• Residents concerned with redevelopment plans in Shadyside


    PITTSBURGH - There's a new proposal to redevelop the Shady Hill Center in Pittsburgh's Shadyside neighborhood. 

    The plan would downsize the Giant Eagle, adding roughly 200 apartments and a two-story parking garage to an already crowded section of the city.

    "The redevelopment would be what they call a right-sizing of the Giant Eagle, so it will be a slightly smaller Giant Eagle, but still a full-service grocery store," said Erika Strassman, a member of Pittsburgh's City Council.

    People who live in the area voiced their concerns about the plan at a community meeting Wednesday. They’re worried about traffic and accessibility to the grocery store.

    Strassman said nothing is set in stone. She’s planning a series of meetings soon to get more feedback from both residents and the developer, Echo Realty.
