    There are 6 new destination chargers at UVillage on the B level by Din Tai Fung in the parking garage on the South end. They were not energized tonight, but look ready to go.

    B level means those chargers will be ICE’d about 90% of the time. They need to be all the way at the top or have some serious signage that threatens towing for unauthorized parking.

    Yes, the ChargePoint chargers are still in the garage. I think these chargers will be there primarily to support the new Tesla showroom going in on the ground floor of the parking garage. There is going to be a new parking garage on the 25th avenue side of the mall and I would bet they’ll put an urban supercharger in that one once it’s completed.

    Pretty sure those chargers are for the new Tesla dealership opening downstairs. In other words, not for public use.

    There's a showroom going in at UVillage? Cool! I realize this probably isn't new news, but it's new to me! Thanks!

    Remember Tesla has stores, not dealerships. One of the advantages of buying a Tesla is not having to go through the auto dealer cartel.

    Here’s a photo of the construction location for the new Tesla store.

    With the store in the same building, I don't think so.

    1- The store will call whoever to get ice vehicule removed right away
    2- There will be Teslas parked in these spots all the time, so, very unlikely to not understand what this is, or to pretend to not know.

    I was told today that these chargers are reserved for test drives but can be reserved for owners if you’re in a pinch. You need to call ahead to the store to reserve.

    There are signs up now stating "Authorized Use Only"... I'm quite sure these are just meant for the showroom and not for general public. I know sometimes the showrooms will let you charge if they aren't using it..but that's case by case and requires you to park and go ask anyway.

    Supercharger is still on the official map for U Village as "coming soon 2018". But no permit info or anything on supercharge.info so it might be a while...

    Personally, I like the idea of supercharging while getting my dumplings :) but I think the planned Northgate location is going to be far more useful for both I5 through-travel and general area supercharging needs, it's much more accessible.

    BTW in case people didn't know, Northgate currently has free L2 charging at Nordstrom Rack, also a CHADEMO and CCS high speed but I'm not sure if those are free. It's a great location for catching a movie at the cinema across the street and picking up 40-50 miles or so

    yep noticed the northgate ones few days ago. was pleasantly surprised.

    even saw destination chargers in Willows Lodge, woodenville. if anyone's in the wine country, you can stop by here for a quick charge.

    Westlake showroom sales rep said that the U-Village and Downtown Seattle superchargers weren't expected until "Late 2018 to early 2019".

    When I bought my first Model S in 2016, they told me the Seattle supercharger would be done by the end of the year.

    After talking with other owners, I've been informed that the "Seattle supercharger" pin has been on the map since at least 2014.

    I've said it many times so I'll say it again - when it comes to supercharger promises, hold not thy breath.
