Apple Exploring North Carolina, Northern Virginia for New Campus

Apple has been searching locations from the previous various months for a new campus concentrating on technical support. According to some new reports, the site in North Carolina and Northern Virginia are under consideration.

Some reports have mentioned that Apple has explored starting a campus for 20,000 employees in Northern Virginia. It is a place where Amazon is also thinking about its new campus. Apple said to economic development officials in Northern Virginia that it is looking four million square feet of area to sustain 20,000 jobs, and officials suggested various possible sites.

Tim Cook Apple’s CEO is said to meet with North Carolina governor Roy Cooper and commerce secretary Tony Copeland. While Cook was in the city atop the weekend to give the convocation speech at Duke University.

The company refused to grant further details on the campus’ location. It has been exploring its options and settling with several states for tax cuts and other perks. Apple’s future campus will not be like its main corporate campuses in Northern California, One Infinite Loop and Apple Park. It is supposed to be centred on housing customer service and technical support employees.

Apple is said to be preparing to hire office space in Cary to start with. They are hiring approximately 1,000 employees before making and transitioning to a 300-acre campus in the southern part of Research Triangle Park. Apple may also be thinking to spend in extra infrastructure, starting another data centre in the state.
