Tesla Aims To Finish Gigafactory in Sparks, Nevada Years Ahead Of Schedule

As reported by major news outlets in July 2016, Tesla doubled its construction workforce in a race to finish its gigafactory early so the company can achieve full production in 2018 instead of 2020.

The Tesla Gigafactory is located just 18 miles from one of MCFI’s new EB-5 projects, Legends Bay Casino. The recent creation of super factories, data processing centers, and warehouses at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center and nearby campuses is one of the many reasons why MCFI selected Legends Bay Casino for its Nevada regional center. MCFI believes that the growing economic vitality of the Reno-Sparks area will continue to endure and benefit not only Legends Bay Casino, but also the local community residents and other businesses.

“Even though some said it couldn’t be done, we managed to lay the foundation for a New Nevada: Nevada became one of only six national training sites for unmanned aerial systems. We attracted Tesla in one of the most competitive site selections in our nation’s history. We became the home to dozens of other national brands who now employ Nevadans in industries of the future – cyber security, medicine, aviation, renewable energy, manufacturing, data storage and more.”
