VIENNA, VA — The future Wawa in Vienna has applied for a permit from Fairfax County to have electric chargers for Tesla vehicles.
Tysons Reporter first reported that the location proposed eight Tesla charging posts and two charging cabinets. The permit has not yet been approved, but the Wawa did receive permits for electrical connections for signs, installation of wall and freestanding signs, and commercial interior altercations. A permit application for the new layout with a new exterior entry tower is processing.
Tesla has a network of charging stations for its electric cars. If approved, Wawa would have the first Tesla chargers in Vienna. The closest Tesla chargers are in Tysons.
The store will be located at 465 Maple Ave West, which is on the corner of Nutley Street. First constructed in 1974, the building was the former location of a Coldwell Banker office.
Wawa has been expanding in the DC region, opening a downtown DC location in 2017, followed by a Georgetown location in 2018 and Columbia Heights location in 2019. Some other Northern Virginia locations include Chantilly, Sterling, Manassas, Gainesville and Woodbridge.
