Virginia could turn into new tech hub as Amazon, Apple consider campuses

Region for Apple Campus

Tim Cook also announced that it would not be copying Amazon's style of choosing its new office premises.

The Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California.

The location of Apple's proposed new headquarter has been speculated upon, with North Carolina and Northern Virginia emerging as the two most likely candidates. Officials from the state reportedly pitched locations in Arlington, Fairfax, and Loudoun counties to Apple people.

Tens of thousands of the world's brightest technology developers could be heading to Northern Virginia in the next few years, as two of the world's largest tech companies are said to be considering building their next facilities there.




In January, Apple pledged a $350 billion investment into the USA economy over the next five years, and part of that plan is the opening of a new Apple headquarters. Numerous first new hires at the facility will be call center workers. One source said that Apple would start with 3,000 new jobs, expanding to between 5,000 and 10,000 employees over the long term.

There is certainly something about Northern Virginia that is catching the eye of tech companies, as the area is also among the 20 finalists for the location of the second Amazon headquarters.

Apple has said it is seeking four million square feet to house 20,000 employees for a new campus to go along with its spaceship-like headquarters in California, but CEO Tim Cook later added that he didn't want to make it a "beauty contest kind of thing", referencing Amazon's very public call for applications for its HQ2. They are hiring approximately 1,000 employees before making and transitioning to a 300-acre campus in the southern part of Research Triangle Park.

According to WRAL's sources, it's "a done deal". They put the investment between $1.5 billion and $2 billion.The legislation announced Thursday would also lengthen the maximum terms for the transformative projects program as well as the state's Job Development Investment Grant program to as much as 40 years total. Where Amazon has been overt with its plans, leading to many public subsidy offers from states, and some protests from local residents, Apple is being far more secretive and has only promised to announce new plans for its future investment in US facilities later this year.
