Apple pushes further into Bay area with 43-acre purchase

Apple is apparently set to expand its presence in San Jose in a big way. According to recently uncovered documents, the company has purchased a 43-acre development site in the city, though it's unclear what Apple intends to use the undeveloped land for. The news comes from the Silicon Valley Business Journal, stating:

Apple Inc. has purchased a roughly 43-acre development site in North San Jose in a blockbuster real estate transaction that comes just weeks after the Mac maker established its first major presence in the city.

According to the Silicon Valley Business Journal, the development site is located next to a 300,000 square foot space that Apple leased early last month. The purchase also comes just a week after Apple also reportedly rented 76,000 square feet of office space in San Francisco.

In any case, between these recently leased office spaces and Apple's ongoing construction of Campus 2, it looks like the tech giant is expanding in the Bay area in a big way.
