Apple Has Another 70 acres in Maiden


As you remember, a year ago Apple purchased a property in Maiden, North Carolina, for its data center. It was reported that the deal was about 183 acres of land, but today John Paczkowski from Digital Daily discovered that actually Apple owns another 70 acres on the other side of the street. The information was provided by Catawba County Geospatial Information Services.

"The scuttlebutt around Maiden is that the company intends to use it for office space. But that seems about as likely as Apple using it to build some Jobsian theme park. A more plausible explanation is that this parcel, too, will be used for data center space."

This week we have already wrote about the images found on the Flickr that reveal another Apple's data center next to an existing one, and it was suggested that the second facility will be built later by the company. Now, if Paczkowski's discovery is true, these rumors will be confirmed.

The already built data center in Maiden is five times bigger than Apple's current DC in Newark, California and will become a place to work for 3,150 people.
