The Loretta Claiborne Building was named after a York resident who was born with many physical limitations and overcame them to become a Special Olympian and an international spokesperson for Special Olympics. Health and educational services are offered to the community by the various tenants of this building. Located on the first floor, AZ Land Café provides a variety of prepared food choices and Starbucks coffee to area workers and residents.
