It's coming together quite fast.

The structure itself is massive. I'll try to update the pictures on a monthly basis. I took these today. Clearly the crews are working at least 6 days a week towards a completion date.

I was going to drop in yesterday and take pictures but you beat me to it.

Thanks for the update!

Monthly updates?

No way. What a difference a week makes!

To the trained eye, I'm sure this will help shed some light on a possible completion date.

What strikes me now is how fast the interior of the building is being set up. What isn't conveyed from the photos is how busy the crews are inside. Both Bay doors are operational and multiple trucks were entering/exiting while I was on site. There was also a fourfold increase in the number of people working.

More of that Tesla red sure is great to see.

I think Trevor is right. January seems most likely at this point.

Because I reserved on September 3rd I missed out on the exclusive print run, but maybe we'll get a shout to attend the Grand Opening? That could be a great meet up! With the Club now in the official press loop I'm sure Tesla will reach out in some form.

Maybe the next posting should include a peak of the rear of the facility. I agree with Terrence, the very front makes the most sense for Superchargers, but I suspect IF they're in the planning, they'll be installed in a final phase. Time will tell.

Just dropped into the location to check on things. Not much has changed but you can see the telltale Tesla colours. I saw a couple of workers augering holes for those concrete-filled steel pipes in the parking lot. Thought it might be for a gate but who knows.

I coukd see from the highway the rear facade might get some Tesla signage too. It's a very big facility compared to Lawrence street and should really help take the lead off service especially in the west end. I can see Model 3 deliveries happening here in good nunbers. Parking lot is decent size too.

I hope Tesla rewards your efforts and passion with an invitation to the Grand Opening Trevor. Very much deserved.

Well, we have good relations with Tesla PR (all 3 employees in that department) and we've asked very nicely to be put on the list for the final Model 3 reveal event. Keeping my fingers crossed for that one :)

Should we start a GoFundMe campaign to pay for the trip? You'll only have to do posts every minute for the whole duration.

Interesting... Would people actually contribute to pay for a plane ticket and hotel?

You bought us coffee and donuts I think many of us would chip in something. Just make sure you drive back in a prototype we can take rides in.
