Shive-Hattery Architectural Intern Jerry Rodriguez said, “I can't express how much it means to be able to represent my culture and give back to the Hispanic community through design.”
Rodriguez helped design the Tu Empresa business incubator where entrepreneurs will learn business skills and strategy in the facility.
The commercial kitchen, called Tu Cocina Food Hub, will serve as both a food preparation classroom and a resource for food businesses. The Gateway will also offer space for entrepreneurs to store equipment as they grow.
