    Back in March, the State of Texas announced that Apple would be pursuing a major expansion of its facilities in Austin, investing over $300 million to add 3,600 workers to its existing campus dedicated to customer support, sales, and accounting for the Americas. With various government approvals coming over the following months, Apple was then able to purchase the land in July, paving the way for the expansion project to begin.

    The Austin American-Statesman now reports that there is indeed major work underway at the site.
    The report notes that Apple's ultimate plans, which will take up to a decade to build out, consist of seven buildings totaling slightly over one million square feet and three parking garages housing 5,500 spaces.

    Apple is in the midst of a major expansion of its facilities, from data centers in North Carolina, Oregon, and Nevada to its massive Apple Campus 2 in Cupertino that will house as many as 14,000 employees when it opens in 2016. In the meantime, Apple has been snapping up leased space throughout Silicon Valley and has just broken ground on a small campus in Santa Clara, California that will house roughly 1,200 employees.

    The TX governor was on news services today including CNBC the financial news network, espousing TX as the number one state for business, which it objectively is. Not at all surprising Apple is expanding there and not surprising that expansion has a 10 year plan.

    Building in Cupertino is nostalgic but will prove to be an excessive cost center going forward. Some Apple employees may opt to be "stationed" elsewhere and only visit CA due largely to tax and housing reasons.
