Apple has about six months of waiting before the "spaceship" campus in Cupertino will open its gates, but we already have a good idea how the complex will look like.

Thanks to drone enthusiast Matthew Roberts, we now have an aerial view of the construction's development, with dramatic angles showcasing the donut-shaped main building as well as other parts of the complex.

The drone pilot also captured the attractive entrance to the underground auditorium and the ensemble containing the R&D buildings.

Roberts has been using his skills of piloting a DJI Phantom 3 Pro for some time to keep Apple fans up to date with the construction site of the company's new headquarters. In his latest video, significant progress is visible. The main building is already being clad with the huge solar panels on the rooftop.

When the complex will be opened, the solar panels should provide about 75 percent of the building's energy needs at full capacity. The aerial footage captures the construction crew while it is installing the building's façade, which is composed of 3,000 floor-to-ceiling glass panels. Protection from the California sun will come via canopies that will be installed on the façade.

A special mention goes to the auditorium lobby, which is host to the world's largest carbon-fiber roof. When completed, the auditorium will allow 1,000 people to take a seat and listen to what is likely to be inspiring speeches from tech leaders.

The video shows that the R&D facility is almost ready, and looks like the perfect place for Jony Ive and his team to bake the next Apple game changer.

The drone footage offers a generous perspective over the fitness center that expands to 100,000 square feet. Viewers will also notice the parking areas which seem to be almost finished. Apple decided to make the most out of the desert sun and equipped the parking lot with solar panel roofs, as well.

The campus already hosts heavy machinery that will be used to landscape the area as soon as the construction is completed. The project includes the plantation of more than 7,000 trees and other vegetation species, citrus trees included.

The whole project takes more than 175 acres and is set to offer office space spanning on four floors.

As the complex opens its gates towards the end of this year or early in 2017 at the latest, it will become the workplace of 14,000 Apple employees.

The project is signed by commended architect Norman Foster, and Steve Jobs had a big part in refining it until his death in 2011.
