Just found a permit for the installation of a 12-stall V3 Supercharger at 2656 N Elston Ave in Chicago. The permit was issued in April so be on the lookout for construction. Will add on Supercharge Info.

At Target, interesting. I thought it would be at the Mariano’s down the street when I saw the dot on Tesla’s map.
Target has a much bigger lot there, so it should be more convenient.

I drove around the Target parking the other day but I didn’t see anything yet. There‘s construction inside the parking structure but no obvious Tesla signs.

If it's easily viewable and you're in the area again, take some pics of the construction in the parking structure. That's pretty likely to be it and if we see what is being done, it may be easy to tell either way even if there's nothing explicitly Tesla related yet.

I hope it opens soon! I'm grateful its in the parking garage, so protection from the sun! Parking is free and its on the ground level, so easy access!

Great to see a Supercharger over this way...but man this area has become such a PITA to get to on weekends and evenings. I've never been to a Target more packed than this one.

I noticed this supercharger appear today on-screen and its definitely online. I was at like 60% soc so I couldnt really get any good showcase of the speed. A few others were charging as well. Looks like this is totally open.

To the right is a few L2 chargers (looked like chargepoint?) but I didn't think to look at them in detail.

As others mentioned, parking here is free and the garage is in the SW edge of the parking lot wedged between the target and Windy City Fieldhouse. Lower level so just turn right when you enter and you'll see it. It's a pretty good location sort of tucked away at the bottom of the garage so I'm hoping the chance that these get ICE'd is pretty low

@MarcoRP @Chuq @corywright I think it’s safe to mark this one as open.
