A ‘glass house’ project near Tesla’s Texas factory, which is believed to be a house for Tesla CEO Elon Musk, is being investigated by federal prosecutors, according to sources familiar with the matter.
The project has also raised concerns among Tesla board members, who have questioned whether Tesla funds and resources have been used for the personal venture.
The project is a large structure made of glass panels and steel beams, located on a hilltop near Tesla’s Gigafactory Texas in Austin. The project was reportedly started by Musk’s former chief designer, Javier Verdura, who left Tesla in July 2023. Verdura did not comment on the project or his departure from Tesla.
Federal prosecutors have subpoenaed documents and interviewed witnesses related to the project, as part of an ongoing investigation into Tesla’s finances and operations. The investigation is led by the U.S. attorney’s office in San Francisco, which oversees Tesla’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California.
Tesla did not comment on the project or the investigation. Elon Musk has not publicly spoken about the project or the investigation. He has previously said that he plans to sell most of his possessions and live in a rented house in Texas, where he has moved his personal residence and some of his businesses.
