We discussed EBCO Park with Jeff and his experiences with the business center.

Why Did You Choose EBCO Park for Your Business?
When looking for space for the business, many of the spaces in the downtown area were too small, dated and priced at a premium. “I chose EBCO because I was able to get a good-sized office in an updated building at a fair price,” Driscoll remarked.

What Are The Reasons You Enjoy Being Located at EBCO Park?
Networking with the many different businesses located at EBCO Park has been a major benefit to the location. Driscoll discusses how the network inside the Park is an asset to both businesses and customers. “There are other businesses at EBCO that I have built relationships with. We are able to collaborate and refer clients to each other when the need arises. It is very convenient for the client,” he described.

The layout of the building and floor plan is convenient and makes for easy access for both businesses and clients. “The easy one-floor access for clients is great also. I have several older tax clients that appreciate the fact that my office is on the ground floor,” Driscoll said. 

The office and maintenance staff is always helpful and responsive. Maintenance issues that come up are handled in a very timely manner and professional manner. There have been many improvements to the buildings such as new emergency lighting, repainting of the hallways, updated decor in the common areas, and more. 

What Benefits of EBCO Park Would You Tell Anyone Looking for a New Location?
The buildings are easy to access with ample parking. The large lunch area in our building is a great bonus, and there is a conference room available when I have a meeting with a group of clients.

Driscoll says, “Hoffman United has been great to work with and I look forward to seeing what they do in the future to further improve EBCO Park!”

Tenant Showcase: Mega Media Factory

Jamey Stewart and his business, Mega Media Factory, have been long-term residents calling EBCO Park home for more than eight years. He has been able to stay in the same location and grow the business and physical location. The ease and flexibility to grow have provided Stewart a peace of mind to scale the space as the business grew.

Jamey Stewart, President and Owner of Mega Media Factory explained how he got started, “I started Mega Media Factory almost 10 years ago focusing strictly on creative services, and we have grown our client base from local and regional customers to clients all over the world. Mega Media Factory is a full-service, creative production company focusing on video production, audio production, website development, and digital signage solutions.

We discussed what it’s like housing a business in EBCO Park with Jamey and his experiences with the business center.

Why Did You Choose EBCO Park for Your Business?
I started the company in Pittsburgh and regularly traveled from Pittsburgh to visit my clients in Erie, Buffalo, and Cleveland.  Having strong family ties to the Erie Area, I made the decision to move myself, and the company to Erie.  Due to this move, I ended up reviewing a few different office rentals, but my then future Father-In-Law recommended I take a peek at EBCO.  I was immediately greeted and shown a few different office spaces that would have worked great and ultimately settled on the office I’m still currently in.  We have grown our business significantly since, and EBCO has always been a great location for us.

What Are The Reasons You Enjoy Being Located at EBCO Park?
There are many reasons but most of which are location and flexibility.  EBCO is perfectly located for my business.  We are one minute away from major highways, a few minutes from the Erie International Airport, and only a couple of minutes from other Erie attractions and the bayfront.  

Flexibility here has been the biggest perk.  As the business has grown, we have been able to grow our physical footprint within EBCO Park.  We started as a single office, grew to a second, then a third, and now even a fourth.  All of this has been very easy.  The Hoffman United team has been easy to work with and responsive whenever I had questions.

What Benefits of EBCO Park Would You Tell Anyone Looking for a New Location?
Location, Flexibility, Accessibility, Clean, Safe.  These are just some of the reasons why I choose to stay at EBCO.  One of the biggest decisions a business owner can make is where to locate their business.  Having a safe and professional environment for my employees and customers to come is really important to me.  Having a landlord that is responsive to questions and requests is important.  But mostly, having a landlord who is a partner that values business growth, long-term relationships and offers flexibility and understanding, is beyond helpful, as our business requires changes

Jamey says, “If you are looking for a space for your business, I highly suggest taking a look at EBCO Park!”

W. 6th Street Erie Pa

The Brooks Home at 437 W. 6th Street

W. 6th Street Facade Improvement Phase


The home located on Millionaire Row, part of the West Sixth Street Historic District in Erie, PA, was built in 1885. The house became known as the “William Brooks House” after Captain William Brooks retired in Erie to live at the residence between 1892-1913. Captain Brooks was one of the captains of the USS Michigan, which later became the USS Wolverine. 

In 1913, the house became the residence of Rt. Rev. Rogers Israel, a bishop in the Episcopal Church. The property later housed Cornell Abraxas, a residential substance abuse treatment center for teens, and was then purchased by the Erie County Bar Association along with the neighboring lot which would become their new headquarters.

Hoffman United Takes Ownership

In 2017, Hoffman United took ownership of the house from ECBA saving it from demolition. Once obtaining the property, Hoffman United renovated the building to become a six-unit apartment complex. 


The previous layout of the three-story property was a crowded floor plan to accommodate all of the patients of the treatment center. The home has been transformed into six modern apartments that are newly renovated with many amenities. 

The six units include 1 & 2 bedroom options and range from 750 – 1200 square feet. The floor plans now include modern large bright rooms, central air, laundry in each unit, and hard surface countertops.  (After Pictures: Zillow.com)
