Apple has confirmed its purchase of land in Prineville, Oregon, on which it plans to build a new data center. Citing Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet, KTVZ.com reports that Apple will build the facility on a 160-acre parcel it purchased from Crook County for $5.6 million. Knowledge of Apple’s potential plans for the site dates back to last December, when The Oregonian reported that the company was considering purchasing the land, which is less than a mile away from a large data center run by Facebook and another sizable facility run by Google.
