Apple is planning to invest $1 billion towards building a new campus in Austin Texas.
On Thursday, the iPhone maker announced its plans to have the new facility across 133 acres, where it expects to employ 5,000 people initially and the number could potentially go up to 15,000 given the available capacity. The campus would include various functions including engineering, R&D, operations, finance, sales and customer support. The company already has an existing campus in Austin, where it houses 6,200 employees.
Additionally, Apple plans to employ 1,000 people in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City each, and add hundreds of new jobs in its Pittsburgh, New York, Boulder, Boston and Portland, Oregon offices.
In January, Apple revealed that it would spend $30 billion in U.S. facilities and create 20,000 jobs in the nation over the next five years.
