The $13.7 million, 26,000-square-foot rehabilitation by GBBN Architects is now fully occupied by OneValley. The massive doors to the train sheds are now glass, through which you can see two levels of desks and meeting rooms.
A solitary, rusty crane hangs from the ceiling, as a reminder of the building’s industrial past. A partnership with Monmade fills the Roundhouse with locally-crafted touches, from a kitchen island by Bones and All to a reception desk from Temper and Grit.
The Erie Minority-Owned Business Accelerator Builds a Supportive Ecosystem to Launch and Grow Black Businesses
The Erie Minority-Owned Business Accelerator, led by Bridgeway Capital and financed by the Erie County Gaming and Revenue Authority (ECGRA), has been valuable for early-stage entrepreneurs as they navigate the pandemic. During a time of uncertainty, the Accelerator program offered a supportive space to develop, test, and launch new business ventures with a trusted network of advisors and peers. The accelerator has graduated 10 entrepreneurs from the program and welcomes 7 entrepreneurs to begin the program in late August 2021. Participants will engage in nine months of extensive mentoring and one-on-one tailored assistance focused on business planning and strategy.
Bridgeway Capital said it is serving as UPMC’s lending partner for a newly established $7.95 million affordable housing loan fund, created through UPMC’s participation in Accelerating Investments for Healthy Communities, which is funded by the Robert WoodJohnson Foundation for the Center for Community Investment.
Partnerships with UPMC for You and national funders commit over $7 million to increase affordable housing in Pittsburgh
Bridgeway Capital, a Pittsburgh-based Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), serves as UPMC’s lending partner for a newly established $7,950,000 affordable housing loan fund created through UPMC’s participation in Accelerating Investments for Healthy Communities, an initiative funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation for the Center for Community Investment. The affordable housing loan fund combines capital commitments from UPMC for You, Bridgeway Capital, and the Kresge Foundation to offer flexible loans that enable more quality, affordable housing to be built in the City of Pittsburgh. Ultimately, this initiative will contribute to over 330 rental homes for low-income Pittsburghers.
