Apple is looking for more office space in Pittsburgh and New York City, according to multiplemedia reports. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Apple is in talks to acquire more than 90,000 square feet of office space in the Pittsburgh Sports Association building, which is 111 years old. The building is just one street from the University of Pittsburgh’s teaching building, Learning Center.
Bloomberg also reported that Apple recently studied Essex Crossing, a mixed-use development on Manhattan’s Lower East Side that will have 350,000 square feet of office space when completed.
In a December 2018 press release, Apple revealed plans to expand its workforce in all regions of the United States over the next three years, increasing its workforce to more than 1,000 in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City, and adding hundreds of new jobs in Pittsburgh, New York, Boulder, Boston and Portland.
Last month, Apple’s new $1 billion campus in Austin, Texas, opened in 2022. Apple said the park would initially house 5,000 employees and grow to 15,000.
