The international tech giant provided the update in an April 26 news release that outlined its plans to invest hundreds of billions in jobs and infrastructure nationwide. In the news release, Apple stated it is investing billions in 5G technology and silicon engineering in Texas.
“It’s been over 25 years since Apple opened its first office in Austin, and we are thrilled to be deepening our partnership with the city and people here,” said Kristina Raspe, vice president of worldwide real estate and facilities, on Apple’s expansion in Austin, in the news release.
A more specific timeline for the Northwest Austin campus, located off West Parmer Lane near the intersection at Anderson Mill Road, was not disclosed in the news release.
According to permits filed with the city of Austin, Apple is working to finish building out its office space and research and developments labs at the site of its new campus. As previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper, the tech company is also constructing garages and a 75,500-square-foot, six-story hotel on the property.
When the new campus opens, Apple will bring in 5,000 new employees to work at the site. Eventually, Apple plans to employ up to 15,000 workers at the Northwest Austin campus. At the time the project was announced, Apple said the new jobs will be across a range of fields, including operations, finance, sales, customer support, and research and development.
