PITTSBURGH, PA — Burns Scalo Real Estate is proud to announce that it has signed a lease with locally owned and operated Convive Coffee at 225 North Shore, Burns Scalo’s premiere North Shore office building.
The new North Shore location aims to serve up its ethically and sustainably sourced caffeinated specialties and small bites to a growing entertainment district that historically has had no coffee or grab-and-go options. Owners Ryland and Katie Weber opened the first Convive Coffee at McCandless Crossing in 2016. Since then, they have added three more locations — Mars, Lawrenceville, and now on the North Shore.
“The addition of Convive Coffee to 225 North Shore is our clients’ ultimate attraction and retention tool. The coffee shop will create buzz on the first floor- providing a dining, meeting, relaxing, and entertainment space.” said Ruby Scalo, Leasing Specialist at Burns Scalo Real Estate.

“We recognized that the North Shore properties lacked a café or truly any establishment open before 11 am. Convive Coffee will be the only coffee shop or café along the river in The Entertainment District, and I anticipate it to be a huge draw for both our internal building clients and the public,” Scalo added.
Convive Coffee Owner, Katie Weber, stated, “Convive brings each guest the unique experience of tasting seasonally fresh coffees of dynamic origin; expertly sourcing, sampling, and small-batch roasting from passionate farmers about innovative processing methods. We prioritize building coffee teams of roasting professionals and baristas who value the education and practice of their craft. We hope everyone in our community finds a place at the table with the perfect cup of coffee. Cheers!”

Convive Coffee is anticipated to open its doors in early 2023.
