Updated Apple 'spaceship' campus plans posted to Cupertino city website earlier than expectedComing hours after a report that Apple's new Campus 2 project would likely see a delayed completion, the city of Cupertino posted to its website the latest plans submitted by the company earlier this month.

While not much has changed from the original Campus 2 submission, which was filed in June 2011, the updated plans offer insight into Apple's construction timeline, with the current completion date standing at sometime in 2016.
It was reported earlier today that the city of Cupertino took receipt of Apple's revised project submission on Nov. 14, which noted a possible delay due to the site's environmental impact study. Currently, estimates have the report scheduled for completion in June 2013, meaning that the earliest Apple can break ground is next year.
They could conceivably break ground in 2013, but only if everything goes smoothly, Cupertino city manager David Brandt said of Apple's project. The project is running a little bit slow.
The city's director of community development, Aarti Shrivastava, on Tuesday said the recently-submitted plans would likely be posted after Thanksgiving, allowing time for the site to add additional servers for an expected crush of curious Apple fans.
