    The DC area is slated for a bunch of new superchargers by the end of the year. Has anybody seen any movement in any of the following locations? Or know more specifically, when/where they will be?

    - Washington, DC
    - Beltsville, MD
    - Gaithersburg MD
    - National Harbor, MD
    - Tysons, VA
    - Fairfax, VA

    It's too bad that they removed the supercharger from Montgomery Mall - that seems like a good strategic location.

    I used the one in the mall a fair amount, so I'll be very happy when Gaithersburg opens. I'm willing to drive by regularly to check progress once we get a location.

    As far as we can tell, there is no info. The 'locations' are only pins 'on' the names on the map. If anyone has found any permit or other hard info, please share!

    The eastern shore's Queenstown's location was moved 'up' the road to Grasonville recently.

    With the posting about a possible charger at the WAWA in Lewes (Rehoboth Beach), DE I thought I would look for WAWA's in the towns that are listed. I found a WAWA in Beltsville and a WAWA under permit in May, so probably under construction in Grasonville, MD. We shall see if these pan out.

    Has anyone seen anything about this downtown DC location? Any advice for searching for permit applications? I'm very curious where it will be located ultimately as the pin looks to me like a general indicator that they will install one 'somewhere' in the city by end of year.

    It's centered on the name, so, any location would be 'correct'. :D DC being so small on the map, someone needs to take up the cause that knows how the DC permitting structure works. (How to search, etc.)

    Any takers?

    (And, as you see, there are several other newer (meaning 2018) ones in DC, that's just the 2017 one!)

    Yea - am really excited they added those other locations. As an apartment dweller, I'm very interested in the first one though as I'm trying to figure out if it will be convenient for my weekly routine and in time for my M3 to arrive in early spring.

    If anyone has advice on how to search for the permit, I'm all ears on doing some legwork!

    The Gaithersburg site is under construction. It has its own thread already

    Yep! As is national harbor which has a thread as well. That one looks like it's getting very close to launch. Good to see things developing. If you're obsessed like me, it all feels very incremental, but when you take a step back the pace of progress is pretty impressive.
