The 3rd Sprung tent is set on an extra container level, plus it looks like the door is a few feet higher relative to the top, so I think the door from ground level is a good 12 feet higher than the other tents, probably for a reason.
I'd like to have a thread dedicated to the manufacturing facility in Boca Chica. There's one for the launch facility and one to discuss the actual Starships as they are built, but wanted to create a thread to align with the threads for Port of LA as well as the Cocoa site. I think this could be a good place to add site maps and flyovers, as well as discussion specific to the site itself. Mods, if you don't agree feel free to relocate / remove / etc. To kick things off I wanted to get a square footage of the site as it evolves There's missing data but if folks have info I'll edit this header post to reflect it. I shouldn't be, but I'm amazed by the fact that they are staging parts for yet another Sprung structure (at least one more).This puts manufacturing space at: (anyone who has some square footage please add - I'll edit this post with the numbers)For each Sprung structure is 150' x 255' = 38,250 sq ft x 3 = 114,750 sq ft. Plus the long Big Top tents which I believe is 150' x 260' = 39,000 sq ft.Plus two smaller Big Top tents at: ?Plus the third Big Top tent under construction, which I believe is the relocated barrel forming tent at: ?Plus the Propulsion building at: ?Plus the new metal structure with the bridge crane at: ?Plus the High Bay at: ?Plus the V Bay at: ?
the other thread isn't just about the launch pad. It's about the "launch site" which is what we called all the SX Brownsville metro area property...
... back in 2013 or whenever they started purchasing property.

I did a better measurement of the Ground fabrication building. I was pretty far off on length. It looks like 95 by about 125 feet.
A few more pics taken at the build site. A new building going up out back.
We have a new Metal Structure going up in front of the flat long tent(second picture from original quote)looks a bit smaller, than the "GROUND FABRICATION"-Building, but constructed in similar style.Quote from: bocachicagal on 05/14/2020 03:41 amA few more pics taken at the build site.
