    As my (coffee) drinking buddy JakeP would say.... I think I found a "smoking gun":

    TESLA Pittsburgh.com: Pittsburgh Location Soon?

    Now I just have to be patient... patient... patient....

    Lots of speculation in my blog, but here's the summary: there is a single part-time job posted for Pittsburgh, Ross Park area. I'm guessing an interim location in the mall pending the establishment of a full Service Center/Store. It's a baby step--- but at least we're moving out of the crawling stage in Pittsburgh!

    This is interesting, because the mall site is a departure from the Service Center Plus model. I wonder if they will have a nearby building for service? Or an additional Service Center Plus a few miles away, like King of Prussia/Devon?

    The other day I noticed that the Tesla Find Us map shows a Pittsburgh Store and Service center as "coming soon" in zip code 15201. The pin on the map is near the Lawrenceville Technology Center, but it could just be the center of that zip code, which runs along the south bank of the Allegheny river roughly from the Route 8 bridge west to 29th street. It's not particularly close to major highways, but it's certainly accessible even if traffic gets heavy at times.

    Yep, it's just for the geo-location of the service area. We have a Ranger here M-F and the Tesla folks definitely have a specific location for the service center in play, but it's not where the map indicates.

    Tesla is now doing some service (annual service, at least) in Ross Park Mall making use of the Sears Auto Center equipment when needed. First my car traveled to Columbus, then to Cleveland, and now to the North Hills, not far, if comments are to be believed, from the eventual location of their official service center.

    Did you get a GPS reading of where it was in the North Hills?

    Tesla must be building a ring of service centers from 4 to 6 hours around Rochester.

    Look at this article in the trib

    Tesla dealership gets Marshall planners' approval

    Summary is:

    Tesla is submitting a request to open a service center to the Marshall council in July.

    the proposed site is an existing building on Rt 19 between Cranberry and Wexford - the building is currently vacant, but was last occupied by Ethan Allen Furniture.

    Assuming approval, the article says that Tesla could be operational in a few months.
