AUSTIN - Apple has broken ground on a 39-acre campus that will include one million sf of new office space, and is anticipated to expand the company’s existing support and hardware development operations there.
The project comes with $30 million in tax breaks.
Construction on the Austin campus will be completed in phases, with an initial $56 million, 200,000-sf facility to be completed by 2015. The next phase includes 800,000 sf of office space spread out over several buildings, to be completed by 2021.
Apple currently employs about 3,500 people in Austin. The new campus is estimated to bring that count closer to 7,100 in the next decade.
