    Apple's proposed new headquarters is being called the "Spaceship" -- a 2.8 million square foot, four-story, saucer-shaped building.

    Cupertino residents on Tuesday were able to review Apple's plans to build the new campus and ask questions about the planned headquarters.

    Heavy traffic was a concern among residents who attended the meeting. More than 14,000 employees are expected to work at the planned campus.

    The building is seen by many as the lasting legacy of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

    Officials told NBC Bay Area that negotiations have been going smoothly. 

    Apple executives have said they want to stay in Cupertino and the city also doesn't want to lose the company. Both sides are working to address community concerns.

    Tuesday's meeting also reviewed environmental reports and gave time to those who want to build the new headquarters.
