Tesla withdraws plans for 515 Veterans Blvd.

Tesla’s application to locate at 515 Veterans Blvd. in Redwood City has been withdrawn.

In May, the city’s Planning Commission unanimously approved a plan by Tesla to install a 4,941 square foot sales showroom and 15,257 square foot service area at the site of a former Crunch Fitness.

“Following the Planning Commission meeting, Tesla decided they did not want to have a sales center at this location, they only wanted a service center,” city spokesperson Meghan Horrigan told Climate today.  “Staff said they could not support the application without the sales center, so Tesla withdrew their application.”

City staff has not seen any new plans for 515 Veterans Blvd., but “know there is interest,” Horrigan said.
