Eberly Myers announces new community-focused project in downtown Lancaster.
Eberly Myers is happy to announce a new community-focused project located at 221-227 North Prince Street. This 175-200 unit rental community will focus on the 55+ population with services including memory care, assisted living, and independent living, adding new residential housing to a location currently with limited housing options.
Working with a well respected senior care provider, this amenity-rich facility will allow its residents to age in place, enabling them to stay in an urban environment with a walkability score of 98 - a walker’s paradise. It will include 10 affordable units and senior community rental prices will range from $750 - $3,700 per month.
Not only will the lives of its residents be enriched, the community will be invited to participate through programming and access to the building. We will be allocating over 20k square feet of commercial space including Anytime Fitness, a possible boutique grocer, cafe, and rooftop restaurant and bar with incredible city views. This project will further benefit the community by adding over 75 new quality jobs.
We are committed to Lancaster city and are working hard to create healthy, thriving, walkable and sustainable communities for all residents. We look for the same commitment in our partnerships, which is why we are pleased to announce that our partners for the 221-227 project will include:
Light-Heigel & Associates Inc.
These partners bring expertise and talent to the table, as well as a shared passion for the community, and historical value of Lancaster. While collectively we are excited about this project and what it brings to downtown, we also understand there are challenges. After inspections, research, and much consideration, it has been determined that there is a need to replace the current building at 227 N Prince St but will look to restore the facade of 221 N Prince St. to help maintain the historic fabric of this city. We firmly believe in maintaining the historical integrity of our downtown, but we also need to consider the safety issues with this building due to the structural challenges within the building's history. While we hate to lose this building, we will work to maintain the stories that are important to the fabric of our history by memorializing its past in the Teller Brothers/Reed Tobacco Historic District.
We understand our projects make an impact in our community, that is why our team works closely with local organizations including but not limited to The City of Lancaster, LHOP, and Lancaster City Alliance, having ongoing crucial conversations around community-focused housing.
Our mission is to reframe the current thinking around housing options, by actively looking for creative solutions while cultivating partnerships that bring a real sense of community into the buildings our residents live in. We believe this project is an excellent example of this kind of creative thinking. Not only does it help to address the current housing crisis we are experiencing, but it also falls in line with the city’s plan to become more age-friendly while adding much-needed services to the place we love and call home.
We look forward to sharing updates as this project progresses.
