Apple’s new Austin campus: what we know so far
Austin’s ranking as America’s No. 1 boom town got a huge boost in late 2018, when Apple announced that it will build a new 133-acre campus valued at $1 billion in North Austin.
The campus will have space for up to 15,000 workers, with 5,000 jobs to be created immediately, according to Apple.
Added to the 6,200 employees that Apple already has in Austin, the expansion will make it the city’s largest private employer. Austin is already home to more Apple employees than any other city outside of its headquarters in Cupertino, California.
Apple’s new campus will be located less than a mile from its existing Austin campus, about 12 miles north of downtown. The location is approximately 15 miles from Rancho Sienna via Ronald Reagan Boulevard and W. Parmer Lane.
“Apple has been a vital part of the Austin community for a quarter century, and we are thrilled that they are deepening their investment in our people and the city we love,” said Austin Mayor Steve Adler.
The new Apple jobs will include a mix of engineering, research, business operations, sales and customer support. Apple said its new campus will preserve 50 acres of natural open space, and that workspaces will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy.
