“Construction work quietly underway at Apple’s campus in Elk Grove is for a major expansion that could mean several thousand new jobs, city officials say,” Mark Anderson reports for The Sacramento Business Journal. “The company is converting a 134,000-square-foot warehouse into a logistics operation. That move, along with addition of 1,450 parking spaces beginning last summer, points to many more employees, said Darrell Doan, the city’s economic development director.”
“Apple, which has pulled a series of building permits recently, is investing at least $13 million in the Elk Grove campus,” Anderson reports. “Work includes adding medical and dental facilities, a massage room, exercise room and yoga studio.”
“City officials say the company also is working with the city’s transportation department to evaluate bus service for Apple employees and subcontractors at the site through several shifts,” Anderson reports. “The Elk Grove site handles warehousing and distribution as well as a customer-support call center. Some reports have said Elk Grove delivers iPhone repair and logistics. The site also has the electrical capacity to support a major data center, so it could be a co-location center for iTunes.”
