"Luxurious" and "distinguished" are just two of the many words that could be used to describe the recently renovated Lancaster Press Building.

Located at the corner of N. Prince Street and W. Lemon Street in downtown Lancaster, the building, represented by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Homesale Realty, boasts 48 residential condominiums within its six-story frame. While many units have been sold, there are still others waiting to catch the eye of the right city-loving buyer.

Originally designed by esteemed Lancaster architect C. Emlen Urban, the masonry-concrete building initially served as the S.R. Moss Cigar Company and was used for tobacco storage, curing, and processing. Eventually, the building became the property of New Era Publishing, Inc. and then Lancaster Press, Inc., efficiently operating as such until 1992.

Since that time the building stood mostly vacant, waiting for both timing and ambition to strike simultaneously. Luckily, that perfect moment hit in 2014 when one of the principal members of Lancaster Press Partners, LP, The Drogaris Companies, decided to pursue the project for residential development. Owner and operator Ed Drogaris has been an active supporter of various economic development and ecological preservation initiatives in the past, and his company had even previously renovated two of The Press Building's neighboring structures, making the opportunity to revamp this complex more than ideal.

To say the building has come a long way since its original days as the cigar company could be an understatement, however, Tippetts / Weaver Architects have purposefully incorporated The Press Building's historical roots into the new configuration. With its high ceilings, exposed brick and beams, and large windows, the innate, industrial feel of this architectural gem shines through, tying in seamlessly with the contemporary touches chosen by its occupants.

Beginning at a medium price point, the 926-1650 sq. ft. units range between 1-2 bedrooms, some even including an additional study. Each condo is customizable to ensure buyers feel right at home as soon as they settle. Some of the features that can be tailored to the owner's liking include: hardwood flooring, ceramic bathroom tile, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, kitchen cabinets, paint colors, plumbing fixtures, and lighting fixtures. For those buyers less inclined to choose their own design features, pre-decorated units are also available.

Conducive to an active lifestyle brimming with interaction, the building features a rooftop deck with a fire pit, gas grill, tables, and chaise lounges. Furthermore, for a touch of the natural world, a green wall and planters are also included. The earthy elements help soften the expanding urban cityscape.

For space-saving convenience, each condo is issued a storage unit to use as they wish. Plus, parking has also been considered, as residents have access to either one or two parking spaces on the lower level of the nearby North Queen Street Garage. The entire garage is lighted and secured for safety, and residents can enter with the use of their access card.

The residency comes with convenient, walkable access to many of the city's alluring attractions such as the Fulton Theatre, Central Market, and numerous popular cafes and restaurants. In fact, to bring a bit of the city's dining experience directly to the tenants, a 5995 square foot restaurant is expected to open to the public on the building's first floor in early 2018. Room service to each of the condos will be provided.

These stylish condos truly signify a new era for The Lancaster Press Building, and, to top it off, the elegant restaurant will provide the community with a chance to regularly interact with the historic landmark.
