AUSTIN - Apple Inc.'s northwest Austin campus isn't done just yet, but the company created 743 new local jobs in 2013, according to documents filed with the City of Austin.

The documents also reveal that Apple spent at least $56.5 million on its Austin expansion in 2013.

In 2012, Apple secured nearly $37 million in incentives from city and state government inventive programs to help the company expand its American Operations Center. Those incentive agreements require the company to more than double the size of its already 3,100-strong local workforce by creating 3,600 more jobs.

The company’s local investment is expected to include seven new office buildings with a combined 1 million sf or more.

Most of the new-hires so far have been locals. About 67 percent of Apple’s workers had Austin addresses before they were hired.
