Benefits of being an entrepreneur:

You may have clicked on this page because you are a risk taker, independent in your thinking and want to be in business for yourself.  Does that sound about right?  If you answered yes, you are an entrepreneur and Station Square is the place for you!  Short term leasing or “Specialty” Leasing is a great way to test market a product with less of a time commitment, lower overhead costs and operating on an RMU (cart) means instant visibility to the shopper because your business is situated in the open common area.   

“I’ve been a Bessemer Court cart and kiosk tenant for nine years, which is since the courtyard was opened.  Over the years, locals and tourists have come back each year and have supported my businesses because I am a familiar face.  It is a fun and vibrant environment that draws families which matches my target demographic.”

-          David Casimiri , Owner of Designer Inspired Sunglasses & New York Original

“Most tourists that come to Pittsburgh come to Station Square because it is one of the city’s most popular tourist destinations.  There are a lot of amenities offered in one location.  These type of visitors keep our business thriving.”

-          R.P. McMurphy, Owner of Segway In Paradise


List of opportunities:

Typically there is an array of Specialty Leasing opportunities available within a shopping center.  Here are some examples:

RETAIL MERCHANDISING UNITS (also known as RMU’s or carts) are the most flexible rental option available.  Choose from our large 6’ X 4’ RMU inside the Freight House Shops or our 4’ X 4’ RMU outside in Bessemer Court for selling your product or advertising your service or product.  The Freight House Shops RMU’s are available for a one month rental up to one year.  The Bessemer Court RMU’s are required to be rented for the spring/summer season of May 1st thru September 30th.


FLOATING RETAIL (also known as kiosks or tour buses) give you the ability to bring in your own merchandising unit to either sell your product or promote your service.  Different footprint sizes are available throughout the common area of the Freight House Shops, on Station Square Drive or in one of our parking lots.


TEMPORARY IN-LINE STORES are an option for rental when a permanent storefront would be vacant and become available for a short term.  This option gives you an opportunity to maximize your footprint, test your product and establish your business for later consideration of expanding into a permanent long term lease.
