This was an attempt to create Apple's "spaceship" campus, Apple Park (also known as Apple Campus 2), in Minecraft. I started the project on December 28th, 2015, and I successfully finished it on April 4th of this year (2017). What drew me to this is my appreciation for end to end design and a crazy idea in my head that said "Hey let's build the world's curviest campus in a video game based on cubes." It features everything the real campus does save the underground parking garage, from a fully furnished fitness center (complete with yoga mats, saunas, treadmills, and more) to an absolutely massive central ring. Anyways, here are a few key points of interest:

-It's a 1:1 full scale replica
-It's massive
-This is built entirely by hand (no mods)
-It took 413 hours.
-It's terrain-accurate, based off topographical maps of Cupertino and the official landscaping plans
-Each hill, path, and orchard are true to the construction plans, down the the placement of each handcrafted cherry tree.
-All the general areas are fully furnished (so, the fitness center, atriums, cafes, maintenance building, Glendenning Barn, everywhere but the office space)
-There are 28 cafes spread throughout main building, plus 2 outdoor cafes, 1 (presumably healthy) cafe in the fitness center, and of course the main cafeteria.
-A megabuild is any Minecraft build utilizing at least one million blocks (people kept wondering).

It's the voxel equivalent of fine pixel art, on a scale I don't believe has ever been done before. To put it into perspective, the surface area alone of the campus (excluding phase 2) is 153 acres, or 620,000 square meters (a block in Minecraft is 1 cubic meter).

Download note: This was built one an Xbox One. I incorrectly assumed I'd be able to transfer the save file to my computer upon completion to share it with you guys. Unfortunately, after hours of finagling, angry words, and even some rudimentary hard drive hacking, I was unable to retrieve it. Curse you Microsoft and your determination to prevent people from hacking their save files! If anyone is skilled in hacking or works for Microsoft in a relevant area, I'd value your help in retrieving the file to share with the Minecraft community.

Unfortunately, it's not available for download. Read the download note at the end of the description, and that should explain everything for you.
Ok Thanks
Good job so far, I think it looks great! I am sorry to hear about the limits on transferring the world. I don't know if you looked at this site (https://marc.tv/export-xbox-360-minecraft-maps-to-mac-or-pc/) but it might help you. Hope it works out!
