The Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites of McCandless Crossing, along with Prospera Hospitality, is pleased to announce an “International Initiative” for welcoming international guests available now at the new 109 room Fairfield Inn & Suites in the Town of McCandless.
As part of her internship with Fairfield Inn developer AdVenture Development, Larissa Obst, a translation and interpretation student at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, spent 3 days translating information to benefit our international guests.
McCandless Crossing is a large, mixed-use development in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. This initiative is an important service to provide the community because of the large international presence in the North Hills. LaRoche College, located immediately adjacent to the hotel and McCandless Crossing, has a substantial international program and student population.
New Independent Bookstore, Riverstone Books, Opens in McCandless
Hampton Native Brings Books Back to the North Hills
October 5, 2017 – Pittsburgh – A new independent bookstore will open at McCandless Crossing in the North Hills next week. Riverstone Books will have its grand opening on Thursday, October 12, 2017, bringing a full-service, independent bookstore to the area for the first time in a decade. Owned and operated by Hampton-resident Barbara Jeremiah, Riverstone Books will feature a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, a spacious children’s section, and a selection of local authors and books about Pittsburgh.
“Independent bookstores are thriving in communities across the country, and as a lifelong resident of the North Hills, I knew we could support a bookstore here. In addition to connecting readers with the books they love, I’m really looking forward to hosting authors for readings and pop-up events to feature other independent Pittsburgh businesses,” said Ms. Jeremiah.
“McCandless Crossing is very pleased and excited to welcome Riverstone Books to the project. Independent bookstores are a vital part of a community. It was evident to us as we developed McCandless Crossing that the community had a strong commitment to education and reading, as evidenced by the several libraries and colleges in the area. I know Riverstone Books will be an excellent addition to the Town of McCandless and the greater North Hills area,” said Kevin Dougherty, Adventure Developmen
t principal and developer of McCandless Crossing.

Barbara Jeremiah has spent a career in corporate boardrooms, but she’s always felt at home among bookshelves. In 2012, that feeling moved her to join with a friend to buy Undercover Books in St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where she lives part of the year.
Barbara Jeremiah holds a copy of a Louise Penny novel, the first title to arrive at her new store, Riverstone Books in Pittsburgh.It’s also what’s inspired her to start up Pittsburgh’s newest independent bookstore, Riverstone Books, which is set to open in October in a massive “town center” development in the northern corner of the city.
“My husband and I always want to live someplace where there is a bookstore,” said Jeremiah, a Pittsburgh native who spent 32 years at Alcoa Inc. in legal and top executive roles. A lawyer by training and semi-retired now, Jeremiah still serves on several corporate boards.
The new store is a short hop from a former Borders site, and has at least one customer already lined up — Jeremiah’s mom. “A really underserved population with the closure of Borders are folks who can still drive, but won’t drive far. My mom is 92, but loves to read and wants to buy books,” Jeremiah said.
