What is Steeple View Lofts?
Steeple View Lofts, an affiliate of Landis Communities, is a 36-unit rental complex designed for active adults, age 55 and older that offers city loft rentals to those wanting to live in the heart of vibrant downtown Lancaster, PA.
The building, at 118 North Water Street, was developed by Zamagias Properties, headquartered in Pittsburgh. Zamagias is engaged in a broad range of business ventures including real estate development and management, healthcare resource management technology, banking and finance, and energy development. Other projects in Lancaster include The Keppel Building and 101NQueen. In addition to the residential rental units, the first floor features retail space with tenants such as Miesse Candies and Friendship Heart Gallery.
Why does Landis Communities offer rental apartments?
In the summer of 2008, we began our strategic planning with a period of listening. Our board and management contacted over 150 stakeholders in Landis Homes, asking questions about our strengths and potential for improvement. One strong theme heard from stakeholders was to develop urban active adult living options in Lancaster City, including options for those from a wide variety of economic situations. This is our first step in this effort. In addition, state and federal leaders are encouraging aging services providers to offer a wider selection of services specifically designed to keep people in their homes for as long as possible.
What kind of lofts are available?
One and two bedroom apartment units ranging in size from less than 800 square feet to lofts that are over 1,000 square feet. Our Apartments provide large common areas and comfortable finishes.
Are there income requirements?
No; Steeple View Lofts provides rental apartments at market rates in downtown Lancaster. Landis Communities is working on additional projects across a wide spectrum of costs.
Will I have access to skilled nursing care at Landis Homes?
Renting at Steeple View Lofts does not provide a direct path to receiving advanced levels of care at Landis Homes. However, renters may choose to purchase services of Landis At Home, a licensed Home Care agency, offering personal care and support services to persons in their homes. Carefully trained home care aides and homemakers provide services. Although these services are available, these apartments are designed to appeal to those not desiring nursing care.
Since Landis Communities is nonprofit does Steeple View pay taxes?
Steeple View pays full property taxes to the city, school district, and county.
