Innovative Mixed Use Renovation in Pittsburgh, PA, Prime for Urban Market

The Assembly aerial

A historic building that once housed the Ford Motor Company in Pittsburgh’s Bloomfield neighborhood has new life as a world-class mixed use destination. The Assembly has been developed as a hub, combining research, innovation and entrepreneurship, and is a collaboration between the University of Pittsburgh and Wexford Science+Technology. This is an excellent opportunity for a new Street Corner franchisee to operate an Urban Market that services tenants and the surrounding community and universities.

Bloomfield is an East Pittsburgh neighborhood with deep historical roots. Located in Allegheny County, the community is known locally as Pittsburgh’s “Little Italy,” and features a bevy of pizzarias, old-school Italian restaurants, locally owned retailers and taverns. The Assembly draws visitors from nearby Shadyside, home of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. It is a trendy, walkable neighborhood that features a wide array of up-scale boutiques, brand name shops, vintage antiques and home decor stores.

  • 14,186 residential units within a one-mile radius
  • More than 57,000 students enrolled at five universities in the immediate area, including Chatham and Carnegie Mellon Universities in addition to the University of Pittsburgh
  • More than 3,200 businesses within one mile with nearly 34,000 employees
