SpaceX said it plans to use the land to store rockets for refurbishment and reuse. An expansion of the company's Florida facility would allow for faster turnaround of reusable boosters as well as provide additional storage space. As revealed by documents filed with authorities, it proposes the construction of a 67,222-square-foot hangar south of its launch sites in Cape Canaveral for the said objective.
Port Canaveral commissioners will meet on Wednesday morning to vote on an agreement to lease a two-acre parcel to SpaceX for five years.

SpaceX has a backlog of more than 70 missions, worth more than $10 billion, spokesman Taylor said.
While SpaceX missions - which were jaw-dropping when the first Falcon 9s landed on drone ships a little more than a year ago - now sort of feel both thrilling and boring, Musk's company upped the ante this past weekend, sending up and safely bringing back down onto drone ships two rockets in three days, off each coast, NBD.
