Can You Dig It? Ground Breaks on New Building

The rubber hit the road…or in this case, the shovel hit the dirt on March 10, when Erie Insurance broke ground on a previously announced seven-story office building in downtown Erie, Penn. Community leaders and neighbors were on hand as ERIE executives took the symbolic first step on the project.

“We’re creating a workspace designed for employees to continue delivering exceptional service to our employees and agents,” explained Tim NeCastro, CEO of Erie Insurance. “It’s a proud investment in the community we call home. Helping to create and sustain a vibrant Erie community is essential to the well-being of the people who live and work here.” 

The 346,000 square foot, LEED-certified building is designed for the 21st Century workplace, with large open floorplans, a roof-top terrace, vegetated roofs, a courtyard and large collaboration areas.

Construction is expected to last three years.
