Historic East Side Suites: Background

After going on the market just four months ago, The Historic East Side luxury apartments on East King Street are quickly being leased. In fact, only four of the apartments are still available. An area just east of the square in downtown Lancaster, once known for abandoned storefronts, discount retail, and an unkept appearance is undergoing a major makeover. Like many cities across the country Lancaster is seeing an increased interest in city living. Young professionals,young families, retirees and empty nesters are the top demographic categories reclaiming their weekends and saying goodbye to the rider mower.

Meeder Development Corporation is proud of the transformation it has done with the once forgotten spaces on the 100 block of East King Street, dating back to 1859. The age of these buildings is a great thing because they were originally constructed in such a way that noise is virtually impassable through walls and floors.This lends to a quiet homelife that is still in the heart of the action downtown. John Meeder, the President of Meeder Development Corporation, has been the catalyst to many revitalization projects in Lancaster City and has a genuine interest in sharing his love for downtown living. He says that a downtown city life leaves endless possibilities for entertainment, dining, saving on gas, and most importantly connecting with your community.

The apartments feature granite countertops, hardwood floors, spacious indoor and outdoor living spaces, on-site parking and each unit has a unique floorplan. The Historic East Side is 4 stories tall, and features remaining apartments that range in size from 1,655 to 1,955 feet. There are a mixture of one and two-bedroom and one and two-bathroom apartments. Meeder points to convenience and location as the Historic East Sides two greatest attributes. He boasts that the apartments are in close walking distance to Lancaster General Hospital, universities, the courthouse, and Lancaster County Convention Center. In addition, Meeder points to Gallery Row, the fine downtown bistros, central and eastern farmers markets and the “funky boutiques” as also being within convenient ambling distance.

While the luxurious features and convenient location of the Historic East Side Suites are two perks, Meeder says the community within is what makes it such a nice place to live. Most of the current residents hail from the suburbs and consist of CEO’s, journalists, young professionals, and retirees who work in nearby office buildings. Take a trip to the Historic East Side and experience the community being built between residents, business owners and management.
