SFA News - Slice of "Pi"

A cool little project of ours is finishing up down the street and we're happy to see the addition to the neighborhood.  More about the architecture in the coming months but for now the story is about economic development and nurturing innovation.  See an excerpt from the article below and follow the link to read more.

"The name "Pi" comes from the facility's formal name, Partnership for Innovation. Plus, adds city enterprise zone coordinator Bekah Rusnock, pi is an accessible mathematical concept that could communicate the fact that Bethlehem has a bustling high-tech sector.

"The general public doesn't realize that there are a lot of tech companies in Bethlehem," Rusnock says.

Pi's 8,000 square feet have a modern, industrial vibe. Century-old brick walls and tall windows combine with transparent office dividers and exposed pipes. Shared amenities include a kitchenette, conference room and copy machine. Besides that, tenants can take advantage of three 36-foot-square "conversation rooms" just big enough for a phone call or informal meeting between two colleagues. One restroom has a shower where workers can bathe after riding their bikes to work or clearing their heads with a run on a nearby railroad track that's been converted to a jogging trail – another result of studies by the innovation zone."
