A design of Apple's new HQ
Apple offered a revised proposal in September that pushed the start of construction to 2014 and the finished product to mid-2016

Apple's new spaceship-looking headquarters that will be built in Cupertino, California is having a slight construction delay.

After former Apple CEO Steve Jobs submitted the plan to city council in June 2011, the plan was to get approval in early 2013 and complete the project in 2015. However, Apple offered a revised proposal in September that pushed the start of construction to 2014 and the finished product to mid-2016. 

Cupertino City Manager David Brandt added that Apple could possibly start in 2013, but everything from approval to potential legal troubles from residents would have to go completely smoothly.

Another issue that may cause delay is that Apple may not complete its environmental report until June 2013. 

Apple's other changes to the revision include building a new structure for housing utility equipment as well as employee parking spots; removing a footbridge over a creek on the property, and moving a 1,000-seat auditorium further away from a nearby road. 

Apple's new headquarters is expected to be 176 acres, with the main building alone accounting for 2.8 million square feet. The structure is a circular, glass dome that resembles a spaceship. At its size, it will be one of the largest buildings in the world. 

Apple is looking to plant 7,000 trees on the property and employ 14,200 workers.

Google probably already sent Eric Schmidt into the planning meetings to make notes so they can open a hastily built replica a year later, constructed by Samsung with shoddy build quality and a maintenance contract that lasts 6 months before being dumped for Building 1.2 codename "Desperate Desert".
