About Wilkinsburg

Why Wilkinsburg? Because It Makes Sense!

We are really excited over all of the change that is occurring in our community and would like for you to be a part of it.

Whether you are looking for a nice place to visit, shop, dine or live- we believe Wilkinsburg is the place for you.

Here are a few of the reasons we are so enthusiastic about this community:

Wilkinsburg has an excellent location, situated in Pittsburgh’s east end. This is a suburban community with an urban fabric that contains all of the conveniences of city life without all of the hassles.

Wilkinsburg has an abundance of beautiful historic housing, two Port Authority BusWay stations, and less than a mile from all of the East Liberty development and Google offices. Also the Borough is very flat and easy to bike to nearby neighborhoods. Basically, you can get anywhere in the City within 15 minutes, by bus, car or bike!

Wilkinsburg is #OpenForBusiness

If you are a business you should consider all of the foot and automobile traffic that passes Penn Avenue daily, approximately 18,000 cars. It is a terrific place to grow a business in an up and coming area with high volumes of potential customers.

We have a thriving and emerging arts community with many local artists finding a home with the abundance of affordable housing, gallery storefronts, and community gathering spaces. There is also enough available land for urban gardeners and farmers looking to live a more sustainable life.
