Data center construction
According to the reports, the facility will be built in Maiden, N.C., a small town of about 3,300 people in the western part of the state, about an hour north of Charlotte. The $1 billion price tag is supposedly what Apple’s investment will be over the course of nine years, and the facility is expected to employ at least 50 full-time employees. The North Carolina Department of Commerce estimates that the data center will create more than 3,000 jobs total, many of them related to facility construction.
