Apple Considers North Carolina for Second Campus Location

Could North Carolina be site of new Apple campus?

North Carolina is already home to one of Apple's data centers, and several members of Apple's leadership have connections to the Triangle area. Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook is said to have held some meetings with North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper last weekend about the possibility of Apple bringing its new campus to the state.

Cook graduated from the Fuqua School of Business with a Master of Business Administration in 1988, and Eddy Cue-senior vice president of internet software and services at Apple-graduated from Duke with a bachelor's degree in computer science and economics in 1986. But, with both tech titans potentially considering Northern Virginia, the state could find itself in the driver's seat, instead of having to pay a lot in incentives to attract the new development.

"We're not doing a beauty contest kind of thing", Cook said in a recent interview.

Apple has said it plans to spend $30B over five years on new facilities and hiring 20K employees.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Northern Virginia is in the running for the new location-but it may not be the only East Coast site in contention. Apple, too, is on the hunt for a new campus that will employ thousands of workers.

Apple didn't immediately return a request for comment. Officials from the state reportedly pitched locations in Arlington, Fairfax, and Loudoun counties to Apple people.

"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.

Apple's new "spaceship" headquarters in Cupertino, named Apple Park, has been called an architectural landmark.

Total investment by Apple in the state of NC for the new campus is estimated to be between $1.5 to $2 billion dollars upon completion.
