Tesla Complex Expands with New Land Purchase

November 24, 2020 5:23 pm

The new Tesla complex will offer potential employment and recreational opportunities close to three of our communities of new homes in Austin TX.

The factory site is located to the southeast of downtown at Texas 130 and Harold Green Road in the Del Valle area. An additional 381 acres along Gilbert Road were purchased in August, adding to the existing 2,100 acres. Rumors are circulating that Tesla is in the process of buying even more land along the Texas 130 corridor. The goal of the new purchases is to provide enhanced access to the site from area highways.

Tesla plans to have the factory open in 2021. It will manufacture the Cybertruck and other electric vehicles. It should have a beneficial impact on the area’s economy as it employs about 5,000 people and attracts more businesses to the area.

True to Austin’s outdoors focus, the site will have public areas with walking and biking trails and a boardwalk. In fact, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said that the site will be “an ecological paradise” with nature and wildlife in abundance.

Dubbed a “gigafactory,” the Tesla complex will be especially convenient to three of our communities:

The Colony

Located in the Hill Country of Bastrop TX, The Colony offers natural surroundings and country living just minutes from the city. We’re now starting a new section in this in-demand community. Amenities include hiking and biking trails, sports fields and courts, a clubhouse with swimming pool and barbecue grills. The community is next door to McKinney Roughs nature preserve. Large 6/10 acre lots are available.

Whisper Valley

Whisper Valley TX is your home for high tech, eco-smart living. These environmentally sensitive homes have Google Fiber internet, EV charging stations and geothermal and solar energy systems. The community has 600 acres of green space, walking trails and organic gardens.


Just outside Austin in Manor TX, ShadowGlen is our golf course community and features a resort style swimming pool with waterslides, a beach and splash pads. Current sections are sold out, but we’ll have more in 2021. Join our VIP list to receive periodic updates on this popular community.

Live chat with Kyle or call 512-856-5664 today to get on our mailing list for ShadowGlen’s new section or to schedule a tour of our communities of new homes in Austin TX.
