Musk purchased the property when he first was looking of a site.  His family lived here for a while then he gave it to a private school.  There's been a lot of improvements lately and some use of 3-D printed structures here.

Here is the site

I notice they have strung new power lines over the road! Not great for shipping "tall" items vertically to Brownsville harbor!

Google Street View is ancient, there have been considerable changes in the property/facilities.  There have also been significant 3-phase power upgrades to those lines for the production area that follow all the way down that road.

Do we have any idea how much Starbase and Massey’s consume? Like, how many megawatts can those power lines handle?

They removed all the old power lines and guy wires crossing the road when they installed the new lines. Old and new are all underground where they cross the highway now, and the way is clear from the beach to the port.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Ah good - thats what I thought at the time...
I just looked at the picture in google streetview - showing building work at the school site... I forgot to think about the date of the streetview footage - I now see it was Aug 2021!!!! and the old power line.
And the school I guess is much improved now.

Answers vary. One of the guys putting them up told me they could handle 130kv, but they'd probably run 65. They're about 22 miles of bundled 7/8" aluminum pairs, however many amps that comes to. Pole spacing is really short at 200 feet, so they can run em pretty warm if they want.

Who is all the new housing SpaceX is building behind the village for?  Is it all still temporary accommodations for workers from out of town like the original airstream trailers and existing homes they bought were; or are some of the new build homes being offered for long term habitation by locals?

Perhaps related to the new FCC/ITU filing to test Ka band antennas aboard drone ships.
