Tesla recently signed a lease on a 60,000 square foot building in Dartmouth. After more than two years of job postings hints at the automaker opening a retail store in the province, this deal is a big deal.
Taking over Lawtons Drugs’ former home at 236 Brownlow Avenue, Tesla will occupy the entire space.
There will be a showroom, a service area, and office space when the building is complete, according to a permit filed with the city. The building was built in 1989, but was renovated in 2018, and has 150 parking spaces. The showroom will feature Tesla’s full lineup of vehicles, including the Model 3, Model Y and Roadster.
The new Service Center will be a welcomed addition for owners in the area. There are now about 850 Teslas in Nova Scotia, up from the last estimate of about 750 in January.
