Apple Purchases Land for Expansion of Austin Campus

Wednesday July 18, 2012 11:32 AM PDT by Eric Slivka
Back in March, the State of Texas announced that Apple would be pursuing a major expansion of its facilities in Austin, committing to spend over $300 million to add 3,600 more workers at a site adjacent to its current campus dedicated to customer support, sales, and accounting.

With the final approval of tax incentives for the project coming in early May, Apple has officially begun moving forward with its plans. According to the Austin Business Journal, Apple purchased three tracts of land on June 21 to provide a site for the project.
Records at the Travis County Clerk’s Office show that McShane Development Co. LLC, through its Riata Vista LP entity, sold three tracts of land to Apple on June 21. The exhibits indicate that the land is in the Milwood Section 20 subdivision near Parmer Lane and Delcour Drive.
While the purchase price of the land is currently unknown, real estate records show that the land is indeed the 38.67 acres located between Apple's current facilities and Parmer Lane. The vacant land is currently assessed at nearly $7.4 million.

Oh, I'm going to Austin next week.

Can I go by there for anything or is it basically closed to the public?


It's probably closed to the public. It's not really a fancy Apple office. It's a building full of people on telephone support - no magic at all.

No...I was implying that it would not be '2 Infinite Loop'. Surely if there was a second Infinite Loop street (not that there would be) the address would still be 1 Infinite Loop as you dont start at 2...obviously!


Doesn't that depend on which side of the infinite loop the building is located? :)

Given that 1 Infinite Loop is over 1,700 miles away I doubt it ;)

This is the Austin Texas AppleCare site. Not the Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, California.


I think that was legitimate question. Just because they are far apart doesn't mean that cities can't share street names and numbers. Are you implying there is only one Main St. in the United States?
