Musk’s New Texas Neighbors Alarmed by His Huge Development Plans
Elon Musk’s companies are opening facilities across the country that come with promises of skilled jobs and economic growth. But some residents of this mostly rural area near Austin are watching with alarm as farmland turns into industrial development.
Mr. Musk’s tunneling venture, the Boring Company, and space-transportation company known as SpaceX, are constructing massive buildings and digging tunnels on more than 200 acres of unincorporated land along the Colorado River. The billionaire’s ambitions there also include a company town, The Wall Street Journal has reported.
