    Still probably a bit down the road, but there is a supercharger projected for Raleigh on the 2016 map. Just looking at the map it's hard to make out where it will be. Accuracy is sometimes quite a bit off with the projected sites, but I made an overlay to show where it currently falls, which is pretty much right in the center of Raleigh. I doubt it will be in the center, but who knows. My first guess would be the Crossroads area. Just thought I'd go ahead and start the thread so we can track it.

    I've been wondering where this one would end up. As far as I can tell Wake County, City of Raleigh, and Town of Cary don't have online permit search capabilities unless you know the permit number, so hard to find out that way.

    Crossroads area is certainly a possibility and getting in and out is not too bad if you're coming from 40 or heading back towards 40 because you can bypass Walnut St, but parking in Crossroads is pretty crowded so I wonder where they'd put it. Also not a huge amount of food. There's more stuff over by the Carolina Ale House, but that's a pain to get to because it involves Walnut.

    Another possibility is Cary Towne Center. Easy access from 40 and plenty of parking, but again not much food besides the food court.

    Since Tesla seems to like putting SC locations near outlet malls, I thought maybe they'd put it in the outlet mall on Airport Blvd, but that place is a ghost town.

    I think a better choice would actually be Southpoint, but that's technically Durham and might be too close to Burlington.

    I'm actually not sure which path they are trying to augment by putting a SC in the Raleigh because it seems like you can get between any of the locations around us pretty easily without having to stop here. I guess only time will tell. :)

    City of Raleigh permit search lets you put in just street name and it will pull back all permits on that street so at least suspected areas could be checked.

    devservices: View Permits

    edit... Now I'm screwing around with all the online tools for wake county, which are both interesting and infuriating, and stumbled on the original corporate certificate to do business here, signed by Musk. Nothing special, just thought it was interesting.
