Lawrenceville is home to over 22 “New Tech” companies and continues to grow. Grounded by a strong hospital network, proximity to downtown Pittsburgh and an energetic community, people of all ages have began to flock to the area.
Lawrenceville stretches from the eastern edge of the Strip District, barely a mile from Downtown, along the banks of the Allegheny River. Nearly 11,000 people call the 2.5 square miles home.
The Butler Street business district has become a national destination – boasting countless restaurants for every palate, eclectic bars with live music, one of a kind specialty shops, riverfront walking and biking trails, parks, recreational fields and much more.
There is something for everyone here- shopping, dining and recreation, you name it.
