Discover Hobart Commons in Squirrel Hill!!

Posted on: June 27, 2012

Squirrel Hill’s stately Hobart Commons (Lobos Management) is just a stone’s throw from all of the attractions available in one of Pittsburgh’s most lively neighborhoods. Located between Beacon Street and Murray Avenue, Hobart Commons provides quick access to the bustling heart of Squirrel Hill’s shopping, dining, and nightlife.

Murray Avenue celebrates one of the most diverse stretches of restaurants within the city limits. Along just a few short blocks of Murray Avenue, you can find some of the best pizza in the city (Aiello’s or Mineo’s), taste the exotic flavors of the Bangkok Balcony, sample Thai tapas at the Silk Elephant, or enjoy a kosher lunch at the Milky Way. The blocks of Forbes Avenue that run through Squirrel Hill are also dotted with boutique and specialty shops: Little’s Super Shoe StoreMargaret’s Fine ImportsTen Thousand Villages, as well as some great cafés / coffee shops. One of the neighborhood’s most iconic destinations for nightlife is the Squirrel Hill Café, affectionately referred to as “the squirrel cage” by locals and regulars.

Another rare and exciting attribute to the neighborhood is the historic Manor Theatre. The Theatre – which is currently celebrating its 90th anniversary – features an eclectic blend of artistic independent films and major contemporary blockbusters. Although recently renovated, the Manor still maintains all of its original charm and is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon or evening at the movies.

Squirrel Hill also allows easy access to two of the city’s largest parks / recreation areas: Schenley Park and Frick Park. The Sportsplex at Schenley Park hosts thirteen tennis courts, an all-weather track for running, a soccer field, cross country trails, and a skating rink. Also within the park limits is the Bob O’Connor Golf Course, an 18-hole course complete with snack bar services, practice greens, and an indoor virtual practice area. Schenley Park also boasts a full disc golf course as well as a city pool, perfect for cooling off on a hot summer day. Frick Park also has tennis courts and trails, but the most interesting amenity of the park is the bowling green – the only public bowling green in the city.

Also noteworthy about the prime location of Hobart Commons is its proximity to the Waterfront, home to Dave and Buster’s, the Pittsburgh Improv comedy club, Costco, and the largest movie theater in the city (AMC Loew’s). There are also many retail stores at the Waterfront including TargetLowesDick’s Sporting GoodsMarshall’sthe Gap, and Old Navy.

Hobart Commons offers both 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, many with refinished hardwood floors. Kitchens and bathrooms have also been recently renovated, and some units include additional sunrooms.

With access to so much just blocks from this Lobos Management property, Hobart Commons offers all the benefits of city life in a residential neighborhood.
