Regent Square

Regent Square conveniently stretches from one main major artery, the Parkway East, to another, Forbes Avenue. From Hulley homes to health and healing to hip boutiques, Regent Square has something for all ages and every ilk.

With its cultural amenities, vibrant business district and proximity to a world-class park, this small charmer of a neighborhood has emerged a residential jewel as well as a destination spot. Its welcoming wide streets are graced with architecturally significant homes.

Regent Square oozes community and civic pride, with an impressive lineup of locally-owned businesses, services and nonprofits. Not a chain among them.

Dubbed by many as "a small town within the city," this community enjoys a central location, two bus lines, bike-friendly terrain, and an authentic neighborhood camaraderie. Add brick-paved, tree-lined streets and beckoning sidewalks, and you've got a recipe for irresistible urban living. Along Braddock Avenue, riders can pick up the 61B bus route to Squirrel Hill, Oakland and Downtown, or the P71 to Downtown, which zips along the Martin Luther King Jr. East Busway. Parts of Regent Square are also a short walk away from the busway's Hamnett Station, served by the P1, among other express routes. Additionally, the 61A picks up at Forbes and Braddock, also serving Squirrel Hill, Oakland and Downtown, while the 71 provides local service along Braddock Avenue, connecting to Edgewood Towne Center on one end and the Wilkinsburg Busway Station on the other.
