According to a Wall Street Journal report, Elon Musk intends to create a company town for the workers of Tesla, Boring, and SpaceX.
Musk purchased 3,500 acres of land in Texas to create the town of Snailbrook, which is a play on the name of the Boring company’s mascot.
The WSJ article confirms that Boring employees have been given the opportunity to submit an application for housing by citing county deeds, emails, and internal communications. A two- or three-bedroom home would rent for about $800 USD per month.
It is most likely that the rumored town will be located in Bastrop County, close to Austin, where Elon Musk runs factories for Tesla, Boring, and SpaceX. 2020 saw the opening of a Tesla Gigafactory in Austin as a result of coronavirus restrictions.
The town would have its own mayoral election and a Montessori school.
