The Cupertino tech giant purchased space at the Raleigh Research Triangle in 2018. It plans to build a massive engineering hub in the city that will support high-tech development and other corporate operations.

However, it'll take years before the Raleigh campus is able to be used for work. In the interim, Apple is moving forward with plans to occupy more than 200,000 square feet of temporary space in the nearby city of Cary, according to MacRumors.

Based on plans filed with the local city government, Apple will be taking the entire seven-story "MetLife III" building. Although the plans indicate that Apple plans on building out the first three floors, it eventually intends to occupy the entire building.

Plans for renovation of the building were filed near the end of June and were approved earlier in July, so construction is likely to begin soon.

    Yup. Yesterday, I ordered dinner from Remote Workers Pizza Inc.

    The app is genius; you see every stage of the pizza being made. 

    Tony is preparing the dough in his kitchen
    Sarah is preparing the tomato layer.  
    Tony has couriered the pizza base over to Sarah’s. 
    Meanwhile, Mike is grating some fresh cheese. As soon as the base + tomato arrives at his parent’s house (he still lives at home) then he can do the sprinkling and send it in to Daisy to add the topping. 

    My pizza will be here sometime in the next eight or nine hours. Because sometimes things need to designed and built in a specialised environment with people working together. 

    Because remote working doesn’t work for every situation.

    No but like many companies they design products that require collaboration which cannot happen over zoom.

    $1bn is a high price for that collaboration, especially on top of the other Apple campuses.  I doubt it's necessary.

    But at least the marinara would be an open sauce.
