Pittsburgh - Oakland: Pittsburgh Athletic Association

Pittsburgh Athletic Association, at 4215 Fifth Avenue, was built in 1911 to the Venetian High Renaissance design of Benno Janssen. The Pittsburgh Athletic Association is a nonprofit membership club chartered in 1908. It continues today to offer comprehensive athletic facilities, sports lessons, spa services, fine dining, and overnight accommodations. Some of the building's more interesting features include a pool on the third floor, full basketball and squash courts, a 16 lane bowling alley, and a room dedicated to former University of Pittsburgh football coach Johnny Majors.

 

The Schenley Farms Historic District, part of the Schenley Farms-Oakland Civic District, is noted for its late 19th And 20th Century Revivals architecture, and home to a large portion of the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.

 

The Pittsburgh Athletic Association was designated a landmark by the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation in 1970.
