Tesla Motors St Petersburg is finally opening.  Kane’s Furniture store in St Pete, Florida is getting a new lease on life.  Tesla Motors sales and service facility is taking over the space.  Truett Commercial Realty Group, owned by Delray Beach developer Rob Truett, acquired the 4.2-acre site for $13 million in April 2022 and proposed an extensive renovation of the property, which was previously used as a liquidation center by Kane’s Furniture. The facility now houses a 3,000-square-foot showroom.  Additionally there is a 45,000-square-foot service center, 50,000-square-foot vehicle storage facility with 170 parking spaces.  As a matter of fact there is a 8,000-square-foot parts department, and a customer lounge.

The property is part of the 2,500-acre Lealman Community Redevelopment Area.  This helped speed up the buildout of the Tesla Motors St Petersburg facility.  In addition, it allowed Truett  Commercial Realty Group to gain approval for vehicle sales on the site. The facility’s location in an unincorporated part of Pinellas County is also home to the 77,000-square-foot Lealman Exchange Community Center.
