    A new DA has gone in on the City of Sydney's site for what appears to be a delivery centre, also a second Sydney service centre, in Alexandria - along with six 24/7 supercharger stalls.

    It is at 118-124 Bourke Rd, Alexandria 2015.

    DA link: City of Sydney - Online Business

    Location in the context of CBD/Airport:

    Will send this through to supercharge.info now :)

    Nice find, Chuq. I suggest anyone interested download the "Statement of EE + Appendices" document from the City of Sydney DA page above. That 101 page document tells you everything about the proposal. It will be a service and distribution centre with 6 supercharger bays. It will not be a showroom or retail centre.

    New cars will be shipped by truck from the Port of Sydney to the centre, they claim 2-3 cars per day during busy periods and 1 per week in quiet periods (?). The SoEE has full architectural plans in it and lots of other information about how the site will work.

    The SoEE has some clunky writing in it - it looks like no-one from Tesla proof-read it. Things like "Tesla was launched with the ‘Roadster” battery technology". Er, no.

    Alexandria is not far from me, so this will be where I will pick up my Model 3!!!!

    Now this is a really exciting development.

    Dear Moderator,

    I would suggest that this thread become sticky until the site is built.

    This is very exciting. Can't wait actually. This will be my preferred place for service - just a stone's throw away from where I live.

    Surprised they've only gone with 6 SC spots. It seems like SC's are getting bigger everywhere else in the world in preparation for model 3. 6 seems a little underdone for a service centre where Tesla owned cars tend to take up most of the spots

    It's not a bad start, they can probably add more pretty easily if it's their own site. Star City only had 4, so this is actually more.
    It's a great location too, the city would have been a PITA.

    It looks like they went with 6 because there is an existing fence and gate on the site, and precisely 6 spots are outside that gate. It means they can lock up the site securely and have the SCs available 24/7.

    No doubt they'll have a stack of HPWCs inside for topping up customer cars.
