Apple’s plans to build a new, futuristic campus have been delayed, with the completion date now being pushed back to mid-2016. The original plans for the new 176-acre campus were supposed to be completed a year earlier, but news appeared yesterday suggesting that there had been delays. AllThingsD reached out to Apple for a comment on the delay:

“Apple Campus 2 will be a new home for our company and an important part of the lives of more than 12,000 Apple employees,” Apple spokeswoman Amy Bessette told AllThingsD. “With that in mind, we have approached this project with the same care and attention to detail we pay when designing any Apple product. We look forward to moving the project forward with the city and beginning construction.”

Below is the YouTube video showing Steve Jobs presenting the plans for the campus to the Cupertino council back in July 2011. In it, the ex-CEO tells the council that the company wanted to break ground on the campus this year and move into the campus in 2015, but with Apple’s design ethos permeating the process, it seems they’d rather take the time to get it absolutely right rather than rush into the plans.
