The Heart of Pittsburgh’s East End
Close to major employers
Bakery Living is located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s East End, within two miles of top employers like UPMC, Carnegie Mellon University, Chatham University and the University of Pittsburgh. And Google is headquartered in Bakery Square, just footsteps away from the Bakery Living apartments.
Built for biking and hiking
Bakery Square is a truly walkable community, featuring many trendy stores and restaurants right on campus. Verdant Mellon Park is located next door, and it offers acres of trails to enjoy with your two -or four- footed friends. The onsite bike trail takes you to the heart of Shadyside, where you’ll discover abundant upscale shops, yoga studios and healthy eateries.
Convenient public transit
If you’d like to venture farther, getting where you want to go is effortless. Public transportation and Bike Share are readily accessible, and there’s also a handy shuttle service to and from CMU.
Bakery Square is shaping Pittsburgh’s new urban aesthetic, blending historic architecture with innovative green construction. What was home to a Nabisco cracker baking factory in 1918 is now a contemporary center for living, featuring sustainable construction and amenities that support an active, socially centered lifestyle.
In 1918, East Liberty was a bustling urban neighborhood. The National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) chose this well-established transportation hub and vibrant marketplace for a new, generously sized manufacturing plant. For more than 80 years, the bakery perfumed the Pittsburgh neighborhood with the tantalizing scent of fresh bread and delicious snacks and employed well over 1,000 workers at a time.
