Colliers International | Pittsburgh Represents La Prima Espresso as Tenant
– Secures 4,000 SF building for relocation of roasting operation to the North Side –
Colliers International | Pittsburgh is proud to announce that La Prima Espresso will be moving its roasting operation out of the Pennsylvania Railroad Fruit Auction and Sales building in the Strip District to a 4,000 square foot building located at 1500 Chateau Street in Manchester on the North Side. The property also includes a 4,000 square foot lot.
Anthony Pantoni, Industrial Services Specialist at Colliers International | Pittsburgh, was engaged as the Exclusive Tenant Representative to La Prima Espresso, securing the new 4,000 square foot location.
Raymond Orowetz P.E., LEED Green Associate of Colliers International | Pittsburgh represented the landlord in the transaction.
“As we continue to see the inventory of industrial space shrink in Greater Downtown, great locations become harder to find,” said Anthony Pantoni, Industrial Services Specialist at Colliers International | Pittsburgh. “La Prima’s relocation to Manchester is part of the revitalization going on there and we are seeing significant interest from companies considering moving there.”
“We look forward to being part of the continuing development of Manchester and being good neighbors in the community,” said Sam Patti, Owner of La Prima Espresso. “This is a coming home of sorts, as Manchester was the settlement area of early Sicilian immigrants to Pittsburgh – the heritage of my dear Mother’s family.”
The new roasting operation is scheduled to open in April of this year.
