an article about Apple and Google's effects on the office market in the Triangle in the Triangle Biz Journal. ""Chris Chung, CEO of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, said on

This is such a transformative project for the entire region it deserves it own thread.  For upcoming renderings of the campus, for temporary office space and any other news related to this new campus.

I can see the Triangle getting the lion's share of Apple jobs over time.  It’s WAY cheaper than any other location where Apple has a large workforce, and it has far less traffic.

I LOVE SF, but Cupertino is 50 miles from SF, and is ABSURDLY expensive.

I’ll take Raleigh over Cupertino any day.

That is one reason I think this Apple campus will attract some of the best graduates from the east coast and experienced professionals from all over.  If you make $200K a year you can barely home a single family home in Silicon Valley where you can have quite a place in the Triangle.  and many East Coast born applicants will want to live on the east coast closer to their family and friends than move all the way to California and live in a shoe box only to say I work in the Apple round building.  

 

Furthermore, there is currently a mass exodus from CA, for a number of reasons. People are leaving and going to states like TX, FL, and NC in droves. I'm one of them...

The corporations are following the trend.

To be fair, the first picture from Raleigh isn't a house. It's the Wakefield Plantation Clubhouse -- but it doesn't make your point invalid.

I wonder why they aren't showing the actual house for sale for $975K in that picture. Unless i'm buying the clubhouse, it shouldn't be in the picture.

If I had $2.6m to spend on a house, I'd rather spend it in the Triangle than in Silicon Valley.

My thoughts on the Apple campus in RTP I think it will be mid rise buildings 5-7 stories with structured parking decks.  It is interesting they are looking at the Metlife building on the lake and their property has a lake.  Also when they flirted with RTP a few years back they were looking at the 11000 Weston Pkwy building next door also on the lake.  That building is now occupied by Xerox mostly.   I also think 3000 employees is just the start and I think it will grow much bigger just like the Austin campus.  If you are an east coast college grad or native anyway from Maine to Florida I am betting you would like to work at this campus than an Austin or California location for lots of reason.

I'd say lower taxes (than CA), lower cost of living, and more money are good incentives.

WRAL Techwire is throwing cold water on the thought that Apple is looking for space.  I do believe they are in some fashion it is hard to onboard new employees all remotely.  

But I guess we will see.

Apple already looking to hire in Triangle – but is office space needed now? Recruiters wonder | WRAL TechWire
