Renovated Trinity Building Makes Debut in Butler

The former Trinity Industries building in Butler, fresh from a yearlong, $1 million rehabilitation, is open for business.

A project of the Butler Community Development Corp., the building was debuted at an event described by corporation executive director Ken Raybuck as “Deal Day.”

The building sits on about 5.5 acres of an expansion to the original 29-acre Pullman Center Business Park site.

Renovation of the former Trinity building, a 30,000-square-foot structure, is considered another phase of the development of the Pullman Center, which straddles the border between the city and Butler Township.

“Deal Day” was held Sept. 27 as an opportunity for potential tenants and buyers to see the newest part of the Pullman Center project.

The Trinity building is suitable for manufacturing and warehouse uses. It has a paved parking lot, a dock with three oversized overhead doors and a sprinkler system. The Pullman Center Business Park is equipped with all necessary infrastructure, such as roads and utilities.

The Pullman Center Business Park is the redevelopment of the former Pullman Standard Railcar Co. property.

A $3 million grant presented to the community corporation by Gov. Ed Rendell in 2006 was used to redevelop the Pullman site.

The renovated Trinity building is in Pullman Center Business Park with four office buildings: Pullman Condominium Office Building, Bantam Commons, Pullman Commerce Center and Pullman Commons.

Mr. Raybuck said all office buildings except the Trinity building were fully occupied.

“The full occupancy is a testament to the good location and we hope this building will not remain vacant long,” Mr. Raybuck said, noting that there had been some inquiries about the property.
