Baker Construction & Development Opens Tesla Service Center in Liberty Lake

Baker Construction & Development Inc. recently opened a new Tesla Service Center in Liberty Lake.

In an announcement this week, the Spokane-based construction company announced construction of the service center which will include a 6,300 square foot showroom and workspace for employees, as well as a 37,460 square foot maintenance and service facility on over 5 acres at 1805 N. Pepper Lane.

The service center will also include 240 parking spaces and multiple Tesla V3 boost stations capable of delivering peak charging rates of up to 250 kilowatts.

Tesla opened the first public V3 Supercharger site in 2019 at its factory in Fremont, California.

Tesla did not respond to a request for comment on the Liberty Lake service center.

Spokesperson-Review reported in April that Denver-based Drake Real Estate Services — which has previously partnered with Tesla on electric vehicle projects — had filed plans with the city to build the facility.

Drake Real Estate Services helped develop Tesla’s first auto sales and service facility in Colorado, according to Maxwell Builders, a Colorado-based company that built the facility.

Tesla’s Liberty Lake service center is expected to be completed in early 2022, according to Baker Construction & Development.

The facility, when complete, will employ 50 people, according to an environmental review of the project.

Tesla opened its first service center in Spokane last year at 3304 E. Springfield Ave. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based electric vehicle and clean energy company currently operates five stores and service centers in the state, according to its website.
