Apple to Expand Seattle Presence With 2,000 New Hires Over Next 5 Years
Apple is planning to expand in Seattle with an additional 2,000 new hires over the course of the next five years, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced in a statement today.
333 Dexter, where Apple is rumored to be expanding in Seattle
Apple has several offices in Seattle with teams working on iCloud, artificial intelligence, and Siri, and recent rumors suggested Apple was planning a major expansion, which has now been confirmed. From Durkan:
"These new jobs confirm what we already knew, we have the best talent and city anywhere. Apple's expanded footprint in Seattle is another example of the growing opportunity that exists for residents of Seattle and the economic powerhouse our City has become. Yet we know that as Seattle continues to grow, we must act urgently to address the pressures that follow - from tackling affordability to new affordable housing to increasing transit.
"By next year, an estimated 70% of jobs in Washington State will require some sort of post-secondary credential. It is my top priority that our kids growing up in Seattle today are prepared to fill the great engineering and computer science jobs that Apple announced today. That's why we created the Seattle Promise and the Opportunity Promise - so our youth are connected with resources and put on a path to the good paying jobs of Seattle's future."
Earlier this month, there were rumors that Apple was looking at leasing a large office complex in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood. Apple is said to be planning to occupy a two-tower building at 333 Dexter Avenue, which offers around 630,000 square feet of office space and could accommodate 4,200 employees.
Apple in late 2018 said that it would establish a new site in Seattle, which could be the large office building mentioned in rumors.
Apple already operates a major Seattle engineering hub focused on artificial intelligence and machine learning, and in 2018, expanded its office space at Two Union Square in downtown Seattle.

Who can afford to?
I'm pretty sure someone will find something negative to say about this because, well, it's ingrained in a lot of people to complain about everything.
I'm an engineer by training myself, but I've come up the hard way. I know better than to denigrate those who serve me my food, haul 18-wheelers across country to stock my supermarket, and diligently construct my electronics half a world away. Just because they didn't catch the breaks the technical elite did doesn't mean they're any less intelligent or worthy of respect.
Moreover, there's a difference between education and wisdom. As Jimmy Stewart once said, "I wouldn't give you two cents for all your fancy rules if, behind them, they didn't have a little bit of plain, ordinary, everyday kindness - and a little lookin' out for the other fella, too."

Worse than southern Ca now
This is a problem many big cities are facing - high wages of a large skilled/technical workforce push property prices up so only people earning those high wages can afford to live there, forcing out the nurses, waiters, workers, shop assistants, cleaners, security guards etc - the people you need to sustain a city.
