“Everything is bigger in Texas” is a well-known old saying.

It looks like billionaire Elon Musk is about to prove the saying right.

That’s because Elon Musk is about to break ground on a massive “Project Amazing” in Texas.

Elon Musk made a lot of life changes over the past year.

He moved from radical leftist California to Texas, bought Twitter, and then released the Twitter Files.

A project big enough for the Lone Star State

Today, Musk has quite the project for his adopted state.

According to the Wall Street Journal, he is planning a town, maybe even a city, for his nearby Austin-area employees.

Finally fed up with California’s radical anti-business, anti-freedom government, Musk moved major portions of his Tesla, SpaceX, and Boring Company operations to Texas.

And as is typical of Musk, he’s not going halfway.

Musk currently owns as many as 6,000 acres of Texas land through limited liability corporations linked to him or his associates.

While that 6,000 acres number isn’t certain, what is certain is that at least 3,500 acres were purchased by Musk-linked entities. 

Of those, more than 200 acres in Bastrop County, southeast of Austin, are slated for a Musk housing development named Snailbrook.

The name ties into the mascot of one of Musk’s businesses, the Boring Company.

Musk named it that because he wanted his people to develop a tunnel drilling machine that could move faster than a snail.

Project Amazing and Gigafactory

Another name considered for the 110-home planned community for Musk’s employees is “Project Amazing,” which was recorded in a county application for the development.

Musk also wants to name streets with alliterative names, such as “Boring Boulevard,” “Cutterhead Crossing,” “Waterjet Way,” and “Porpoise Place.”

But that’s not all Musk has in mind for the Lone Star State.

There’s also the Tesla car plant called the “Gigafactory,” which is a 10-million square feet factory under construction near Austin in Travis County, Texas.

SpaceX and the Boring Company are also building warehouse facilities near the planned housing development.

As far back as one year ago, an internal company advertisement said Boring employees would be able to rent two or three-bedroom homes for as little as $800 a month.

This is far below the median local rental rates of $2,200.

They’ve already put up some modular homes, a gym, and facilities for outdoor sports.

“Overregulation, Overlitigation, Overtaxation,”

Musk is one of many prominent individuals who fled California in recent years. 

Boring and Tesla were once headquartered in California, but according to Musk, “overregulation, overlitigation, and overtaxation,” drove them to Texas.

When Musk first thought of moving from California to Texas back in 2020, he sought assurances from Steve Adler, the Austin Mayor at the time, that he could do business with minimal government interference.

In other words, no “overregulation, overlitigation, and overtaxation.”

Musk wanted to be able to move quickly once the move to the Lone Star State was made.

In fact, to say that Musk and his team want to grow quickly appears to be an understatement.

In conversations with The Wall Street Journal and in some internal emails that have come to light, Boring President Steve Davis and other employees of the company have been discussing the possible development of an entire city.

It looks like Musk is enjoying Texas.
