Shortly before his passing, late Apple CEO Steve Jobs showed the Cupertino, California City Council and the world at large images of what would be its future homestead -- the so-called spaceship campus that would be a magnificent work of art among buildings and structures in its community.

Despite still being some two years away from being ready for "move in," progress is coming along nicely at the site, as illustrated by the new image shared by the iDevice maker on Tuesday. Although the update was primarily designed to help locals navigate the general area -- "Motorists can expect traffic delays in the vicinity of the Apple Campus 2 site... [etc.]"-- the image is what has everyone talking.

And as you can tell by the aerial shot from above, the project is finally starting to resemble the image renderings we were first shown three years ago.

All told, the campus will house well over 10,000 employees once the doors are open. And it won't be a tight squeeze. With nearly 200 acres at its disposal, Apple's future headquarters will be a site like no other once construction is finished.

Although such developments receive very little attention in comparison to the ongoing campus 2 construction, Apple continues to open much small corporate offices across the U.s. and Europe.
