    It is the former Gold Coast BMW/Mini site.

    Superchargers are expected but it’s not confirmed if they will be for public use. (Probably will be).

    The location is expected to be open by Christmas this year.

    Massive site for Tesla in a great location. Can't imagine them needing the whole thing.
    82-84 Nerang St, Southport

    Is it long-term though given the Amir Prestige ad in the 3rd pic?

    Sydney Alexandria still doesn't have superchargers after 2 yrs despite being included in the original DA.
    And this site is only 10km from the Broadbeach superchargers.

    Alexandria have two Superchargers but they are for the Service Centre only, not for public use

    D12E61A2-DEC3-4F6B-B3AD-4EA3BD9BCCDE.jpeg They are not taking the whole building. This is approximately what they are taking.

    They are doing a decent refit so it’s not short term.

    The site must be happy now that it gets to have decent cars on its pavement rather than bmw’s

    Tesla move fast. They have already moved in to part of the site and will be running test drives from there as at tomorrow whilst the permanent showroom is being done.

    Great news... since superchargers are speculative I won't add this to supercharge.info for the moment. Of course I look forward to more news on this front!

    Apparently no Superchargers “at this time”.

    I popped in today for a quick chat and there were a couple of nice chaps that had come down from Brisbane. They said it will be much bigger than Brisbane with the service centre having 4 hoists. Charging on site will not be for public use. They said about 6 week's for the basic fit out.

    I asked how people are going to know they are there and they said if someone calls up and then they can tell them they don't have to go to Brisbane for a look/test drive. That said, they only have the one car inside at the moment, so if you want to look at something different you'll still have to go to Brisbane :).

    and Brisbane has only got one car in the showroom also - bit short on cars by the look of it.

    Take the supercharger bit with a grain of salt. The lease period I can vouch for.

    Yeah, I'm definitely putting comments from yourself and others in here, over what I would read in the GC Bulletin... even if they happened to get access to the plans, they'd probably see a supercharger cabinet for internal service use only, and call it "a supercharger" in the article without context.
