A new "Pre-application Consultation" was recently uploaded to the City of Tampa Accela with Rivian as the applicant. (Accela is a public access portal used by many Cities/Counties for permit tracking.)

A Pre-Application consultation identifies all issues and concerns from the both applicant and City based on the project scope.
No actual permits have been submitted.

The Scope involves tenant improvements for a 25,000 SF facility located at 701 N Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa including re-paving, new O/H Door, new driveway, new EV Charging and power upgrades. (This is an old Circuit City location).

I am surprised that Rivian appears to be moving forward at this location.
I expected the Service Center to be in an industrial/warehouse area of the City.
This site is “Main Street” in a busy Commercial setting.

Interesting that there is a footprint of other EV activity next to this location. Tesla just added a new Supercharging location at Wawa and Polestar is opening its first Florida showroom at the new Midtown mixed use project next to REI.

This would be a great location for DC charging being only a few blocks from I-275 and a few miles to I-4 and I-75.

Hopefully permits get submitted s00n.

Rivian should have had that Polestar location next to REI. They missed out I. The obvious overlap between customers.

I'm in Tampa, but no delivery date yet. That's the new / being redeveloped Midtown area

https://www.tampabay.com/news/busin...-landed-two-billion-dollar-tenants-heres-how/

from the accela :

GENERAL
Project Type:
Commercial Building Permit
Work Description:
Tenant improvement of existing one store building on a 2.23 acre site and minor site improvements. The site will be used as an EV Fleet Maintenance facility.
Questions:
-Re-paving vs. Re-grading and triggered requirements for each -Any re-striping of stalls -(1) New Overhead Door -New Driveway -New EV charging and associated site work -Power Upgrade and possible associated site work (Ie. transformer and/or utility poles) -Any Porous Pavement triggers? -Demolition of the existing Pylon Sign (not currently proposed, just want to understand implications) -Considerations for adjacency to Residential Property


---------

A service center will be right at home among the many car dealerships on the same road.

After I posted the Dale Mabry location from Accela I had a Rivian employee tell me they are passing on that site/location. Planning a Hub somewhere....
