Tuesday officially marks one year since Apple announced a new $1 billion-plus campus and engineering hub in the Triangle. It is expected to create thousands of high-paying jobs over the next several years in the Triangle, Cary, North Carolina.
Cary Chamber of Commerce President Mark Lawson: "They’re in the process of recruiting all types of technical staff and engineers, software, really all positions they’re hiring for. It was exciting to have Apple look at that as a launching point for [its] campus."
Economist and N.C. State University’s Dr. Mike Walden said Apple’s presence will impact everything from jobs to housing in the Triangle.
Walden added that "It’s going to be very interesting with Apple to see to what extent they allow employees to work remotely, which I think can be a big game-changer to the housing market."
In the meantime, Apple is planning to spend about $19.3 million on renovating the seven-floor MetLife Building 3 at 301 MetLife Way in Cary. Interior renovation permits have been approved for floors 2-6, which will cost about $6,826,000.
