In a past life, we were almost as cool as we are today. Almost.
The Armstrong Cork Company was a thriving cork-cutting enterprise founded in 1860 by Thomas M. Armstrong. Following a devastating fire at its original 10-story building in the Strip District, a massive new multi-building brick complex was begun in 1901. The two parallel sections are the unmistakable work of Frederick John Osterling, one of the most in-demand Pittsburgh architects at the turn-of-the-century. The section between the two buildings was added in 1913. The outside architectural treatment is characteristic of its time, an imposing masonry expression with simple brick ornamentation.
The Cork Factory is a true historic landmark. Rarely have the past and present co-existed so beautifully in one place.
It’s life. Stripped.
For once, the biggest buzz in the Strip doesn’t belong to a hip new restaurant or a hot new club.
Here, in Pittsburgh’s only 24-hour neighborhood, the one place everyone’s clamoring to get into is the Cork Factory.
