Exciting news is on the horizon for Kyle, Texas, as Tesla, the renowned electric vehicle manufacturer, is set to make its mark by occupying multiple warehouses within the Alliance Industrial Park of the city.
Mayor Travis Mitchell of Kyle unveiled this remarkable development during his recent State of the City address. Taking to Facebook, Mayor Mitchell further confirmed the news by stating, “‘Tesla Kyle‘ is officially a thing.”
Tesla’s plans involve leasing buildings in the Kyle/35 Logistics Park, a project that commenced construction in June 2022. Located within the Texas Innovation Corridor, this expansive logistics park spans over 1 million square feet and serves as a hub for emerging businesses like Tesla within Hays County.
Mayor Mitchel expressed his thoughts during the announcement, reflecting, “I was thinking that over the development of this project that, eventually, potentially, we could get a major Tesla supplier or manufacturer to come and take down the percentage of this site. I’m sad to report that [it] did not happen. What we got instead was Tesla.”
As per Mayor Mitchell, Tesla intends to lease three of the five buildings within the park, encompassing nearly 1 million square feet. Sources have hinted to The Austin Business Journal that Tesla’s eventual plans could involve leasing the entire park.
The City of Kyle’s official website details that the logistics park comprises five cutting-edge facilities, ranging from 140,000 sq. ft to 475,000 sq. ft.
While the specific purposes of Tesla’s presence at Kyle 35/Logistics Park remain undisclosed, it is plausible that these warehouses will play a supportive role in Tesla’s operations at Gigafactory Texas, where the production of the highly anticipated Cybertruck is underway.
The recent surge in Tesla Cybertruck sightings on car carriers, roads, and even during filming in Iceland suggests that the production of the innovative electric pickup trucks is picking up momentum under the guidance of Elon Musk.
