Alive With Culture



In a city built on steel but driven by culture, Shadyside Commons is located in the vibrant Shadyside neighborhood of Pittsburgh.  Whether you are a single student, young professional, a growing family, or an empty-nester, the location of our 1- and 2-bedroom apartment rentals have a lot to offer.  

We are just blocks away from many colleges and universities, including the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC-Shadyside, and Carnegie Mellon.  After class or work enjoy one of the many cultural experiences near our apartment community, such as Pittsburgh’s museums or restaurants. If shopping is your weekend activity of choice, nearby Ellsworth Avenue and Walnut Street provide plenty of unique options ranging from practical to artsy. 

For young families, you don’t need to trade city living for education: Be sure to take advantage of the great schools and many fun activities close by. If access to outdoor spaces is important to you, relax at one of the numerous parks and green spaces.
