Apple is rumored to be planning a new campus in the Raleigh region of North Carolina. While Techcrunch reported earlier in the week that Apple was looking to Virginia for its next campus buildout, Raleigh news station WRAL reports that the tech giant is in fact due to announce Research Triangle Park, NC as the actual site.
According to a source who spoke to WRAL, the deal is in the final stages of confirmation.
The establishment of a second Apple campus will bring with it thousands of news jobs and an estimated $1.5bn of investment, as well as average salaries of $130,000 a year. It is said that the brand is looking for a favorable tax deal from the North Carolina legislature in return.
In more tech news, Epic Games just announced that Fortnite is due to be launching on Android later this year.
