#1 Cochran Breaks Ground on Strip District Location

A ceremony marked the groundbreaking on a brand new home for Audi Pittsburgh in the historic Strip District.

#1 Cochran President and CEO, Rob Cochran, his wife Christina, members of the #1 Cochran leadership team and VIPs from Audi of America and the City of Pittsburgh dug shovels into the dirt at the corner of Liberty Avenue and 21st Street. That’s where the state-of-the-art new Audi Pittsburgh Terminal is slated to open in the Spring of 2018.

Rob Cochran and company dig in.

“People from all over have visited the Strip District for generations for products and experiences they won’t find anywhere else in the region,” Mr. Cochran said. “Our Audi Pittsburgh Terminal will complement that one-of-a-kind tradition as well as the spirit of innovation and revitalization that has taken hold in the area.”

The completed Terminal will be nothing less than standard setting in both physical appearance and customer experience. The three-story, 19,000 square-foot structure’s first level will feature multi-vehicle, drive-thru service reception. It will also feature an exclusive Audi Sport area that’s only found in a select few Audi locations worldwide. The stunning “Jewel Box” architectural design will highlight high-performance R8 and RS models.

An expansive 2nd-floor showroom will showcase more top-of-the-line vehicles, while the 3rd-floor mezzanine will house offices and conference rooms. All floors will also have relaxation areas so customers can kick back in luxury. And there will even be a rooftop entertainment area with panoramic views of the Downtown skyline.

The exterior will also boast a 190+ vehicle parking deck. This will hold new and pre-owned vehicles and an eco-friendly, “green wall.”

What’s perhaps most special about this forthcoming location is the teamwork that brought us here. #1 Cochran outperformed 30 dealer groups from around the country to be awarded the franchise. Our track record of exceptional customer experience made #1 Cochran the top choice. Every Team Member plays a role in it.

There’s still a lot of work to do before the Audi Pittsburgh Terminal—the first franchised dealership to ever call the Strip home—officially opens its doors. But now that ground has been broken, a new chapter in #1 Cochran history has begun.
