Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently highlighted the need for more residential projects in the greater Austin, Texas area. Musk’s comments came after he posted a cryptic tweet that seemed to hint at some notable projects in the Texas capital.
The Tesla CEO initially posted a cryptic tweet that read “Austin++” on his Twitter page. True to the nature of popular Elon Musk tweets, the single-word post incited discussions about what the CEO might be referring to. Some of Musk’s supporters, for one, suggested that the tweet could be referring to projects that would significantly improve the Austin area, such as Giga Texas, which is on track to employ thousands of people.
Musk followed up his cryptic “Austin++” tweet with a post stating that there is an “Urgent need to build more housing in (the) greater Austin area!” This seems to suggest that the CEO is predicting an influx of people that Austin’s current housing infrastructure would not be able to handle in its current state.
