    Tesla's updated map shows a new supercharger location in Northbrook,IL coming in 2018. Northbrook Court would be handy location given it is kind of midway I-94, and I-294 and they both have full interchanges on Lake-Cook road.

    Can't find any permits online with or anything indicating a possible location. Any body have any idea on what the location might actually be?

    Without any clues there's no way to tell. I have a feeling it will be farther north, possibly up by the 294/94/Lake Cook exchange. There's a already a bunch of chargers at Abt, fairly close to the southern end of Northbrook. The only other possibility would be the NE area of town near 94; steering charging traffic away from the service center. Possibly Village Square or Northbrook Court.

    There may not be a supercharger location there yet--but just noticed that they are adding another 6 more Volta J1772 stations there in addition to the 2 that are there already. Seem to adding 2 more stations at each common mall entrance. Not operating yet--but look close to being finished.

    72kW ubran chargers would make sense at Northbrook Court. Anything to not have to use the chargers at the Highland Park SC.

    I would not count on this happening any time soon. Eight months later and I cannot find any permits or the like for Northbrook. Really could use now that HP is pretty much offline. Kind of a big hole from Skokie/Glenview all the way north to Pleasant Prairie.

    Interesting Tesla now shows online a new separate supercharger location coming to Highland Park in 2020. HP service center shown separately--so I'm assuming this is not their old 4 station ones being rebranded or opened for general use again. Northbrook one still on map now with 2020 date in place of 2019, which was in place of 2018. They have also added a Buffalo Grove one coming in 2020 too.

    To see any of these locations, anytime soon, would be a start--the area has turned into a supercharger desert since HP service center taken offline. Can't find a single pending planning/permit application, in any of these towns, so I don't there will be much happening soon.

    Word from the Highland Park service center is that the new HP SuC location will be at Target. I don't know if that's official or not.

    I hope they actually know something, cause i see numerous post on these boards where people presume location is a "Target" because of wording "Target opening 2020.":(

    I have heard reports superchargers going in at the mall with REI and Whole Foods near Willow and Waukegan.

    Can anyone confirm ?

    8 station (looks like V3) is under construction at Willow Festival, Northbrook, IL 60062 – Retail Space | Regency Centers. Equipment already on site and mostly installed. It is in parking lot about half way between REI and Lowe's.

    Supercharger in north suburbs is certainly needed--but I'm not sure about this location. Good for local charging but it is a 5+ minutes from 94 (Willow exit), and at least 10-mins from 294 Willow exit.


    Approx. coordinates are 42.107745,-87.802496

    I agree the location is bizarre. Very far from 294 but 3 miles from 94. Its also very close to the Superchargers at Abt in Glenview. Although those are urban SCs. These definitely look like V3 since the cables are so thin.

    I drove by today and saw some ComEd trucks there, so I decided to each out to Regency and see if they would provide a progress update.... good news! They told me as long as the work passes permits, these will be operational and open the first week in March (by end of next week!). Enjoy everyone.
