    « Looks like the Vancouver Supercharger is now open. Somewhere around Burrard Street. Parking fees apply which I’ve yet to confirm rates » post by @doubles87 now I can’t see anything on Find Us and can’t see it on my car’s map because it isn’t in the garage.

    If this Supercharger is close to Burrard Street, I would guess it being at the CF Pacific Centre, which no one cared to check despite my mentioning it, but anyways. @BlueShift just a warning now let’s wait for a photo on one of your car’s maps.

    Is this lot gated or pay-by-plate? Hopefully it is accessible 24 hours.

    from the photo above, that's Waterfront Centre at 200 Burrard St - another CF retail/office property (not CF Pacific Centre mall).
    It's an Impark pay parking lot, #695

    looks like open 24/7, pay by plate: $3.50 first half hour, $4 each add'n half hour

    Just checked it out. Prices for parking as listed above and an interesting layout for sure. It is on P3.

    Saw the pic posted with the rates but I wonder if those are just regular parking rates or are they supercharger rates. ? Also the rates differentiate between daytime and nighttime but not weekend and weekday.

    wonder if it is free after a certain time or if it has weekend rates for supercharger users ?

    Anyone know if these will charge 80% off the battery in 30 mins - or are they slower/ faster ?

    Not bad, literally as close as it could possibly get to my condo downtown. Given that I've been looking to rent an extra spot anyway, perhaps I'll try to grab a monthly pass for this lot.

    I've seen the pull-thru layout at a few locations (Place Vertu comes to mind), but hadn't seen an urban one laid out this way yet.

    Can you post up the pricing for a monthly pass once you find it? Thanks

    The rate sign pic posted above matches parking rates for the whole lot listed on the Impark website link I posted upthread. Same website lists weekend rates are same as evening (6p-6a) ie $9 Max. 24 hr lot so doesn’t appear to be any free times. Unless there is signage at the Superchargers saying otherwise I’d say regular parking rates apply.
    Monthly pass $250

    $250 monthly but once you add taxes, Translink fee etc. it'll likely end up being around $300. Seems like monthly at this lot is currently waitlisted.

    This layout is also used in the Berlin, VT supercharger. I think this layout is great. It helps to convey the message that these are not parking spots.

    It only has 8 stalls? :( I think a city as big as Vancouver and with all its Teslas needs a slightly bigger SuperCharger. This one will be full 24/7.

    However, I see this is pay for parking. Ironic it costs more to park than to charge. So maybe some people just stop for 30 Minutes next leave. It might work out but I think there are still to many Teslas and not enough charges in the lowermainland.

    Thanks.

    If anyone happens to pop in and use it - please post up if there is any signage showing any supercharging specific rules / times / & rates.

    I agree with you, too little chargers. So is this seen as a destination charger? If so then I think their purpose is not for daily/frequent charging (which for Condo dwellers we sometimes need).

    Does anyone know what speed this charges at? Is it slower than the superchargers at Squamish or Tsawassen? Apparently constant use of Super Chargers is also not good for our battery ()
