    Could this now vacant old City Holden site be the perfect Tesla Perth service centre and supercharger location?

    Newcastle Street, City of Vincent

    Funny things these service centres.

    When I log in to "Manage" for our Model X I get told we have a service centre in Perth and I can schedule a service online. Only problem is we don't and I can't. See attached screenshots. I'm pretty sure when Tesla app version 3.8.0 first appeared I had the schedule option too but no more.

    Nice thought on the old City Motors Holden site...

    But...

    AHG owns it and they have their Perth offices on the same site.

    Not likely.

    There's lots to like about this site. Especially three freeways intersection for easy access for supercharging and it appears to be multiple lots so maybe scale-able leasing options. Not sure how Tesla likes to roll re: purchase/lease. Perhaps AHG is the orange shaded area and is distinct.

    The old City Motors site will sell campers, caravans and the like short term. Long term it's likely to be apartments I have been told. AHG offices are on the lower left section and they are not moving anywhere.

    I'm not going to ask your sources ;)

    I like trying to guess. Had fun with the Eaton supercharger location. Let's keep "guessing"

    What a difference an Elon tweet reply seems to have made.

    So, the hunt is now officially on. Bewdy.

    I wonder what that makes our current "service centre" at "the secret location"?

    Maybe this then. Rumor on the street is Osborne Park for a service centre. Not sure how old the Google streetview pic is but CBRE Property website no longer lists this. Interestingly, City of Stirling has this property listed as a new development application ID DA19/0346 - Change of Use - Motor Vehicle Wash to Showroom. upload_2019-3-18_17-36-40.png upload_2019-3-18_17-37-34.png

    Wrong!

    Called the applicant and they confirmed "showroom" is for furniture, not shiny Teslas.

    Of course they would likley be subject to a confidentiality agreement, so it could be furniture or it could be ‘furniture’.
    In my line of business this is common.

    Shiny 'furniture' with round, black legs?

    I'd love my "wrong" to be wrong but based on my phone chat I don't think so.

    I called CBRE (real estate agent) and they didn't call back. Taylor Burrell Barnett were actually kind enough to return my call an hour or so later. I declared my interest and was hoping for a "nudge, nudge, wink, wink" over the phone but he sounded pretty convincing about it being a furniture showroom.

    It is a good location for a service centre though and would look great given the Tesla treatment. I don't think we're going to have a Supercharger at the service centre either. Burswood multistory carpark would get my vote.

    I have a service appointment in nedlands. I'm sure this isn't new to people, but surely that is the most likely region for the focus to remain?
