Brick. Mortar. Heart. Soul.

Block22 is an innovative, mix-use, living-learning community in downtown Pittsburg, KS.

Developed through a unique partnership between Pittsburg State University, the City of Pittsburg and the Vecino Group, Block22 transforms four historic buildings at 4th and Broadway into an entrepreneurial epicenter. In the fall of 2018, Block22 was selected as one of the top university-led projects in the nation by the University Economic Development Association.

The city’s forefathers originally platted Pittsburg into 51 blocks. The oldest building included in the Block22 project, the Opera House Hotel, was located in Block 22 of the original map. Hence, the moniker Block22.

Transformative projects like Block 22 are only possible when communities are willing to participate as partners. As a developer, it’s incredibly rewarding to lead the process and see the benefit of positive collaboration.
