Apple's new campus may not be completed until 2016
It looks like things are going a bit slow for Apple's new campus, aka 'The Spaceship". Previously hoping to have it completed by 2015, Apple has now informed Cupertino officials that it might take longer to finish what is expected to become one of the largest buildings on Earth.

According to a new construction timetable submitted by Apple, the employees' new home is more likely to be ready sometime in 2016, because the environmental impact report might be not be completed until June 2013. This means that, according to city manager David Brandt, the company could eventually start work on the project in 2013, but that's in case everything goes smoothly. That leaves some possibility for the project to be ready in 2015, but judging by the tone, it's safer to expect a 2016 day of completion, as there may be some eventual delay with the city council's approval or opposition from city residents.

We're happy that the project is still ongoing, though, so in case the world doesn't end this year, there's no reason to believe that we won't be able to see it at some point in the near future.

Apple will most definitely have gone down by then... A repeat of Microsoft vs Apple except Steve Jobs is not here to save them.

Apple will be bankrupt by then? A company famous for hoarding the money they make? Unless there is an absolute market crash, it's going to take far longer than 4 years for Apple to run out of money. Look at how long Blackberry has lasted...or how long Palm lasted for that matter. Even to this day, Apple still makes a ridiculous amount of money (some of which, I wish they would pay to their retail employees). I'm guessing by 2016, you'll have turned 18 years old and possibly gone through a few Economics classes...

I always think it's funny that when someone makes a worthless comment and someone else corrects them on it, the original poster always comes back with "I was just joking." I'm not an idiot. I'm just an adult and one day you will be too...

This surely isn't going to be the largest building on Earth.....and that's a fact. It may be the largest circular building....but not the largest building in general.

How can you state that if nowhere it indicates how large the building is?

Interesting render I guess... but um, where the frig is everyone going to park? And err... where's the roadway that gets you to the front door??? Everyone expected to bicycle or hike in to work? I guess those issues will be addressed in the updated Apple HQ 2.0. ;-P In other news... Apple really loves rounded corners don't they?
