The Bakery Square Courtyard Refresh solidified the vision of Bakery Square as a true mixed-use development that is integrated with the surrounding neighborhoods and holds an integral place in the life of Pittsburgh.

A 14,000 sq. ft. public courtyard energizes the heart of the development with mixed seating, a large lawn, and a small stage for live music and community events. A four-concept food hall; and Täkō Tôrtä, a lively fast-casual restaurant, created a dining destination that is highly sought after in Pittsburgh’s East End. A soaring, 3,200 sq. ft. glass and steel conservatory sits on the opposite side of the food hall and offers year-round indoor space for events, seating, and gathering.

The Bakery Square Courtyard Refresh has amplified and completed the ground-level activation along a dormant portion of Penn Avenue. The courtyard paired with complimentary amenities and retail has created an interconnected experience that encourages people to stay and play.

Our courtyard “refresh” project has totally transformed Bakery Square. Now, we are the go-to destination for people from all of the surrounding neighborhoods. With our variety of restaurants and shops – combined with our fully accessible indoor and outdoor public spaces, we have something for everyone. You can have an early coffee date at Starbucks or Panera, meet for lunch – sitting outside or inside, have a business meeting in our new conservatory, or meet for happy hour and dinner at the lively food hall, Täkō and Alta Via Pizza.
