    Per @EdA (LMB was also at this meeting) the Dedham Board of Selectman tonight approved a Tesla dealership license and service center at 840 Providence Highway, Dedham, MA. This is the site of the old Owen Lincoln dealership. It is less than a mile off I-95 a.k.a. MA Route 128 and less than a quarter-mile from the Legacy Place mall.

    Per Ed (and LMB) at the meeting, it will have 8 Supercharger stalls.

    As former "shot heard around the world" resident, this is great to hear. Thanks for posting.

    Holy moley, fo reals?? That would help me out soo much (no garage, driveway, or dedicated street parking here). Will they let anyone use them or will it be like Watertown's HPWCs, where you need to call ahead and thus are limited to store hours?

    The (8) Supercharger stalls will most certainly be available 24/7 to all.

    8 stalls too, like the rest around here. I'll surely be stopping by once in a while!

    It would be nice if a local would drive by and give updates on the site. I don't expect anything to start in a month or so and done perhaps by the end of June - but this is speculation.

    I'm 10 miles away, and go to the COSTCO at the end of the street, so I drive by it once in a while, I'll keep an eye out, or might just call Matt :)

    I suspect there are a lot of us within 10-15 miles, and am fighting "can't believe it" mode, this close to Boston, inside the 128 loop.

    MA Teslas could significantly close on the "10% supercharged watts", that I believe the company averages.

    This is the crusty, old, Lincoln dealership. Maybe they'll redo the facade.

    They will do significant upgrades to the site, including greenery.
    They have a 10 year lease.

    spoke briefly with Matt late today, they are going to renovate the old stealership, estimated to take 2 1/2 months, thinks it could be May for the service center/SuperCharger opening.. likely a complete electrical system upgrade as well for the site.

    Is Dedham replacing Watertown, or are they keeping 2 service centers open?

    I think they are going with 2 centers.

    It's my understanding, too, that they're going to keep both sites.

    When they go live with this one, I think it will finally be the impetus for me to enable SuperCharging. :biggrin:

    I drive the south side of the 128 loop for work so I can swing by and snap pictures, too, if this thread gets a drought.

    Very exciting news indeed!

    I drove by the area recently. Is it supposed to be where the Lincoln Dealership is?? It still looks very much in service. Ugly 60s-style building. Wonder if they'll update the facade.

    That's the place, they plan on making major upgrades including greenery.

    Lincoln has vacated the premises. Cars, furniture, gone.

    I thought the place was empty but when I went to take a photo of the service entrance garage door I saw 3 guys in an office all staring at me lol (hence why I don't have a pic of it). I gave them a friendly wave and left quickly. They looked extremely confused haha.
