Slidell, LA will be the next location going East from the Texas Supercharger Island. Good location at the intersection of I-10, I-12 & I-59.
I'm on the look out for the permit application...
Found a good spot. It's at the north edge of the North Shore Square Mall, there's a lot for sale that probably had a demolished building. It's very close to the on/off point for Interstate 10, it's within walking distance to a mall, restaurants, and hotels, and you can get easement onto the eastbound I-10 onramp if you really want to do an excellent job...

Has anyone checked on permits in Slidell recently? It's the missing link from Texas to the beaches of Destin, Florida. (Not counting Baytown, TX which Tesla apparently doesn't think is necessary based on their "precise energy modeling").
What's the attraction of Destin?
Besides the tasty Datil peppers...
Well, that's a new twist. I know "Tesla giveth" but didn't expect a "taketh away." - chalk it up to proofreading needed?Well, Slidell disappeared from the "Coming Soon" map on Tesla Motors website for about a week but it's back now.
Additionally, it shows a supercharger in Alexandria, LA in 2015 but it's not there on the 2016 map.

Where are those two, more northern 2015 SC sites? (I'm too lazy to zoom and toggle on my phone this morning)
The on-again, off-again "coming soon" icon for Slidell has been off again for the past week, but still shows on the 2015 map. Tesla supercharger team said Slidell will not likely be open this summer.
I have confirmation from the developer that the Slidell superchargers will be at Town Center. No word on time frame.I agree with you that would be a great location (right off I-12 BTW). However, being somewhat local I can tell you, unfortunately, that mall is on the decline (I don't understand why but all the big box stores have abandoned it).
I'm speculating the location will be here:

This is a brand new development called Town Center right off of I-10. http://fremauxtowncenter.com/
I'm still on the look out for permits.
