CUPERTINO — Standing outside his house on East Homestead Road, 78-year-old Steve Rohde remembers rectangular Hewlett-Packard offices, quieter roads and a time when he looked straight across his yard and saw cherry orchards.

Now a massive spaceship-like Apple campus has landed across the street.

“They put it together like a jigsaw puzzle. It was really incredible,” said Rohde, who has lived near the dividing line between Sunnyvale and Cupertino since the 1970s.

This month, Apple employees started to move into the ring-shaped main building, which spans about 2.8 million square feet, contains four stories and includes the world’s largest panels of curved glass. More than 12,000 workers will fill the campus over six months as construction on the 175-acre site continues into the summer.
