Recently a club member located renovations in progress on the old Bob Wilson Dodge location at 11945 North Florida Avenue in Tampa. It appears to be a new or additional Tampa Service Center nearing completion about 14 miles from the existing Tampa Service Center.
Update May 1, 2018.
One of our club members located the following information from Tesla's Building Contractor, Scherer Construction. This status appears to be as of May 1, 2018. Their posted completion date of Summer 2018 appears to be optimistic. Our best information suggests it will be ready no earlier than October, 2018 or it may even open next year.
"The new Tesla Dealership is a repurpose of an existing auto dealership and 384 parking space garage with an office space. With only a building slab remaining, demolition of the slab and utilities were completed and the new dealership footprint installed. This project has been broken up into two phases. The first phase was the renovation of the parking garage in which all new electrical, paint, structural repairs, and replacement of the elevator was completed. In addition, the 8,000
square foot interior office space which will be used for vehicle delivery was also completed. The second phase is a new 30,000 square foot dealership and service center. The structure is made of tilt wall panels and will include 6 large overhead bay doors for the service center."
Here's their most recent aerial photo as of May 1, 2018.

Upate as of October 3, 2019.
As you may know, the new Tampa Service Center on North Florida Avenue has been handling deliveries for a while. However, recently we received a credible rumor that the maintenance section of the facility is expected to open next month.
Here's some recent photos of current operations:
Update as of October 20, 2019.
It is being reported on the Tesla Motors Club forum that a Tesla owner has received a service confirmation for the first week in November. So, if the maintenance functions haven't already been initiated at the new Tampa Service Center, they should be by early November.
Update as of 3:30 pm.
In response to our earlier update, I am informed that a club member received an email from Tesla stating that they will be moving to the new Tampa Service Center as of November 1, 2019.
Update as of October 26, 2019.
These recent photos provided by a club member show that the Service Center and Store is pretty much ready to go.
The above two photos show that there is ample space for service.
In addition to the several Wall Connectors shown in a previous photo, this photo shows what appears to be a Version 2 Supercharger. (An Urban Supercharger would only have one charging cable, a Version 3 would have four charging cables. This has two which is consistant with a Version 2.)
