(Reuters) - Apple Inc will build a $1.375 billion data centre in Waukee near Des Moines, Apple and Iowa officials said on Thursday, with $207.8 million in incentives approved by the Iowa Economic Development Authority and Waukee city council. Apple will purchase 2,000 acres (8.09 square km) of land in Waukee to build two data centres. Speaking alongside Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds, Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook said the facility "will create hundreds of jobs for people in Iowa from construction to engineering." Cook said Apple will contribute up to $100 million towards a "public improvement fund" for the city of Waukee.
