RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – The silence continues about whether Apple will build a new campus in the Triangle.

Apple’s latest earnings call came and went Tuesday with nary a mention of what’s happening with the new campus that CEO Tim Cook has said would be built.

And Apple tells WRAL TechWire that nothing is going to be said – at least right now.

“Thanks for reaching out, Jason,” Josh Rosenstock of Apple’s communication team, told WRAL TechWire contributing write Jason Parker via email.

“We don’t have anything to add to what’s been discussed.”

WRAL TechWire and WRAL have been reporting since June that the Triangle is one of two sites Apple is considering for the campus. The other is the Washington, D.C. area, according to the Washington Post.

Cook also recently recommitted himself to the project as well as adding 20,000 new jobs.

Numerous sources who have spoken to WRAL TechWire and reporters on the basis of anonymity have said that Apple would pick North Carolina for the campus as well as a new office in Cary and expansion of its data center operations in western North Carolina. The General Assembly recently approved changes in state tax incentives that appeared to focus on the Apple project.

So what is going on? The mystery that WRAL TechWire wrote about Tuesday morning in advance of the call will continue.

Mum’s the word

After the  conference call Tuesday evening during which Apple announced another strong quarter, Apple’s Rosenstock told Parker that no decision has been made and there is no timeline for any decision.

No questions were asked by the Wall Street analysts about the campus during the call.

Apple’s response to Parker’s questions and the silence about the project in the earnings discussion thus means a continuing wait for a decision at the same time Amazon continues its deliberations about the 50,000 job HQ2 project.
