship is indeed coming along nicely.

Of course, you’ll need a 4K output device to really appreciate all the pixels, which shouldn’t be a problem if you own a 27-inch iMac with “5K” Retina display.

Parking garage and event theater beginning to take shape on Campus 2

Apple’s Campus 2 continues to take shape, as evidenced in the latest drone footage. The folks over at AppleInsider used their DJI Phantom 2 Vision Plus to capture new video showing the continued progress of the construction site, which now has large amounts of concrete poured and several cranes moving about.

The earth-built ramps previously used to gain access to the site are now gone, and work on an underground channel access has begun. The plan is to connect the main employee entrance off of Wolfe Road to the garage underneath the main Campus 2 building, as well as the two above-ground parking garages.

Apple spending $161 million on Campus 2 auditorium, $74 million on fitness center
