North Shore is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh's North Side. Its zip code is 15212.

It is home to Acrisure Stadium, PNC Park, and The Andy Warhol Museum.

History and features[edit]

Developing rapidly around and between the two stadiums, the neighborhood has representation on Pittsburgh City Council by council members for District 1 (North Neighborhoods) and 6 (North Shore/Downtown Neighborhoods).

Two new light rail stations opened in the spring of 2012. The North Side station is located beside PNC Park and near the north portal of the Allegheny River Tunnel. Allegheny station is located by Acrisure Stadium and is the current western terminus of the line.

Future development[edit]

In October 2014, two 11-story office skyscrapers were proposed for the area by local parking lot manager Alco Parking. The project is likely to move forward, as soon as an anchor tenant can be found.[2][3]

Surrounding and adjacent Pittsburgh neighborhoods[edit]

North Shore runs along the Allegheny River and its confluence with the Monongahela River to form the Ohio River. It is bordered by Chateau to the west, Allegheny West to the northwest, Allegheny Center to the north, East Allegheny to the northeast, and Troy Hill to the east. The Roberto Clemente, Andy Warhol, and Rachel Carson Bridges provide direct links to Downtown Pittsburgh as do the first southbound exits across the Veterans and Fort Duquesne Bridges.
