    Cupertino-based Apple is believed to be expanding its presence in San Jose.

    The Silicon Valley Business Journal is reporting that Apple bought a 43-acre piece of what’s now an empty lot in the 2300-block of North First Street.

    Apple reportedly bought the property for $138 million, but there is no official word yet on what the tech giant has planned.

    Public records show the land could eventually become the site of an office and research campus that could have as many as 15,000 workers, the Mercury News reports.

    This new purchase follows Apple’s acquisition of a 290,000-square-foot building also in North San Jose.

    Apple hasn’t had an office in San Jose since the late 1980s.

    In a statement Tuesday, a spokesperson for San Jose's Office of Economic Development said, "We're excited to welcome Apple to San Jose."
