The main Bakery Square building was built as a Nabisco factory in 1918 and operated until 1998. Regional Industrial Development Corporation of Southwest Pennsylvania bought the building in 1999 and leased it to the Atlantic Baking Company, which was subsequently merged with Bake-Line Group and then went bankrupt in 2004. In 2006, the City of Pittsburgh declared the building blighted, paving the way for a redevelopment plan by Walnut Capital in 2007. The building opened after remodeling in May 2010.

In June 2014, President Barack Obama visited TechShop, a workshop and prototyping studio, in Bakery Square.

Bakery Square has 216,080 square feet of office space. More than half the space is leased by Google. Other tenants include:

    Google operates an office in Bakery Square. A piece of the Nabisco factory's original equipment, a large dough mixer, was left standing in homage to the site's industrial roots. As of January 2011, Google was leasing approximately 115,000 square feet (10,700 m2) of office space in the complex, though not all of it was yet developed and filled with employees.

Construction began on a project named "Bakery Square 2.0," this new development will create a combination of new office space and residential development.
