The development application and full plans are available on the Brisbane City Council site. Development Application for a Sales and Service Centre at 1058 to 1062 Ann Street Fortitude Valley, including 4 Superchargers. PD Online - Application Enquiry
Thanks for the info. Just the fact that there will be four Superchargers is a great thing and will complete the Melbourne To Brisbane East Coast corridor.

Looks good!

Are you sure the chargers are superchargers - not HPWCs? Doesn't specify in the plan - although you would expect if HPWCs there would be a LOT more than four.

Looking at the Artarmon SC in Sydney they have a whole bunch of HPWC's to the rear of the building in the service area and the Superchargers in front of the Sales area. I would be surprised if they didn't do something similar for Brisbane.

Superchargers confirmed: from the 'Town planning report' PDF:

Twenty-four (24) existing exclusive use car spaces for the proposed tenancy, including four (4) public use ‘Supercharger’ charging stations, that are intended to be accessible 24 hours a day (pending centre basement parking operating hours and negotiation with centre management)

Really great news for South East Queensland. Not a bad location either, being adjacent to other major stores, although I personally dislike driving to the central Fortitude Valley. At least Tesla will now have a fixed base local presence.

Thank you Tesla.

I recall reading somewhere that all new Tesla SCs were being built with 24/7 lounges, with the Melbourne one being one of (if not the) first.
Not all. However, among the first was the one in Blue Ash, Ohio, USA next to Cincinnati. I stopped there soon after it opened the same day that I downloaded AP-1 for the very first time. Thus teh experience is indelibly printed in my brain. I have been at a couple Supercharger/SC combinations that opened later that do not have 24/7 lounge access. My guess is that Tesla may have country or location-specific policies. Blue Ash, for example, is quite a long way from the nearest amenities.

Police Station only 500 metres away -- almost guarantees less security...in fact, I mean secure access. Not every visitor can have a "key to the door" especially if passing through at odd hours. I wonder of they can match it to the key fobs?

In Melbourne, you have to know a 4 digit code or get there when another owner is in the lounge.
