Apple to build $1 bln campus in Texas

Apple plans to create 20,000 new jobs in the U.S. by 2023

Apple said it added 6,000 jobs to its us workforce this year and plans to hire over 1,000 employees each in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City.

Apple will also invest $10 billion in USA data centers over the next five years, with plans to spend $4.5 billion this year and next. The campus will run on 100 percent renewable energy and 50 acres will be designated "preserved open space".

Apple's existing facility in the city has the second-largest number of employees outside its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. The iPhone maker also plans to hire hundreds of additional workers at its existing sites in Pittsburgh, New York and Boulder, Colorado.

Over the next three years, the company said it plans to add 1,000 jobs in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City and add hundreds of new jobs in Boulder, Pittsburgh and NY.

Apple said it has added about 6,000 jobs to the USA workforce in 2018 and remains well on track to achieve its target of adding 20,000 jobs domestically by 2023.

CNBC has learned that Apple is also thinking of investing $10 billion in USA data centers in the next five years.

Austin Mayor Steve Adler said Apple will bring more middle-skilled jobs to the area that could benefit American veterans. It will cost the company $1 billion to build it. The Nashville, Tennessee office was recently opened, and Apple's Miami place is going to double in size, the company claims.

"Talent, creativity and tomorrow's breakthrough ideas aren't limited by region or zip code", said CEO Tim Cook. The jobs created would be in engineering, research and development, operations and finance. The paper also reported that a potential property tax abatement from the county that will be home to the new campus "could be worth tens of millions of dollars over the life of the deal".

Austin already is home to more than 6,000 Apple employees, representing the largest population of the company's workers outside of Apple's Cupertino headquarters.

"This makes Apple Austin's largest employer and we're incredibly proud of that", said Deirdre O'Brien, Apple vice president of people.

"We'll keep doing everything we can to bring more good jobs to North Carolina", the statement said.

Apple's also planning to invest $10 billion to build data centers in the U.S. in the next five years.

The government incentives offered to Apple seem "more in the line of normal business site selection" compared with Amazon's public "shakedown", said Mark Muro, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Center. "Apple and Austin share a creative spark and a commitment to getting big things done".
