Design Matters

This Georgian Federal-style building opened in 1918 as a headquarters for the Americus Republican Club of Pittsburgh. The first two floors were laid out by Edward Lee, a Pittsburgh architect known for his work on the HYP Club and the Liberty Theater (now 810 Liberty).

Your Experience:  

Visitors will have the opportunity to go inside the historic Pitt Building and explore the Beauty Shoppe - a co-share office space that includes Pittsburgh's prominent entrepreneurs, artists, and creatives.  

Building Description:

A former HQ for the Americus Republican Club of Pittsburgh, where, 100 years ago, members could be found rubbing elbows with Teddy Roosevelt in the building's formidable billiard rooms. 

Fast forward to the present: Beauty Shoppe now represents the future-of-work for the city's burgeoning creative class and innovation economy. A better place to work, meet and network, Beauty Shoppe is a launchpad for anyone doing business in or attracting talent to downtown Pittsburgh.
