Apple expands in Austin
Apple is constructing another 80,000-square-foot building, adding on to its already sprawling Northwest Austin campus. The company currently has a lease on 275,000 square feet in the three buildings in CarrAmerica Realty Corp.'s Riata Crossing, near U.S. 183 and Oak Knoll Drive. Groundbreaking will likely take place this summer. The new building will house support services, which currently occupy about 40,000 square feet of the currently occupied space. Apple advertised earlier this year for iPhone technical support jobs in Austin. When asked for information, Apple said it does not comment about its operations and did not say how many employees it has in Austin, nor whether it would mean more hires in the area.
