    All -

    Opening the beginning of November is this HUGE Sales & Service Center in Milford, CT. Space for 300 cars in the lot, they will have 5 Model S's on display for immediate sale in the showroom (evidentally a requirement in CT).

    Large service area with at least 6-8 lifts. Rumor also has it they are considering putting a Supercharger on site - even though the Milford, CT Supercharger on I95 is only a mile away....

    My guess is that they will use this facility as a New England distribution center as well...

    Wow! So it's a Tesla "dealership" basically? Kind of a new sales model at least here on the east coast.

    That's a lot of parking--keep them rolling in East Coast style.

    Great pics--thanks!

    Great! I meant to check it out a few weeks ago as the MA folks told me the sign had gone up, but I ran out of time (too much chatting at the Supercharger LOL!)
    This will be my local SC once I move.

    Can't wait to meet you Tslagrl.... Perhaps they will have a "Grand Opening" event like the superchargers. I know the guy that is going to be the manager and will suggest it to him!

    Looking forward to it - It will be great not to have to go to NY or MA for service!

    I'm bummed they killed the Wilton service center, as it would have been five miles from my house. That said, I drove by the Milford location yesterday and all I can say is HOLY CRAP it is big and going to be awesome.

    I also am hoping for a grand opening. Always nice to have a Tesla meetup.

    My speculation is that Tesla realized that Wilton just wasn't going to be big enough. The Watertown facility is seriously undersized, and it doesn't make sense to undertake the costs to build yet another sub-scale SC.

    Folks at the Watertown SC told us they are in the process of negotiating for bigger space to move to - not far from current location. That should help.

    Any opening date?

    We're now approaching the end of November and I don't think it's opened yet. Does anyone know when it might?

    My interest is really that I'm taking delivery of a Model S in early January and it would be much more convenient here than trekking down to White Plains.

    Thanks!

    The ran in to some zoning issues that they are trying to resolve quickly, so they are shooting for a December opening.

    I'm trying to get them to also have a "Grand Opening" since several other Tesla owners I know would like to visit for the opening....

    If they do a grand opening, I'd try to come by. It is about 30 miles from me.
