Apple will reportedly build its huge new East Coast data center in Maiden, N.C., according to local media and Data Center Knowledge.

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.
