Schuckman Realty Instrumental in Bringing Tesla Auto Supercharging Station to Islandia Center

Schuckman Realty coordinated with Tesla Inc., Village of Islandia and the owners of the Islandia Shopping Center to bring a centrally located Tesla Auto Supercharging station to Long Island. The charging station, which will be in the Islandia Shopping Center, is scheduled to be operational by the end of June 2018.

Edward Gottlieb of Schuckman Realty facilitated ideal placement of ten Tesla Auto Charging stations at 1750 Veterans Hwy, Islandia, NY 11749. The site is within a half-mile of Exit 57 of the Long Island Expressway (Rte. 495).  In addition to the Tesla Charging Station, the Islandia Shopping Center features national tenants such as Walmart, Stop & Shop, Dave & Busters, TJ-Maxx and Blink Fitness. Schuckman Realty has represented the Islandia Shopping Center for several years and brought in many tenants; the Tesla Charging Station will be a valuable addition to this regional/community consumer center as well as Long Islands vacation destinations such as the Hamptons which will now be easily reachable by electric vehicle.

According to Tesla, supercharging can take “about 30 minutes”, therefore locating a charging station within the shopping center close to dining, shopping and amenities allows Tesla owners to charge their vehicle while they shop or “grab a cup of coffee or a quick bite to eat”. The charging station also lets Tesla owners traveling on the Long Island Expressway, which has approximately 160,504 vehicles per day in that area, to charge their vehicles near the busiest road on Long Island without having to drive far out of their way to find a charging station.
