    All - I proposed a ribbon cutting next weekend - the last of the quarter - but after some feedback thought better of it.

    I'll try to post here once a date is nailed down. Likely the first or second weekend of January.

    That would be MUCH BETTER timing. We would be able to attend. Scheduling anything during the holidays is a surefire way for no shows and a bust of an event.

    Now shows as "Open" on supercharge.info!!!! Great news! Now that it's open, I'm curious as to how it works in terms of the cost of the garage. Is it $5 per hour ?- or is there a chance it may be free with validation at Target or Whole Foods (the Sprouts/Target lot on Broad St. works that way - something like first $10 free with validation by Sprouts)? Will try it out sometime this weekend!

    It was live today. I charged successfully at 12:45pm.

    Sweet! Any preference on Jan 5, 6, 12, 13?

    The garage is $5 for the first hour but has a 15 minute grace period. In these cold temps and at a max of 72kw, 15 doesn't help much. Not sure about validation from Target or Whole Foods.

    I stopped by and charged around 12:45 and like you said, it sure is live!

    .12/min or .24/min

    Per Tesla website there are different rates for above and below 60 kW.

    No I must have gotten some bad information. The Whole Foods apparently moved a few blocks away, and now a target is at their old location

    Tesla shows this as a 24/7 site. But, Plugshare posts indicate the garage closes at 10 PM Mon-Fri, and earlier on the weekends.

    I attached the parking fees. The garage closes at 6 pm on weekends, according to the posted signs. That’s frustrating.

    Really? That's crazy. So you cant enter the garage after 6?
