CAMERON COUNTY, TEXAS (NBC/KVEO) - Brownsville's Boca Chica Beach looks like it has for years, but soon the scene will change.

The world's first private, commercial launch site is to be located approximately 17 miles east of Brownsville's airport and five miles south of South Padre Island.

The Brownsville Economic Development Council says the project is expected to bring 500 jobs and $50 million in salaries to the economy.
