Tesla buys former Cronulla Furniture and Bunnings site at Taren Point for $15M​

Electric car maker Tesla is coming to Sutherland Shire.
Tesla has purchased a property at 100-104 Parraweena Road, Miranda. The area is commonly known as Taren Point.
The site is next to Cronulla Carpets and was occupied for decades by associated firm Cronulla Furniture and more recently by Bunnings during redevelopment of its Caringbah warehouse.
The property was sold off-market for $15 million in December last year.
Selling agent Trent Gallagher, of commercial real estate firm Colliers International, declined to comment.
The fitting out of the building with a showroom and service centre began early this year, but is being kept under wraps, with windows covered.
Construction company Schiavello has erected its own signage until the project is completed, which is expected to be in about two months.
Schiavello undertook a similar project for Tesla at Chatswood.
Tesla also has a centre at Alexandria and another is on the drawing board for Parramatta.
Tesla has released no information about the Sutherland Shire project and is yet to respond to a request for comment.

That site is huge. It was a mid-size Bunnings!

What could they possibly do with all that space? Indoor supercharger with gym, toilets, showers and lounge? Delivery centre for, what, a few hundred cars per day? National spare parts inventory? Smash repairs / body shop?

Edit: never mind about the gym and showers. There’s a Gold’s gym franchise two doors down.

Massive site, and interesting to see Tesla purchasing it.

Looks like it's got a pretty big outside area, so possibly a site for superchargers (the South of Sydney needs some) (albeit none at Alexandria or Chatswood).

But it's a bit of a deviation from the Princess Hwy for those travelling elsewhere in Sydney.
