Apple is planning a new campus. Could it be in the Triangle?

Apple is planning a new campus. Could it be in the Triangle?

Apple, too, is on the hunt for a new campus that will employ thousands of workers. Apple's future campus will not be like its main corporate campuses in Northern California, One Infinite Loop and Apple Park. 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.

Apple's plans are part of a pledge the company has made to invest $350 billion in the United States over the next five years, hire 20,000 more Apple employees, and set up a new Apple campus.

North Carolina was first tipped as a possible location for the new Apple campus on Tuesday.

Amazon's own development plans have been known for a little while longer, though they hasn't been quite as specific.

Northern Virginia may also be a candidate, according to the Washington Post.




Amazon may be garnering numerous headlines, as the Seattle-based e-commerce and tech giant continues the process of picking a location for its second corporate headquarters, which has been dubbed HQ2.

However, Virginia certainly already has some stiff competition.

The WRAL report says that Apple's investment will range between $1.5 and $2 billion, creating up to 10,000 jobs with an average annual salary of around $130,000. Research Triangle Park in North Carolina is also on the shortlist, the Triangle Business Journal reported. WRAL reports that Apple could announce its commitment to the Tar Heel State in early June, as legislators are close to approving an incentive package, and one source calls Apple's move "a done deal, as soon as we pass this bill".

Apple has said it is seeking four million square feet to house 20,000 employees for a new campus to go along with its spaceship-like headquarters in California, but CEO Tim Cook later added that he didn't want to make it a "beauty contest kind of thing", referencing Amazon's very public call for applications for its HQ2. However, it's the latter that is being tipped as Apple's favorite of the two potential sites.

Apple's search for a new campus location is being conducted in secret.
