Buildings most likely will look similar to Giga Shanghai. Block like with the obvious truncated corners and many truck docks for just in time inventory of parts for manufacturing. Will be huge for sure. Giga Berlin looks to be developing into separate buildings instead of the conceptual single building. Will have to wait and see as the Lego pieces install continue. Am assuming for cost reasons Giga Texas will be steel frame structure not like Giga Berlin concrete.

I’m guessing the biggest building closest to the highway will be for Y & 3. Then the next biggest (middle) building will be Cybertruck. And the third for the semi.
Last fly by I saw labelled the Model 3/Y presses as in the building furthest from the highway. They're digging the foundations for presses now....HUGE! hole, Wow those things need serious foundations.

I saw that, but they did include a question mark on that. They seem to think that’s where the mega casting machine will be. And yes, it is a huge hole.

It makes sense for building C to be the 3/Y building since it appears to be the first priority right now. If the Cybertruck building were done today they wouldn’t be able to use it. But they definitely could use new 3 & Y lines right now.

I wish the resolution was better because I'd print a large copy for my wall. I notice the civil engineer's telephone number is listed. I wonder if they are being innundated with calls for a PDF set. I'm tempted to call myself.

Seems where I found these documents, the planning department removed them from accessing them just recently. (Wonder why?)

Usually you can order copies from the planning dept. They're public records.

Hahaha. I never noticed the tulips. Damn they must be 30feet tall- maybe those are Texas tulips!
lol those aren't tulips.. it is the sunlight hitting the tops of the tree's. Bottom dark section of the tree is in shadow. Its actually very accurate but this an issue with rendering software's, sometimes things are too literal. Also, you will never experience the building from this angle. I had a Professor in college who would not allow us to do any renderings above eye level for this reason.
