Second Fancy Car Company “Establishment” To Move In On Cross Creek Road – But Don’t Call It A Dealership
Written by 991KBU on November 7, 2020
Malibu is getting its very own auto row.
A very tasteful and restrained auto row … but an auto row.
First … Audi quietly opened up some sort of top secret research and design and showroom facility at an old office building … tucked up Cross Creek road just before the entrance gate to the Serra Estates.
Now … Tesla has plans to open a small showroom next door … in the Park at Cross Creek.
Don’t call it a showroom.
Tesla has the city describing it as an “establishment.”
It will offer vehicle education, sale of vehicle accessories and a product showroom.
Ah … a showroom.
Test drives at the “establishment” will be by appointment only during store hours.
The city description says … mysteriously … that the Tesla vehicles “will not be utilizing required parking.”
Apparently … they will hover in the area.
Or …. their robot drivers will circle Downtown Malibu waiting for customers to arrive … via appointment only.
The Tesla “establishment” will get a cursory kick of the tires by the Planning Commission in a week.
But the deal is a test drive … it appears that Tesla does not need city approval to establish itself int he shopping center.
