Apple confirms purchase of land in central Oregon

Posted: Updated:
PRINEVILLE, OR (AP) -

Apple Inc. confirms it has bought 160 acres in central Oregon and plans a data center there.

Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet confirmed the deal Tuesday to KTVZ-TV but declined to discuss any details.

The station reports that the Prineville, Ore., parcel purchased from Crook County for $5.6 million is close to a huge data center built by Facebook.

A property deed filed last week with the county clerk's office identified Apple as the buyer in a project previously code-named "Maverick."

It's too early to tell how many jobs will be coming to Prineville as a result of the data center.
