All this time, Washingtonians have been wondering about whether Amazon would choose the DMV for its second headquarters, and now the Washington Post reports that another tech giant is hunting for real estate in the area too.

Staff for Virginia Governor Ralph Northam reportedly proposed several Virginia sites for a possible Apple campus that would span 4 million square feet of office space and employ 20,000. The sites proposed include locations in Alexandria, Crystal City, Tysons, and Loudoun.

Apple announced in January that it would build a second headquarters somewhere in the country as part of a $350 billion U.S. investment, But Apple’s search has been much quieter than Amazon’s much-speculated-about HQ2 contest. Apple spokespersons declined to comment to the Post on whether Northern Virginia was being considered as a location for the campus. “They are much more secretive about their process,” a real estate executive told the paper.
