    Was on my way to the driving range by the gould center and I noticed a green construction fence in a parking lot. Decided to stop and check it out, and sure enough its a new supercharger!

    Great find :) Tesla label in the first pic, the 2nd pic that looks like the shape of a V3 supercharger cabinet base. I've updated supercharge.info.

    Thanks! Here's a better idea for the location - it's right off of Tuers Rd

    Google Maps

    Kinda weird: 3111 McLaughlin is a small Century 21 real estate office, with a parking lot much too small for this. I assume it's really the shopping center next door along McLaughlin.

    Anyway, this looks like a good location. It's sort of on the Leg of the Y, thus serving folks heading up the freeways into either the East Bay or the peninsula--or coming from those places.

    I agree with you, it took me awhile to file the permit because it was attached to the McLaughlin address and not the Tuers Road address that @lambodiablo205 posted above. Based on the pictures that were posted the chargers will be in the completely opposite side of the shopping mall vs the real estate office.

    Yup. I just used Google Street View and found the exact view @lambodiablo205 posted above. Here's how it compares to the permit address:

    Drove by yesterday, and there are no signs of either the cabinet or posts. The whole area is fenced off now though, all 20 stalls.

    They have the trench done, and the post cement base done.

    Had Jerk Pork Plate at Back-a-Yard for lunch today and walked over to look. Pouring concrete and lots of work happening. No crates yet.

    I see you're not the only one checking on the progress! (Guy peeking through the fence in your first shot.)

    Wow a lot of new construction going on with new Supercharger locations. Nice find. No Starbucks?? Maybe with v3 not enough time to grab a coffee :p:p

    actually I zoomed in on map and see a Starbucks on the Capitol/McLaughlin side of the shopping center.

    Drove by today - construction fences are still up, along with all the tools and machinery. The cabinet wall is completed, but i'm not sure if the transformer was installed or not. Couldn't really take pics, but i'll try next time in the area (hopefully its done by then!)
