    Good location. In addition to Starbucks and The Habit Burger Grill shown in photo clip, Trader Joes is across the street.

    I used to work around that area. It is just around the corner from Ralph's supermarket and a pretty good ribs place down the street. From the Alameda exit off the 5 freeway, you will see CarMax. It is just 1 miles from the Burbank Media center with AMC Theaters and stuff.

    You mean like no construction at that site at all? I guess it could have been built pretty quickly. Did anyone charge there yet?

    Edit: After taking a closer look, looks like it's still coned off.

    Saw it Monday while on the phone with my wife discussing the opening of the Fountain Valley SC. Just happened to be looking to the right otherwise I would have missed it.

    Nope, nothing!
    I went out of my way to drive by & would have definitely taken pictures & posted them...I've never discovered a supercharger.

    Whoa! Great news!! Surprise, surprise, surprise! Any and everyone, photo journal this site. Let's see what it looks like. Is the Tesla logo out in front of the building yet? Has the building been painted? Any 'Service' sinage? Showroom decor? On a closer examination of the one photo, it looks like it may still need the distribution cabinets, superchargers, fencing, striping and utility transformer???

    No visible progress. Only wood enclosure is up now but no equipment or transformers.
    Signage on property remains the lease/sale sign. No visible Tesla signage - except for those on the supercharger posts.

    UPDATE:

    Construction of SC going full steam today. I asked the supervisor - and he said the plan is to complete construction of the SC by end of this week - next week latest.

    Note that this doesn't necessarily mean the Service Center and Superchargers will be open for business by next week (permits etc...). But its a solid sign of progress.

    Pics from the reception.

    I did not have an invitation though I did a test drive in Pasadena two weeks ago. I walked in about 7:45PM, stayed for an hour and got a few questions answered. The service area in my second pic is supposedly bigger than the one in Van Nuys.
