Tesla Factory Underway in Austin

October 18, 2020 2:51 pm

Buffington Homes builds in two communities of Austin TX homes that are located within minutes of the new Tesla Gigafactory in southeastern Travis County.

Development of the 2,100-acre parcel at Harold Green Road and Hwy 130 is moving along quickly. The factory will be the largest of Tesla’s auto-assembly plants.

Tesla recently bought an additional 381 acres adjacent to the original site and is rumored to be pursuing even more land along the highway corridor. The added acreage would allow access to the site from more points along area roads.

Intended to be more than just a manufacturing facility, the property will have natural areas and trails open for public recreation. Tesla CEO Elon Musk has promised an “ecological paradise” featuring green spaces, hiking and biking trails and a boardwalk. The property borders the Colorado River and will help preserve the river environment.

As expected, demand has increased for new homes near the development. Buffington Homes is ready to meet that demand. We build in two communities that offer quick access to the new site.

Whisper Valley

Tesla fans will feel right at home in this cutting-edge community of eco-smart homes. Designed to have a minimal carbon footprint, Whisper Valley homes use geothermal and solar energy. Each home is wired for Nest smart home technology and Google Fiber ultra-high-speed internet.

The community includes 600 acres of green space and nature preserves with walking trails and parks. Amenities include a swimming pool, fitness room and electric vehicle charging stations.

The completed development will have two schools, a transportation center, emergency services, stores, restaurants and businesses.

Besides Tesla, other major employers in the area include Dell, 3M, Applied Materials and GM Testing.


Conveniently located in Manor TX, ShadowGlen is only 10 minutes from the Tesla site. Round Rock and Pflugerville are nearby, and downtown Austin is just a short drive away via Toll 290.

ShadowGlen is a golf course community with other outstanding amenities including a new elementary school and a swimming pool with beach area, waterslides and splash pads.

This is a close-out community, so act now to claim your new home in one of Austin’s most popular communities!
