Apple just put the finishing touches on its new $5 billion headquarters — and the results are stunning

Apple's $5 billion campus in Cupertino, California, with its famous "spaceship" building, is finally finished — and employees are moving in. 

Most of the heavy machinery has been moved off campus, and there's only a little bit of landscaping left to do, according to a new video by drone videographer Duncan Sinfield

STOCK PRICE FOR AAPL

Full price information

The campus, called "Apple Park," is a huge benefit for the 12,000 lucky Apple employees who get to move in (Apple has 25,000 employees in Silicon Valley). Employees started moving to their new headquarters last year.

Among the perks for employees at Apple Park are new food and gym facilities, fancy new office chairs, a state-of-the-art theater for on-campus presentations, and a giant garden stocked with fruit trees.

Plus, employees in the "ring," as the main building is called by Apple insiders, will get to work in a state-of-the-art building that blurs the indoors and outdoors. It's a stunning campus.

But Apple has made a lot of effort to keep the campus environmentally friendly, not just visually green. The entire roof is covered with solar panels, for example.

Scores of fruit trees have been planted inside the ring. Apple's cafes will use fruit from the campus.

There's also a state-of-the-art gym on the campus and two basketball courts.
