Supercharger - Malta, NY

A new Supercharger is planned for the Stewart’s Shops in Ballston Spa, NY. I found a discussion from the nearby town of Malta in where a Site Plan Amendment was discussed for the Stewart’s Shops. It was also said that Tesla is working to get a Supercharger installed at this location (likely 8 stalls).

My wife’s family used to live off this exit and we stopped at that Stewart’s frequently. Stewart’s have decent food and coffee and good ice cream for a gas station. The area is safe. I believe there is a hotel across the street and the Saratoga attractions are not that far away. Good location for a charger in my opinion.

Yep. I can confirm the chargers however not sure if they work yet.
The "TESLA" lighted lettering at the top isn't on, so they for sure aren't functional yet. It's not a guarantee that the stations work if those lights are on--the charging posts can have electricity without being set up to actually charge vehicles--but when they're off it means that the stalls aren't energized yet.
Any update on this? I’m looking to get an apartment in the area. Aiming for january, but as of now I NEED a garage to charge my car.

If the supercharger is built prior than I can open my options for different apartments.
Just my two cents, but I would strongly recommend finding an apartment with charging either way. You're probably not going to love having to do 100% of your charging at a local Supercharger, and it'll cost you substantially more than home charging too. People can and do get away without home charging, but Superchargers are really mostly meant for long-distance travel and it'll be a much better experience if you have a place to charge at home.
