Pittsburgh, PA, September 12th, 2017 — Award-winning marketing innovation studio Deeplocal has finalized a lease with 35k square footage of office, shop, and storage space at 1601 Marys Ave. in Sharpsburg, PA. The new location is historically noteworthy as the former Fort Pitt Brewing Company office, built in 1906. Deeplocal will occupy the entire third floor and a portion of the first floor, tripling their current office space and enlarging their shop space to accommodate expected growth. Once stretching across several blocks in Sharpsburg, the Fort Pitt Brewing Company grounds and remaining buildings are now home to a number of other companies, including the newly-opened Hitchhiker Brewing Company.
Deeplocal announced their acquisition by WPP, the world’s largest communications services group, in April. The move will enable the company to continue to serve the needs of their global clients and expand staff in the Pittsburgh region. Deeplocal has been in The Strip District since 2012 and plans to be completely relocated to Sharpsburg by the end of the year.
“We like being a part of neighborhoods that are still a bit under the radar. We started in East Liberty, and then moved to The Strip—both neighborhoods which have recently seen a surge in development. We feel that Sharpsburg is now similarly poised to explode in popularity,” said Deeplocal CEO and Co-Founder Nathan Martin. “We’ve already met with many of our new neighbors and everyone has been very welcoming—we couldn’t be more excited to be making this special community our new home.”
There will be a meeting to introduce Deeplocal to the Sharpsburg community on Thursday, September 14th from 6-7 p.m. at the Sharpsburg Community Library, featuring a presentation from Deeplocal and an open Q&A.
