FORTUNE — The last time we looked at the site of Apple’s (AAPL) new campus headquarters, bulldozers were still knocking down the Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) buildings that used to occupy the site.

Three months later, excavation has progressed to the point where the shape and dimensions of the main building have begun to emerge. (Click for more photos.)

In Steve Jobs’ final public appearance — his 2011 presentation to a starstruck Cupertino city council — he described the 2.8 million square foot structure as looking “a little like a spaceship has landed.” You can watch the video here.
