Allegheny Center Mall in Pittsburgh, PA opened in 1965 as one of the largest retail areas in the United States. Nobody would have imagined that it would turn into dilapidated buildings with vacant storefronts until Faros Properties decided to come to Pittsburgh with a grand vision. Faros invested over $100 million dollars in renovations to convert the old Allegheny Center Mall into a home for some of the trendiest global technology companies, rebranding it Nova Place. In the heart of the complex you’ll find Alloy26 which happens to be the old Woolworth’s Department Store, and where I vividly remember buying my first and only hamster and taking him home on the bus in my backpack.
Alloy26 offers 50,000 square feet of amazing co-working space that inspires creativity and fuses together entrepreneurs from a multitude of disciplines . The list of amenities will give your friends a serious case of office envy, as members get access to snacks and drinks; organic, fair-trade coffee; private phone booths; conference rooms; access to join Union Fitness; and a little R&R time by soaking up the amazing views of downtown Pittsburgh or starting a ping pong tournament against your fellow coworkers.
The partnerships and sponsorships that Alloy26 has utilized has made the space thriving to the point that the team suites are on a wait list… who wouldn’t want to be able to call this amazing space their touchdown pad, growth space or office space for work? Alloy26 offers flexible terms which give you the option for daily, weekly or monthly passes and starting in April, they will be offering free coworking Friday’s (every month on the 3rd Friday of the month)! With a drop-in rate that is normally $25, this is a great opportunity to experience Alloy26 and all their fine offerings, including the free coffee and snacks, as well as the stellar location that can’t be beat!
