FUD Zilla heard rumors that TSMC has plans to set up shop in New York State. If it gets the green light, the state may become home to a new 3.2 million square feet multibillion-dollar chip manufacturing plant.
Azalea was a code name given to the project by Deloitte which is conducting a site search in New York State. It has not said which company it is site searching for, but now it appears to be TSMC.

The multibillion-dollar project would involve 3.2 million square feet of construction and employ at least 1,000 people. According to confidential documents obtained by The Business Review Deloitte has looked around the Luther Forest Technology Campus, in Saratoga County, and a 430-acre site called the Marcy Nanocenter, on the campus of SUNYIT, in Utica.
