Tesla has reportedly filed plans for a 29-stall supercharger and diner/drive-in theater location in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. The placement is at 7001 Santa Monica Boulevard on the intersection with Orange Drive.
Tesla initially deliberate to construct the diner within the coastal metropolis of Santa Monica, however then moved the plans to Hollywood. Now, maybe a little bit confusingly to out-of-towners, we’ve discovered the diner will nonetheless be in Hollywood… however on Santa Monica Boulevard, one of many major streets on the town.
The previous website in Santa Monica does have a supercharger which opened in February, although that supercharger is now not getting a diner.
The brand new location is at the moment occupied by a Shakey’s Pizza Parlor, which appears to nonetheless be operational. The plans would contain demolishing the Shakey’s and constructing a brand new two-story diner as a substitute. The property already has a big car parking zone, although the lot would want transforming so as to add superchargers.
The underside ground will include the kitchen, a bar with stool seating, a number of cubicles, and an out of doors bar across the fringe of the constructing. The highest ground could have outside rooftop seating with a bar, a number of tables, and two rows of a theater-style seating space and a standing bar behind the theater seats. The underside ground additionally has a “carhop space” for waitstaff to deliver meal orders out to automobiles within the car parking zone.
The theater-style seating will look out on a car parking zone with 29 supercharger stalls and 34 whole spots – the final 5 could have stage 2 chargers for lower-speed charging. The car parking zone could have two screens seen to the rooftop space and to automobiles within the car parking zone.
The theater will present quick options, round half-hour lengthy, meant to final so long as an ordinary meal/charging session would possibly final.
It’s exhausting to inform from these drawings what aesthetic the diner will match. Initially it was billed as an “old-school” diner, however the addition of bamboo panorama screens surrounding the property on the North and West sides appear to diverge from that aesthetic. Tesla could now be focusing on a “futuristic” aesthetic, somewhat than the unique “old-school” one, and these drawings appear to be they may go both approach.
Tesla is asking the town to permit the location to be operational 24 hours a day – together with the restaurant. The theater could not function all evening lengthy, although, as Tesla hasn’t requested for the town to vary restrictions on theater operation. We don’t know if this implies the restaurant will certainly be open 24 hours, however Tesla not less than desires the allow to have the ability to keep open that lengthy.
Tesla has filed for permits earlier than for this undertaking when it was within the Metropolis of Santa Monica, so plans may change once more, particularly if the town comes again and says that this undertaking has deficiencies. The car parking zone, specifically, does appear to have just a few oddly-shaped spots, so we’ll see if the town has some points with that.
