Also, one could tell much progress has been made by the huge new boulders and greenery. This time, however, no progress is seen on the garden area of the building. Aside from the lights, only the massive water feature has started gaining its foundation. The ariel video captured the building quite cleverly, showing off all of its aspects, the underground auditorium which Apple plans to use for future product and service reveals, the lights as well as the R&D compound.
