Truett Realty Group has purchased the site for a planned Tesla location that it has been hired to develop in St. Petersburg, Florida, for $13 million USD — reports The Tampa Bay Business Journal.

It was reported last month Pinellas County had approved a massive Tesla sales, service, and delivery center in St. Pete — the first modicum of Tesla’s presence in the region — at the 4.2-acre site of Kane’s Furniture liquidation center at 4601 34th St. N.

The location is situated in the Lealman Community Redevelopment Area, which was established in 2015 to revitalize Lealman and is also home to an under-construction Amazon last-mile delivery center.

Tesla has plans for a 3,000 square-foot showroom fronting 34th Street, a 35,000-45,000 square-foot service center for maintenance and repairs, an 8,000-10,000 square-foot storage section for vehicle parts, and a 50,000 square-foot facility for vehicle storage the site.
