Beauty Shoppe opens co-working space in Lawrenceville


There aren’t any cars at Arsenal Motors.

But one can be driven here.

The Butler Street building is the latest location for Beauty Shoppe, a Pittsburgh company that offers shared work spaces.

Beauty Shoppe tries to reinvigorate historic buildings to help in the revitalization of urban neighborhoods. There are three locations in Cleveland and one planned for Detroit this fall.

The Butler Street building in Lawrenceville opened earlier this month. It encompasses 30,000 square feet. The project is a joint venture with locals Q Development and Ernie Sota of Sota Construction as well as Desmone Architects, Studio Lithe, and Bones & All.

The space offers services, and programs for individuals, small businesses and companies seeking remote, flexible, workspace.

Q Development on the North Side is a real estate developer that specializes in historic properties in and around Pittsburgh said Rick Belloli, principal. He said this project was among the first to use historic tax credits.

The building was originally constructed by Ford Motor Co. in 1910 as a manufacturing space

“It’s about keeping the integrity of the building and leading by example where an existing building can be restored for modern usage,” Belloli said.
