Elon Musk calls for 'urgent' need to build more housing in Austin

Elon Musk calls for 'urgent' need to build more housing in Austin

Musk last week extended an open invitation for people to move to Texas and work for SpaceX.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk on Sunday highlighted the need for more residential buildings in the greater Austin area.

“Urgent need to build more housing in greater Austin area!” Musk tweeted on Easter Sunday.


The tweet came after he cryptically tweeted, “Austin++,” which led to speculation that Musk would soon be announcing new projects in and around the city.

The call came just a few days after he extended an open invitation to his followers and anyone else interested in moving to Texas and coming to work for the aerospace company.


Musk is making hiring investments in the city of Austin, Texas.

SpaceX revealed in a job posting earlier this month that it is breaking ground on a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Austin.

According to the posting, the candidate will help produce equipment for Starlink, SpaceX's global high-speed internet service made up of a constellation of satellites, and must agree to up to 25% travel to SpaceX's Los Angeles-area headquarters until the Austin facility is "fully established."
