The Innovation Center at Wilkes-Barre is the adaptive reuse of the former Woolworth 5 and 10 Store built in 1951, for a new mixed use facility consisting of retail, business incubator, and state-of-the-art class "A" office space in downtown Wilkes-Barre. It was designed as a trendsetter for revitalizing the community and business district and strategically placed to catalyze redevelopment where urban infrastructure exists. The Innovation Center is located at the center of the region's public transit system, and in walking distance from housing, recreation, and two institutions of higher learning.
