Apple has been building a new campus called ‘Apple Park ,’ for a number of years now, and with an update to its Maps service, you can see just how nice the area is looking so far.

The $5 billion USD site is intended to be the future headquarters of the Cupertino, California-based tech giant once construction wraps up by the end of 2017. It’s planned to hold over 12,000 employees in a four-storied, 260,000 square metre central building. Apple Park has been designed alongside architecture firm Foster + Partners and is the brainchild of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

With the newly added 3D building models, Apple Maps will now include various points of interest around the campus, including the Steve Jobs Theatre, a fitness centre, a research and development facility and parking structures. The map is so detailed that you’ll even be able to see a manmade pond within the main building.

As well, Maps will now display roads running into and out of the complex, complete with traffic directions and pedestrian walkways.

Apple previously added Apple Park mapping data to the Maps app back in March.
