    Some key information from the Town Planing Commission meeting:
    • Game Creek Holdings is the applicant/developer, based in Littleton, CO
      • Tesla is confirmed as tenant
      • they also did the Littleton Service Center and another deal in California
    • Jimmy Choppa (spelling?), Design Manager from Tesla's retail development team came in from CA to answer questions
    • Building will be located on SE corner of McCaslin & Marshall
    • Metal, glass, and charred wood exterior
    • Windows will provide some visibility into service center activity from west side/McCaslin
    • 22,000 sq. ft. building usage will be approximately 30% sales, 70% service
    • 1 delivery truck of 7 vehicles every 2-3 days
    • ~172 parking spots, ~65 spots for visitors/employees, remaining ~107 spaces for on-site inventory storage (parking spot numbers changed with each person saying them)
    • Tesla has signed a 10-year lease with 3 5-year options to renew
    • No plans to build with a solar roof. They may retrofit rooftop solar at a later date.
    • Building will have 2 delivery bays
    The planning commission voted to approve.

    See these documents for further information.

    Great find! Glad to see there will be two service locations in the area.

    That will be fantastic! I'll bet they saved a boatload of money by locating it in Superior instead of Boulder.

    Is there any clue on when they'd start work on the site? I'm through there about once a week and I'm already getting unrealistically impatient that nothing's happening =)

    I walk by every day. Nothing yet, but the town board still hasn't officially approved yet. They meet tonight.

    I did not go to the board meeting, but the Daily Camera reports they voted to approve 5-2, and that the service/sales center will be ready sometime next spring.

    Glad it's approved, and I'll adjust my internal clock appropriately. Most likely won't be here before my 3, but will still be convenient. For me, 2019 is a race between this and Ikea "North" now...

    Yesterday the first crews showed up. Nothing much going on yet but there is a portable toilet on site now, so things are official. :)

    Looks like they are moving some dirt around now.

    Does anybody know whether or not they will have a supercharger at the Superior location?

    They will most likely have a Supercharger at the location. Since it isn't listed on Tesla's map, it will probably only be for the Service Center to use when servicing cars. That could all change though. Some Service Centers do have them and that location looks like it would be a good spot for one eventually.

    Ours in Tempe Az keeps a stall or two open for public use 24/7 (or at least they say they do).
    240/40A that is.

    The Denver Service Center has a Supercharger inside for service. They also have like a dozen HPWC outside but they are usually used for charging cars that are to be delivered. They would probably let you use them in a pinch but most of them are usually already in use.

    I know other Service Centers, such as the one in Salt Lake City, do have Superchargers for customers to use.

    Looks like they are pouring foundations, or at least building the forms...

    I was told by Littleton service that Superior was behind schedule and opening was now expected in Q2 2019. They really want Superior open to reduce the load on Littleton.

    A week can make quite a difference.

    They are making progress. I'm excited to have a service center a little bit closer.

    I was really hoping Colorado Springs would've been next on the list. :(
