The relocation of La Prima Espresso’s roasting operation to 1500 Chateau Street in Manchester on the North Side has been welcomed with open arms and valued by community leaders for their investment.  Since their relocation from the Pennsylvania Railroad Fruit Auction and Sales building in the Strip District in February, the production and wholesale unit of their roasting operation has been growing steadily, and now features business offices and an in-house cafe being planned in the front with the production area behind. The 4,000 square foot building also includes a 4,000 square foot lot.

“Manchester was not even on their radar for a new site.  I was familiar with the building, the lot, and the Manchester Citizens Corp.,” said Anthony Pantoni, Industrial Services Specialist at Colliers International | Pittsburgh.  “At that point all it took was showing the value of this up and coming neighborhood in Pittsburgh to La Prima. Their relocation to Manchester is part of the revitalization going on there and we are seeing significant interest from companies considering moving there.” Read the rest of this entry
