Am just beginning to utilize this website and noticed your question from several weeks ago. A contractor is renovating a major property in Shaler, conveniently located and on the bus line. It will not be completed in the next few months, but apartments and eventually patio homes will be available in the near future. Let me know if you have any interest in contacting the developer. Also, I live in Shaler and do most of my business in the Shaler, Allison Park area where my office is located. I would be glad to give your mother an opinion about her own home.
