Tesla one step closer to Gigafactory 4 construction as purchase contract approved

Tesla Gigafactory Berlin

Tesla this week received approval from Brandenburg’s Finance Committee to officially purchase the 300 hectare plot from the local government.

Work has already begun on the site even before receiving final approval, as surveying and partial clearing of the site occurred recently.

The deal is worth €40.91 million (via The Bild), equating to less than €137,000 per hectare, a very good deal for industrial land in the area.
