Tesla Showroom Opens in Broadway Plaza

Broadway Plaza

The Tesla Showroom that replaced the Lacoste clothing store in Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek had its grand opening this weekend. Having only ever seen a Tesla on the road it was interesting to check it out in more detail. In the back of the showroom they have the bottom frame on display (see photo below). Since the batteries are underneath the car, there is space in front for a second trunk which I found fascinating. There is also an option (which you can see in the red car) to put additional rear facing seats for small kids which would make me very nervous but according to a Tesla representative the back is reinforced better. Even if you’re not in the market for a $70,000 car I still recommend checking out this showroom to see the possibilities.

Broadway Plaza Demolition Begins


The demolition of part of Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek has now begun as their redevelopment plan goes forward. As you can see in the above photo, the backside and side where Burberry used to be is completely gone.

The other side of Broadway Plaza is still open, as are Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Macy’s. In May Tesla will be opening a showroom, and based on some scuttlebutt Madewell and  Michael Kors plan on opening in the new section.

Tesla Showroom Opening in May in Broadway Plaza


Back in January I noted that a Tesla showroom would be opening in the former Lacoste clothing store in Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek and the signage is now up preparing for a May opening. So even though half of Broadway Plaza is closed for redevelopment it’s good to see a new store especially Tesla opening up here.

Edwards Luggage Signage Up in New Broadway Plaza Location


Last month Edwards Luggage reopened in a new Broadway Plaza location in downtown Walnut Creek and their outside signage is now up. Looks like they rebranded themselves as Edwards – Everything Travel which was a great decision as it better describes what their store is all about. Not just luggage. Check out their website here.
