    My crystal ball says this is the next Super Charger site, 7501 Leesburg Pike near (Pimmit Dr.) At Idylwood Plaza . It's just outside Tyson's, which concerns me about the Tyson's site, both pins are on the Tesla site though. V3- 8 Stalls.

    Jason's subs, Starbucks and Whole Foods are near by. The pictures came from a friend who didn't know how to show the trench line. So we get to look at Dirt pile. ;)

    Maybe not Tesla. Could be EVgo.

    There's a permit (#193080309) issued for an EV charging station here but it doesn't specify Tesla.

    The contractor has done several EVgo sites in Fairfax Co. recently as well as the Reston Supercharger. Hoping it's a Supercharger but looking for confirmation.

    These are the same guys who did Farmville. They also do Electrify America installs, but nothing is planned for them. Generally, outside California, EVGo doesn’t go above 4 stalls. Again, I think the chances are high on this being another Supercharger.

    There’s also the first applicant, who built the Haymarket and Leesburg Superchargers, with no EVGo or Electrify chargers on record

    I stopped by the site this morning to get some shots and check it out. Has that typical Tesla L shape. Power source follows further back. 9 parking spots have excavation behind them. No trailer space charger yet, but there are islands on both ends. Someone is going to replace some curb though. I forgot to mention one good restaurant located here is the Idylwood Grill and wine bar. Note the three phase right over head.

    It is a good location with pretty easy access off of 495 and 66. That shopping center can be quite busy at times. I am fan the Burger 7 in that shopping center.

    This is a great location. If Pimmit Hills and Vienna both have Superchargers, I think the Tysons area is pretty well-covered for the near future. It would still be nice to see something at Tysons Corner Center, but it seems like the mall isn't particularly cooperative with regard to EV charging ... not even a single L2 (aside from Tesla destination charging) on the property at this point.

    Don't think there has been confirmation that this is Tesla yet?

    If If @Reddy Kilowatt’s crystal ball says so, I believe it.

    Lanny has the newer version "Crystal Ball" than mine. His can zoom in better than mine. My resolution isn't that good. My amprobe says its V3.

    FYI start looking for new players.

    Wow, we were at that shopping center ALL THE TIME before the pandemic hit. Getting in & out (mostly out) can be tricky when it's busy, and the whole area can be a bit of a nightmare during non-pandemic rush hours. Lots of Teslas in the area, and Falls Church & Tysons have lots of high-density housing that might not support home charging, so there's a decent chance we'll see it full during peak times.

    But... within that lot, that's a great location for superchargers -- about as far from Whole Foods as you can get. Overall a very good location -- as noted, reasonably close to I-66 and I-495, with plenty to do while charging.

    I don't know how close others are to this location, but feel free to ping me to request updated photos, I'm 5-10 minutes away. It'll give me an excuse to drive my car!

    It will be full indeed, only 8 stalls. Getting to the point when every shopping or convenience center will soon have charging with other networks expanding as well. It has only taken a decade...

    I have mixed feelings on this location. Geographically it is great but in non-pandemic times, this lot is small and very busy so I am worried about ICEing. Hopefully I am wrong. This will be the closest v3 to me so it will be interesting to try it out.
