Fulton Commons to bring kitchen incubator, coworking space, artist studios to North Side
An old North Side school building is getting a new life as a shared creative space.
Botero Development is transforming Saint Joseph School in Manchester into a place that will offer food companies unlimited access to commercial kitchen equipment, reports Next Pittsburgh. Artist studios will give creatives some room to work. Communal work areas, conference rooms and private offices will help freelancers and startups get up and running.
Brothers Brian and Irwin Mendelssohn are the principal owners of the local development firm, according to Next Pittsburgh. They are calling Fulton Commons a kitchen incubator-artist studio-coworking space. The structure, on Fulton Street, has 18,800 square feet of space.
Next Pittsburgh reports that about 150 Fulton Commons memberships will be available, including 30 kitchen spots (starting at $650 per month) and 15 artist workshops (starting at $350 per month). Coworking users will pay between $125 to $400 per month, depending on accommodations. All members will receive business planning guidance.
The facility is scheduled to open in late August.
