Próspera at 10,000 residents before 2035?

Question

Próspera is a private charter city and ZEDE (Zone for Employment and Economic Development) on the island of Roatán in Honduras.

The project aims to attract both Hondurans and internationals by (among other things) being business-friendly, having the lowest taxes in the world and having a special legal system where residents can choose much of the legal code that they individually live under.

According to Scott Alexander, Próspera expects 10,000 residents by 2025.

Próspera currently contains only three buildings and has no permanent residents.

Predict the population in 2035 in this related question.

Will Próspera at any point before 2035 have at least 10,000 residents?

This question resolves positively if Próspera, or the same entity with a different name, at any point before 2035 reports that it has 10,000 or more residents.

For the purposes of this question, e-residents do not count as residents. Only people living on land managed by Próspera do.

If Próspera does not publish population data and such data is not available even upon request, then this question resolves ambiguously.
