It’s called "Project Pillar" and it's the worst kept secret in Central Oregon: Apple has submitted applications for permits to build a data center in Prineville.

 

Steve Forrester, Prineville City Manager says they are very excited about the Apple project, as it bring another high profile business to the area.  “What it means for the community is just tremendous. And this is bigger than just Prineville in that we have a lot of folks up there doing construction from the Central Oregon region, you know the tri-county region. But what I’m saying it's great for Prineville, we need the boost; it's a great opportunity for us to diversify our economy, but it's also good for Central Oregon and its good for the state."

 

Forrester says the opening of the Facebook facility has made a noticeable difference in downtown core of Prineville businesses; and with their proposed additions, things are looking good for the city.

 

Forrester says he believes that apple should begin construction within a few months.
