but building a booster at KSC is even easier, since starships and boosters are 90% the same parts and the same build processes
And that depends on whether the launch table requires the extended concrete curing time that BC's did, because that was the major pacing item at BC.

Besides the fact that in general you can begin working of a freshly poured structure within a day or 7, and in all but the weirdest situations concrete is considered "fully" cured in 28 days, it's just not how construction schedules are done. Now the welding and fitment of the launch table is a very long process that probably can't be improved by very much.
If they plan to send 1,000 starships to Mars, they will need more booster build sights regardless.
Do we know if the launch viewing tower from the original plan years back is still going to happen? Or is that basically cancelled now.
