San Jose city leaders Tuesday unanimously approved an updated development agreement that clears the way for Apple to begin building its 86-acre campus in North San Jose, a massive undertaking that could bring more than 16,000 jobs to the community. "Welcome to San Jose," said Councilwoman Magdalena Carrasco. "What can I do to convince you to open a store in Alum Rock?" The San Jose Mercury Press report points to the future Apple campus being located on the north side of U.S. 101 near the Highway 87 interchange and stretches along Charcot Avenue to North First Street. With the exception of some existing office complexes, it is a highly-visible piece of land that has been vacant for years. And San Jose gave Apple a sweet deal when it comes to building and expanding the new campus -- up to 15 years to add buildings to the site. "This provides assurances to Apple that upon approval of any necessary reserved discretionary approvals, Apple may proceed with future development" the city planners said in a staff report.
