Space X Marks the Spot in the RGV
RIO GRANDE VALLEY (AUGUST 20, 2014) – The entire Rio Grande Valley region worked together to get Interstate 69. It also collaborated to land a University of Texas medical school campus. No small feats.
Now, following Brownsville and Cameron County’s lead, the Rio Grande Valley will be home to one of the nation’s most exciting economic development projects announced in years: SpaceX.
SpaceX will build a vertical rocket launch pad and control center to support 12 proposed commercial launches a year from the Boca Chica Beach area. Brownsville beat other bids from around the country to get the SpaceX facility. It’s expected to create hundreds of high-paying tech jobs and make an initial capital investment of about $85 million into the area.
