Station Square is a 52-acre (210,000 m2) indoor and outdoor shopping and entertainment complex located in the South Shore neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States across the Monongahela River from the Golden Triangle of downtown Pittsburgh. Station Square occupies the buildings and land formerly occupied by the historic Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad Complex, including the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad Station, which are separately listed on the National Register of Historic Places.Station Square is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
With 275,000 square feet (25,500 m2) of retail space, it features nearly 60 stores, restaurants and entertainment venues, including Highmark Stadium and the 396-room Sheraton at Station Square. As one of Pittsburgh's largest tourist destinations, it attracts more than three million people annually, including many Pittsburgh natives. The retail development was built at the location of a former station on the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad, with many of the original structures such as the freight house building and the concourse being converted into restaurants and a shopping mall. Proximity to a stop on the Port Authority of Allegheny County 'T' Pittsburgh Light Rail system, and the dock for the Gateway Clipper Fleet of local river cruise boats makes Station Square a major parking and jumping-off point for activities and events around the city. The property is operated by Brookfield Asset Management.
In 1979, the Station Square complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the "Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad Complex."
Station Square Reviews
Station square is always a good place for a night out. The restaurants are a little on the pricey side, but are all enjoyable. The great view of the city, the incline, and the Gateway Clipper make it a unique part of Pittsburgh. The only downside is it seems like it's always under construction which really takes away from the beauty of it.
Awesome place to eat , Hard Rock cafe , and Joe's crab shack very nearby. Sheraton hotel also closeby within walking distance of station square indoor or out door seating both available. Allegheny river is beautiful at night overlooking from station square . PNC Park and Heinz field are just across the river and the interstate with the downtown Pittsburgh skyline that's picturesque.
