On August 28, the Mosaic team in Pittsburg was hard at work moving from the temporary Mosaic office on Centennial Drive to a new office on North Broadway. When our staff moved from Rouse to Centennial Drive one year ago, we knew the location was only temporary. During that year, our team in Pittsburg toured close to 50 buildings in the area, spoke with property owners, real estate agents and developers and researched every option to find our permanent home. Ultimately, a new location was chosen and the crew began work to renovate the building.
