Apple “spaceship” campus behind schedule, over budget

Apple's new "spaceship campus, or more formally called Campus 2, is still in the planning stages and ground breaking still has yet to begin. In fact, it's being reported that Campus 2 is behind schedule, and the budget for the project skyrocketed to $5 billion, up from $3 billion originally. If that's the case, the project would cost more than most top-of-the-line corporate skyscrapers, including the new World Trade Center in New York City.
