Elon Musk wants to build a new city called “Starbase” around the SpaceX spaceport. The company founder shared this on Tuesday Twitter With. The SpaceX spaceport is located in Boca Chica Village in the US state of Texas.

The company has been developing its rockets and testing prototypes here since 2014. According to Musk’s plans, however, the SpaceX city Starbase should be significantly larger than the small village on the peninsula. The deal has already been shared with authorities in Cameron County, the regional county, the county council has confirmed to Business Insider. A decision on the construction project will be made in the next few days.

However, the city has not even been founded yet. According to the authorities, Musk must first submit a formal application for this. “If SpaceX and Elon Musk are to go down this path, they must comply with all state constitutional laws,” said Eddie Treviño Jr., a Cameron County judge, in a statement to Business Insider. SpaceX did not comment on the plans after being asked.

The space company is currently developing its new colossal spaceship called Starship in Boca Chica to one day send crewed missions to the moon and Mars. However, there are still some hurdles to be overcome along the way. One big problem: Boca Chica doesn’t have a public water system.
