The Pickering Building

960 Penn Avenue | 10 am to 4 pm


Visitors can explore this historic building, transformed into co-share office spaces. From the brightly lit lobby visitors will be led to the third floor, which features two “White Box Spaces” ready to be customized to a tenant’s needs. Then, on the 7th floor, visitors can experience an incredible tenant lounge and conference rooms. Enjoy stunning views of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. The space is adorned with furniture from Leah Koubar and pop art from local artist Burton Morris, whose work was featured on the hit NBC comedy Friends.


Built in 1885 and designed by architect John Barr, this terra-cotta building housed Pickering’s “Greatest Furniture and Carpet Store.” Originally only six stories tall, three more floors were later added as the company grew. The brick wall between Pickering and the adjoining warehouse was also removed for further expansion. After several decades, Pickering closed in 1931 and the building has undergone many uses since.
