To put this into perspective, the space Apple is requesting is roughly two-thirds the size of the Pentagon.

The new location of the new Apple HQ is supposed to be revealed by the end of 2018.

The iPhone maker has placed the Research Triangle Park in North Carolina atop its list of possible sites for a future second campus, the local Triangle Business Journal is reporting, citing sources who claim to have knowledge of Apple's plans.

According to a report in The Washington Post, Apple has been searching for places to put hubs as it contemplates how to spend the $30 billion it has committed for new facilities and 20,000 new employees in the US over the next five years - and it looks like Virginia is on the list. It's in close proximity to three major universities-Duke, N.C. State, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill-and has a wealth of talent from people that Apple could attract to its company.

On paper, the North Carolina Research Triangle Park seems like a solid choice. Cooper has reportedly been negotiating an incentive package to entice Apple, but such a package is said to still need approval from the North Carolina state legislature. Apple is only seeking about 4 million square feet, while Amazon is looking for about 8 million square feet.
