It’s just a site survey, there are a whole bunch of them. Most don’t amount to anything.
I reported this over a month ago, see post #1269 above. And no, they should not be sent to @BlueShift. Site surveys are just that, not construction permits. It tells us where to look for construction permits but as @Twiglett said many of them are never heard from again.

Once again, no, for the reason explained above. And there’s nothing new here. Every one of these has already been mentioned in this or another Texas thread. But congrats on learning how to use the underground digging request search tool.
I wrote my second message while you wrote your replies, so didn't see your response until I posted my second message... I at least documented Texas sites with city, address and host per survey info ("cite your sources") and came up with new ones. Previous info here was mostly anecdotal and less complete. I have new locations to watch now. I think this info is useful. Sorry if you don't.
Thanks for the congrats.
Agree it is useful to keep an eye and see if any of them become blueshift material. Just not ready for blueshift to document yet.
Not saying it’s not useful, just that it’s several steps too early to get blueshift to add.
Vast majority of these may not even be superchargers.
Earliest step blueshift needs to be looped in is when permits are requested - specifically for superchargers.
Has anyone heard about any possible movement towards a College Station SC beyond the initial announcement from Tesla regarding their future plans?
Now that my car is arriving this week they should get on this ASAP.
Stock market wants a profit from Tesla. Instead of investing profits into infrastructure, they are stopping new Supercharger construction starts until after they show a profit for a quarter, then I suspect they will start back up.
I thought that a month ago, but I have a feeling that Elon has something up his sleeve (besides his rubber calendar), because SC installations came to a near halt at the beginning of the month, but seem to be picking up again.
I didn't look at worldwide construction, but in North America the 17 known Superchargers under construction were all started before this quarter, except one that started just a couple of days into the quarter (it was taped off in June, but ground not broken until July).
Possibly related to both desire for cash, and upcoming new Supercharger design. A frustrating pause, though temporary. For a while it seemed like they'd be blitzing superchargers everywhere there were Model 3 reservations.
Perhaps we were just spoiled with the Dallas surge (3 opened this year alone!) and now we're back to the slow plod; no openings in Texas since April. One about to complete in Houston.
edit: my hope is that being cash flow positive will do wonders in general; personal hopes are for spending on Superchargers and a Model X acceleration shudder fix!
The City of Stafford has released its July building permit report, and it has an item on July 23rd (unclear if this is application date or issue date) for a "Vehicle Charge Station" with a project cost of $90,000 at Wal-Mart, 11210 West Airport Blvd where Tesla has previously called for utility markings. There may also be an Electrify America station going in here, but if anyone is in the area it might be worthwhile to take a look.
I quickly cruised the area this evening on the way home. There are a couple of prospective areas on each side of the building and towards the rear with power nearby, but I didn’t see anything that looked like excavation or construction in the area of the Walmart.
Tesla is surveying the entryway to the garage at Palm Dr. and Domain Way in Austin. This is the garage near the Tesla gallery and has its HPWCs on the lower level. Urban superchargers, or more HPWCs?
Another utility site survey for Tesla, this one in Mesquite at Town East Mall.
This just in, dateline the Stafford Wal-Mart.
Getting the last of the carts out! (Whatever this project is )
Maybe looking for the supercharger? You can charge that sucker up in less than 30 seconds!
