According to sources familiar with the project, Elon Musk has recently acquired thousands of acres of pasture and farmland outside the Texas capital, with plans to build his own town.

Musk has described his vision as a "Texas utopia" along the Colorado River, where his employees can both live and work. His tunnel operation, the Boring Co., has researched incorporating the town in Bastrop County, allowing Musk to establish regulations and expedite his plans.

The town, named "Snailbrook, TX," is adjacent to Boring and SpaceX facilities and will offer new homes with below-market rents to Austin-area employees. Some Boring employees, including the company's president, Steve Davis, have even discussed creating an entire city. However, representatives for Kanye West and Grimes, who are reportedly involved in the project, were not available for comment.

The town will require at least 201 residents and approval from a county judge to incorporate under Texas law. Musk and Davis have not responded to requests for comment. According to people familiar with the project, Elon Musk has purchased thousands of acres of land outside Austin, Texas, and is planning to build his own town there for his employees to live and work in.

The proposed town is described as a "Texas utopia" along the Colorado River, adjacent to the Boring and SpaceX facilities already under construction. The town would also include new homes with below-market rents for Austin-area employees of Boring, Tesla, and SpaceX. Some Boring employees have even discussed creating an entire city, including plans to hold an election for mayor.

Mr. Musk has reportedly purchased at least 3,500 acres in the Austin area, with some locals speculating that he may own up to 6,000 acres. The land purchases have been made through four limited liability companies connected to Mr. Musk's businesses or officers. Plans also include a private residential compound for Mr. Musk, potentially some distance from the proposed town.
