Erie Insurance development

Seems that this company is constantly expanding its footprint in downtown Erie. They've been demolishing many properties on Erie's lower east side over the past few years... which I'm not totally in favor of (though most were houses long gone), but have also done some great preservation work.

Recent announcements detail a new 52K foot technical training center on a former surface lot on E 7th to adjoin their new parking garage on East 8th, a "Heritage Center" at there original office, and restoration of the PA Natl Guard Armory at E 6th and Parade. Good to see investment by a Fortune 500 company in downtown!

The large surface parking lot at center has been rumored as the site for their new HQ tower.

Historically-accurate restoration of two Victorian homes on Erie's Lower East Side, with the former Armory (currently undergoing restoration) in the background.
