North Carolina Apple campus could be 'a done deal' if incentives pass

Tim Cook also announced that it would not be copying Amazon's style of choosing its new office premises. Apple's future campus will not be like its main corporate campuses in Northern California, One Infinite Loop and Apple Park. The Washington Post reported yesterday that Apple is also being pursued by Virginia to move into an area near where Apple opened its first retail store in 2001, Tysons Corner in McLean, Virginia. It would seem that officials are thinking that Apple might be looking for a more suburban setup.

Interestingly, Northern Virginia wasn't the only potential Apple suitor that leaked this week.

Apple is now looking for a location for a new campus that could host as many as 20,000 employees. Numerous first new hires at the facility will be call center workers. Interestingly, "many of the jobs would be high-tech research and development jobs", the report says, suggesting that Apple expects to expand the site beyond its initially noted technical support functions. 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.

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

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.

Union minister Prakash Javadekar promptly dismissed the JD-S charge, calling it "imaginary". "We have no issue with the governor". Congress Karnataka unit president G Parmeshwara, however, reasserted that all the Congress MLAs were with the party.

There are also some connections to the company that could help Northern Virginia's chances.

However, Virginia certainly already has some stiff competition.

According to multiple reports, Northern Virginia and North Carolina are under consideration, as the new Apple campus location.

This would be well worth it, North Carolina believes, as Apple would be investing somewhere between $1.5 billion and $2 billion in the state, and would bring jobs that pay an average of $130,000 a year.One government source said this is "by far the biggest project this state's ever seen as far as average salaries ..."

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.
