Tesla’s Hollywood Diner and Supercharger is still in the early stages of construction, but could soon be expanding in a significant way. The company has filed plans to more than double the Supercharger capacity at the site.
Tesla began construction on their Hollywood Supercharger project in September last year. According to plans filed with the City of Los Angeles, the site will eventually feature a two-storey restaurant with enough seating for over 200 people, along with a separate theater seating area that can accommodate up to 77 people, where you can sit and watch the movies playing on the two large 45-foot-tall LED movie screens in the parking lot.
The plans also revealed that parking lot will be home to 32 Supercharger stalls, but now Tesla wants to significantly expand that number. While the existing plans make full use of the site (7001 Santa Monica Boulevard), Tesla has filed for a new permit to use an adjacent lot (1118 N Sycamore Ave) to build an additional 48 Supercharger stalls.
Those stalls will be covered with a solar canopy, according to copies of the permits shared by MarcoRP on X.

Here is a look at the lot currently under construction, and the proposed expansion with the lot to the northwest.
As for the Hollywood diner, construction has been progressing over the last few months. The main restaurant building has risen to two floors, with the stairs between floors now installed. No work has started on the parking lot and Superchargers, according photos of the site taken on Sunday by @ShorealoneFilms.
