Apple Plans $1 Billion Austin Campus Powered by Renewables

The new campus will include 50 acres of preserved open space and, like all Apple facilities worldwide, its workspaces will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy.

Apple is planning to expand the company’s operations in Austin, Texas, including investing $1 billion in a new North Austin campus.

Currently the company’s Austin facilities can accommodate 6,200 employees, making it the largest group of Apple employees outside headquarters in Cupertino, California. The new Austin campus being planned about a mile away at Robinson Ranch should have workspace for 15,000 employees in the future.

Apple’s newest Austin campus will be located less than a mile from its existing facilities. The 133-acre campus will initially accommodate 5,000 additional employees, with the capacity to grow to 15,000, and is expected to make Apple the largest private employer in Austin.
