The Building Restoration Project
We are working to transform our building in McKeesport, into a central destination for community gatherings. It will be fully equipped with roomy office space, two storefronts, and an enclosed rear green space. Once complete, our building will be a place for innovation and learning, along with a business incubator and event space. The facility will also house our youth barista program and coffee house, “Urban Java.” C-clear, is a center for innovation and empowerment!
C-Clear Building Restoration Project
Currently unoccupied and built in the late 19th century, our new C-clear space is in the inaugural stages of a complete building restoration. Our building is paid in full and boasts over 6,000 square feet of massive potential.
It features two wide open storefronts with two floors of office and programming space located directly above. The enclosed rear outdoor green space is perfect for hosting intimate private and community events, while indoor exhibit space rents for shows and events. The facility will also house our youth barista program and coffee house, “Urban Java.”
Our goal is to transform the building into a central destination for community gatherings, a place for innovative learning, and a cutting-edge business incubator space, stimulating community engagement and our plan for sustainability. This gives aspiring entrepreneurs a platform to develop job creation and new community and economic development.
