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

Apple CEO Tim Cook

Will the new Apple campus be located in Northern Virginia, which is also on Amazon's shortlist for its second headquarters, or in North Carolina, close to three universities? In addition, the average salary for Apple employees in the area - which would include research and development positions - would be roughly $130,000 according to WRAL News.

Still, CNBC reports that North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper is presently "negotiating an incentive package" for Apple, should the company decide to set up shop in the proposed area.

"We're narrowing the site selection for a new USA campus, and we look forward to sharing more information on that later this year", Cook said during Apple's call with investors on April 29.

On Wednesday, Raleigh's WRAL news outlet cited sources as saying that the Apple campus is a "done deal" and that the only hurdle left is for the North Carolina Statehouse to pass a package of tax incentives to score the $1.5 billion investment from Apple. "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.

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.

The Champions League eluded him, though, even though he appeared in three finals, most recently losing out to Barcelona in 2015 and Real Madrid in 2017.

Apple is exploring its options for the location of a new headquarters.

"We're not doing a beauty contest kind of thing", Cook said in a recent interview. This increase in Apple's employee headcount would go a long way towards fulfilling the company's goal of investing $30 billion in the USA and creating upwards of 20,000 new jobs over the next five years. The new campuses will not be anything like the previous ones. The Washington Post also reported that Virginia officials had pitched Apple.

North Carolina Speaker of the House Tim Moore did not respond to a request for comment.

Apple's new "spaceship" headquarters in Cupertino, named Apple Park, has been called an architectural landmark. In the meantime, the company will begin construction on the new RTP campus, which will sit on up to 300 acres of land.
