The Hollander Project  

 

The Hollander Project

In the early 1900's, 910 Braddock Avenue was the site of Hollander's Drug Store, one of no less than four drug stores that served Braddock residents during its heyday.

Opened on July 28th 2018, The Hollander Project at 910 Braddock Avenue is an innovative coworking space for local, female business owners. As of early August, nine local, woman-powered business are run out of the building including:

Royal Outlawzz
Oli's Angels
East Side Laser Center
Beauty in Brokenness
Lashed by Bebe
C.M.C.S
Mary Nesby, Notary
Parties by Cakes by Joelisa

In addition to providing office and multi-purpose space, For Good PGH will also bring programming, including workshops and talks with entrepreneurs, Executive Directors and innovators for the Hollander’s tenants, as well as the greater community at large. A monthly scheduled resume assistance program as well as several professional development trainings will be available. Interview clothing in a variety of sizes and styles will be available for women to borrow, courtesy of Free Store 15104.

Through professional development opportunities, including financial trainings, empowerment exercises, and motivational speakers, we seek to create an inspiring and supportive environment where women can build and grow their businesses, as well as their knowledge and their networks.
