WaPo: Apple considers NoVa for new campus

New Apple Campus Could be in North Carolina or Northern Virginia

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. Apple in January said it was planning on building a new USA campus. 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. And North Carolina might have the inside track to the facility. According to a new report, one of the spots Apple is looking at is in the same area that Amazon is eying too.

Apple is said to be in talks with North Carolina state government officials over the prospect of establishing its rumored second campus in the vicinity of the state's popular "Research Triangle". A number of major companies take up residence in RTP including SAS, Cisco, IBM, and Lenovo (which has its USA headquarters in Morrisville, NC), with companies feeding off fresh talent from nearby Duke University, UNC-Chapel Hill, and NC State University. And Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of internet software and services, is a Duke alum. Also, Cook, who delivered the commencement address at Duke University, in Raleigh last weekend, earned an MBA degree from the school. 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.
