Apple's Next Campus Could Either Be In Arizona Or North Carolina

Phil Berger and Time Moore stand at a podium inside the North Carolina General Assembly

Part of Apple's investment in the United StatesTim Cook supposedly met with North Carolina's governor over the weekend to discuss the project, having already been in the area to deliver a commencement speech at Duke University. Cooper has reportedly been negotiating an incentive package to entice Apple, but such a package is said to still need approval from the North Carolina state legislature.

CATAWBA COUNTY- Apple is planning to spend $2 billion over 10 years on properties across North Carolina with Catawba County receiving an investment of $1 billion or more, WBTV reports.

But it isn't the only tech sector behemoth looking for a new location.

Lawmakers in North Carolina are apparently making a bid for Apple to build its next campus in the state and the Research Triangle Park is apparently at the top of the list for possible sites, CNBC reports.

In January, Apple pledged a $350 billion investment into the us economy over the next five years, and part of that plan is the opening of a new Apple headquarters. "We do not share information about economic development projects before they are final, but I will be happy to share more information if or when a decision is made", spokesman Jamal Little said in an email.

As Fortune notes, Apple's method for trying to find a location for its second campus is markedly different from Amazon's approach to finding the next spot for another headquarters. This increase in Apple's employee headcount would go a long way towards fulfilling the company's goal of investing $30 billion in the US and creating upwards of 20,000 new jobs over the next five years. Though Apple previously said the campus would hold call-center workers, it seems possible that it would also have high-paying tech jobs.

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

Apple didn't immediately return a request for comment. This means that 20,000 new jobs will be created by Apple which is indeed a good thing for the U.S. economy. Apple is said to be thinking about leasing office space and hiring 1,000 employees to start with, before it moves into a 300-acre campus in Research Triangle Park once the structure is completed.
