CAMERON COUNTY - Four more lots in the Boca Beach area are no longer on the market after being purchased by California-based Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX).

With the purchase of the most recent real estate, the firm now owns 101 lots in Cameron County, comprising nearly 41 acres. The firm also has 56.5 acres under lease.

SpaceX is proposing to develop the world’s first private, commercial vertical launch site and control center on the land. It is awaiting licenses and permits for the site, where it has proposed up to 12 launch operations a year through at least 2,025.

The Federal Aviation Administration is currently preparing the final environmental impact statement.
