Apple has announced in January this year that it will establish a new company campus in a brand new location, even though the company has not revealed the specific location of its new headquarters. In March of this year, Bloomberg predicted based on various sources that Apple may choose North Carolina…
Is It True?
It do seems that it will be located at North Carolina, and is in Research Triangle Park, according to Triangle Business Journal. Local news media WRAL has also claimed that Research Triangle Park will be Apple’s second headquarter, and it’s already ‘a done deal’ if the state agrees to tax incentives for Apple.
Republican legislators planned to meet Wednesday afternoon to hear details of a state incentives package that would allow Apple to hold onto a portion of the taxes generated by the project.
“It’s a done deal,” one source said, “as soon as we pass this bill.”
For those unknown Research Triangle Park, it has become an attractive site for tech companies like IBM, Bayer, Cisco, General Electric, and more. The research park also serves as a technology hub due to its proximity to NC State, the University of North Carolina, and Duke University.
