Earlier I received a credible rumor regarding the location of the Supercharger Station coming to Sarasota. My source believed that the station would be located at a Whole Foods Market in Sarasota. There currently is a Whole Foods in downtown Sarasota, but that would not be an ideal location.
However, Whole Foods is currently building a large 40,000 square foot anchor store at University Station which will be located at the southwest corner of University Parkway and Honore Avenue in Sarasota. This development is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year which is consistent with Tesla's information on their Find Us page.
This is located nearby University Town Center Mall (utc) and is a good location for a Supercharger Station once the major road construction is completed to facilitate access to this area.
I asked the University Station Facebook page folks whether they could confirm that they would be hosting a Tesla Supercharger there. I received an interesting response. They didn't ask me what a Supercharger was, nor did they deny it was going in there. Here's their response. "University Station - Sarasota We cannot confirm that but stay tuned to our page for updates."
Here's a vicinity map of the location of University Station. You can see how close it is to UTC mall (see Kona Grill) and I-75.
Well, today a member at Tesla Motors Club confirmed that the Supercharger Station is indeed being constructed in back of the Whole Foods and it will have 20 charging stalls.
Here are a couple of photos:
Update: The Sarasota Supercharger Station is now operational!
