About Regent Square

We get this question alot... "Where is Regent Square, and what streets make up the boundary?". This is our best attempt to date to draw a map of the streets of Regent Square.

Regent Square is best defined by several street or landmark borders:

  • Frick Park borders Regent Square on the west

  • Forbes Avenue (and eventually a jog onto Union Street) on the north

  • South Trenton Avenue on the East

  • One street back from I-376 (the Parkway) above Greendale Avenue
    to the South - effectively one block south of Sanders

  • Also the entirety of South Braddock from Forbes to I-376

Traffic
Study

In 2002 the Regent Square Civic Association secured a small grant with the help of the Allegheny County Executive and the City of Pittsburgh to perform a traffic study and make general recommendations for the South Braddock corridor in Regent Square. The study was professionally done by Vollmer Associates for the Civic Association. While this study is dated its underlying recommendations and data bout the character and traffic of Regent Square still has some currency with the Regent Square Neighborhood.
