Apple may not complete work on its new spaceship headquarters until 2016, reports Bloomberg.

The iPhone maker included the new timetable in an updated proposal it submitted to the city on Nov. 14. While Apple, the world’s largest company by market value, had wanted to break ground on the 176-acre campus this year, the city may not complete its environmental impact report until June, and Apple may not be able to start work until 2014.

“They could conceivably break ground in 2013, but only if everything goes smoothly,” said David Brandt, Cupertino’s city manager. That depends on the city council approving the project quickly, and on residents not filing legal challenges. “The project is running a little bit slow.”

Brandt says that by updating its proposal this month, possible approval in early 2013 is unrealistic. Originally, Apple had planned to move into the building in 2015.
