Tesla plans to build a Supercharging Station at Tysons Corner Center according to documents submitted to Fairfax County, Virginia and obtained by PlugInSites through a Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Plans show ten charging stalls located on the west side of Garage B on Level 1. The garage is near Bloomingdale’s at the corner of Rt. 7/Leesburg Pike and International Drive.
The site drawings show that the installation will have the new 72 kW “urban” style Superchargers. Tysons may be the first in the Washington, DC area with these, more compact, charging posts. The urban Superchargers were introduced in September, 2017 and are designed to occupy less space and be easier to install, especially in city parking garages.
The urban Supercharger architecture can deliver up to 72 kW to each charging stall. Unlike the original Supercharger architecture, these are not affected by another car plugged in to a paired stall.
Tysons will be the second Tesla Supercharging Station in Fairfax County. An 18 stall Supercharger opened last week at Springfield Town Center. There are also a number of other areas in the Washington area that Tesla has identified as possible Supercharger locations.
There is no word on when construction will begin at the Tysons site.
