    PITTSBURGH - Working with the broad outline of a plan, Echo Realty LP took its proposal to redevelop its Shady Hill Center to the community on Thursday evening, working to gather feedback on a mixed-use plan to add a 220-unit apartment project to what’s expected to be a reoriented strip mall.

    It’s a plan to replace a more than 50,000-square-foot Giant Eagle store with one that would be smaller but fully updated and to bring a residential component to commercially zoned site on Penn Avenue in Shadyside.
