Hot on the heels of Amazon’s Lebron James-esque HQ2 location selection sideshow, Apple has quietly announced it, too, will be taking its talents to a new city (or in this case, expanding its talents in that city): Austin, Texas .
The new 133-acre campus will be located less than a mile from existing Apple locations in Austin and accommodate 5,000 additional employees with the ability to grow to 15,000. The campus will include jobs in engineering, R&D, operations, finance, sales, and customer support. Workspaces will be powered by 100% renewable energy, as is the case with all Apple’s worldwide facilities, and 50 acres of the new campus will be set aside as preserved open space.
Apple also announced it will establish new sites in Seattle, San Diego, and Culver City as well as establishing new locations in Pittsburgh, New York, and Boulder, Colo. over the next three years. The company just opened its most recent office in Nashville, Tenn. and has plans of doubling the size of its Miami office.
