    Starting to look like this one is ready to have its own thread.

    Anyone following the "Anyone wondering about the 15 new superchargers in Florida?" has already seen this news, but I'll put it here so we can share updates as anyone hears anything.

    On Facebook Blakeleigh Bagwell reports:
    And some info Larry dug up about the shopping center (feel the need to point out on his behalf - he's just sharing info about the shopping center - I don't believe he is confirming anything about the supercharger location):

    I grew up in the area and will use this often visiting family (probably monthly). It's a terrific location and a valuable addition to the FL network. Literally off the top of my head, you can walk to:
    -Starbucks
    -Whole Foods
    -Steak n Shake
    -Jason's Deli
    -Panda Express
    -Denny's
    -World of Beer
    -Tabouli Grill
    -Cold Stone
    -Moe's (still there?)
    -Jersey Mikes
    -Five Guys
    -Subway
    -Publix
    -Wing Stop
    -Cranes Roost Park which had a regular food truck event as of a few years ago
    -Miller's Ale House
    -Seasons 52 (I think the 2nd one ever... Maybe the 3rd)
    -Bahama Breeze

    And I haven't even gotten to the big shopping mall and its attached movie theater.

    Anyone in the area -- keep an eye out and post any markings painted in the parking lot!
    Expect it to be real close to the starbucks.

    Hi Seth,

    Thanks for starting this thread. Since the proposal hasn't yet been approved I've added a question mark to the title.

    Yes, I am not confirming any information regarding the approval of the Supercharger Station. I am merely providing a map of the proposed shopping mall.

    As Seth requests, if you live nearby, please occasionally check out the Renaissance Centre for any construction work that may mark the location of the "Coming Soon" Altamonte Tesla Supercharger.

    Larry

    This one would be perfect for many of my trips to Florida. I cannot wait for it to come online.

    An I-4 Supercharger. _The_ I-4 Supercharger? Obvious value would be for people who need to visit Orlando, as well as for people who're traveling from North East Florida to Tampa.

    I was in the area and drove all around the anticipated Renaissance Center location. I didn't see an evidence of construction anywhere. I'll check periodically as I'm in this area almost weekly.
