There's More In Store For The Square — And Beyond

Now that the Mayor and other local luminaries snipped the yellow ribbon last week to officially mark the grand reopening of Market Square, we want to make sure that you know there are plenty more developments happening in the Square and beyond its four corners. And a lot of it's happening right now. 

Even though the City of Pittsburgh, the URA and the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership put their finishing touches on the Square's stunning transformation over the past 18 months, many other private and public projects are ready to leap from the drawing board and into reality. That's why we're letting you get this sneak peek at what's in the works in and around the Square. 

Of course, you can see plenty of action in the Square itself as the old Jenny Lee building gets a much needed makeover and Fat Tommy's pizzeria will sport a new look soon, too. Plus, more exciting businesses will set up shop in the Square in the months ahead. Even though Bourbon Street's a few hundred miles a way, NoLa will bring a taste of the French Quarter to Pittsburgh when this exciting eatery opens just in time for Mardi Gras. For a some South of the Border cuisine, we say ole to the new Chipotle and its aways fresh approach to Mexican fare. For saltier appetites, the Penn Ave. Fish Co. brings the catch of the day to its new Forbes Avenue location, and Winghart's Burgers and Whiskey Bar will serve two of America's favorites in the Square very soon. And that's just for starters. 

Everyone knows that Downtown is Pittsburgh's newest neighborhood. Well, Market Square might just be the fastest growing enclave in the center of it all. Square dwellers are already enjoying the best of urban living at MarketSquare Place, the site of the old New Diamond Market and Murphy's building. For a more intimate habitat, the Residences at Market at Fifth offers cozy living space on Graeme Street, one of the shortest roads in all of Pittsburgh. Of course, you can rise above it all in the sky-high condos in the glass towers of Three PNC Plaza, lean out the window watching an event from the two apartments above Primanti's, or enjoy the views from the Dahlmeyer Building on Liberty, where another amazing restoration project is shaping up fast. And when we look into our crystal ball, we see even more retail and residential projects in the work in the very near future. 

And don't forget that we're extending the Farmer's Market in the Square through the end of the year and the Seasons of Light holiday display that will dazzle and delight visitors each night well past New Year's Day. You know, when you think about it, there's always something new taking place in the Square.
