Francis Scott Key Mall is Proposed Site of Frederick, MD Supercharger
Tesla plans to build a Frederick Maryland Supercharger at Francis Scott Key Mall according to documents submitted to Frederick County and obtained by PlugInSites through a Maryland Public Information Act request. The planned location is south east of the town of Frederick which is roughly in the vicinity of where I-270 and I-70 merge. Map link.
Plans show ten charging stalls located on the north edge of the parking lot along Spectrum Drive near JC Penny. There’s a Red Robin restaurant and a BJ’s Brewhouse nearby in the same parking lot. In addition to the Mall’s food options, there’s a Panera, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Baja Fresh and several other eateries across Spectrum Dr.
Frederick, MD Supercharger to Have 10 Stalls
The site drawings show the installation to have 10 regular style Supercharger stalls, all back-in oriented.
The Frederick Maryland Supercharger will be a useful complement to the Haymarket, Virginia Supercharger that opened in December, 2018 because Route 15 runs north and south through both areas. Hagerstown, MD Supercharger to the west on I-70 was one of the links in Tesla’s first coast-to-coast chain of Superchargers.
Many more Tesla Superchargers are anticipated for the Washington, DC area in 2019. Depending on how the schedule materializes, Frederick could be one of them. There is no word yet on when construction will begin. There’s always the possibility of a delay and Tesla has the option of extending the original October, 2018 permit application which is valid for six months.
