    They don't buy the real estate for any of the Supercharger locations unless they already own the property for some other reason like one of their service centers.

    Went on my first SuperCharger recon mission today, looks about the same, doesn't look like any wiring is in conduits, Tesla equipment is onsite.

    Hm, and do I see some wood forms or braces on the Supercharger conduits? And the blacktop looks cleaner...although we did have some rain... But I'm pretty sure that there's some wood forms around the conduit now...

    Forms for the stalls are in place. Looks like 4 per side rather the usual straight 8.

    Conduit run to nearby transformer behind my location.

    Swung down to check status around noon, no real visible change beyond some metal on the concrete forms:

    Looking at the most recent photos from @Lanny and @Mirlen it looks like there are 5 chargers and 10 stalls total, not the 8 stalls noted previously. (Hey @BlueShift - got an update for you...)
    :) - more capacity is always good news!

    I am probably mistaken but the spacing looks a little off (too close together) based on my experience with most common parking lot striping. Of course sometimes existing parking lots are striped with wider spaces than others but that is usually a pleasant surprise and not the normal trend.

    As veterans of Newark will tell you, bad stripe painting is a celebrated tradition around here.

    Needed some quiet time with Musk Rat so drove on down. Zero change from my last update on 8/4/17, no transformer.
