Boca Chica

SpaceX’s primary Starship manufacturing facility in Texas. Ground breaking took place in September 2014 as construction of the facility began.

The first Starship prototype, Starhopper was built and flown here. Since the original construction of Starhopper, the facilities at the base have under gone an expansion including the construction of two suborbital launch pads, a orbital launch pad and integration tower which are currently under construction as well as expanded production factilities, going from a single large tent for building Starhopper to multiple large tents and new buildings such as the Mid Bay and High Bay for stacking completed Starships together.

Boca Chica has also been referred to as “Starbase”.
