8th Street Pizza

New Albany’s pay-it-forward full service pizzeria.

8th Street Pizza, owned by the nonprofit Clean Socks Hope, Inc., located at the Breakwater Apartments on Spring Street.

8th Street Pizza started in 2016 to support Clean Socks Hope, and it transformed into a “pay what you can afford” restaurant to support community members who are homeless or low-income.

The owners have said the restaurant’s proceeds will be an “income-generator” for the Clean Socks Hope nonprofit to expand its programming in New Albany. The nonprofit is focused on partnerships with underserved neighborhoods such as Midtown.

Calhoun Construction is serving as the Construction Manager for the renovation of the New Albany location expansion and will be completed in 2022.


Unlike traditional staffing services, Prologistix recruits exclusively for logistics employees. Their recruiters are professionals who understand the industry and possess local market knowledge. They’re all internally certified in the basic skill sets common to warehouse environments and safety, including many OSHA standards and procedures. They also have a qualified forklift instructor and a risk and safety coordinator in every branch.

Calhoun served as construction manager and self-performed the interior fit out and renovation.  The project was 6,561 sq ft.
