It Will Take 9,200 People to Build Apple’s New Spaceship Campus


Who says Apple doesn’t create jobs in the U.S.?
Apple says that 9,200 construction workers will be brought on full-time over the next three years to work on the company’s new 2.8-million-square-foot spaceship campus, according to an 82-page economic impact report Apple put out on Tuesday.
From the economic impact report
Apple Inc.’s worldwide corporate headquarters facility, which is known as the Infinite Loop Campus, is located at 1 Infinite Loop in the City of Cupertino. The 856,000 square foot campushouses approximately 3,000 employees. In order to accommodate its 13,000 additional employees based in Cupertino, Apple has had to purchase or lease more than 2 million square feet of additional space in Cupertino and in nearby cities. Apple has been assembling properties for the purpose of building a second campus over several years, including the 100-acre property that formerly served as the headquarters of Hewlett Packard.

The report, which was prepared by Keyser Marston Associates, details the amount of additional jobs and revenue that will come to Santa Clara County — where Apple is headquartered — as a result of the construction project. Apple expects to hire more than 7,000 new employees by 2016 to fill the office — bringing the company’s area staff to 23,400. What’s more, Apple projects that it will support more than 41,000 jobs in the county “through expenditures by Apple and Apple employees.”

Apple says the new campus will lead to $32 million in additional property tax revenue annually, and the company plans to pump $66 million into public improvement projects around the campus and surrounding areas.
