Tesla to convert Boise warehouse for new facility

Tamarack Resort Q4 2020

California-based automaker Tesla will increase its presence in Boise in coming months.

TOK Commercial said it leased warehouse space to the automaker. The 19,610 space on Beverly St. in Boise sits in an industrial park south of the freeway.

A building permit indicates Tesla will build out the space for “auto sales and service.” Most of Tesla’s existing showrooms are located in shopping centers and other high-end commercial spaces.

It started opening service centers across the country, typically in more industrial type areas, like the Boise location. A new service center just opened in Spokane.

Tesla will spend $2.67 million to retrofit the empty warehouse for its needs, according to a permit application.

Tesla currently operates a so-called Supercharger station – a place for vehicles to plug in and top off batteries – near I-84 and the Boise Spectrum.

The automaker, known for its electric vehicle and outspoken founder, offers four different vehicles – and also sells solar roof panels.
