At Landis Communities, we continue to grow our established reputation for excellence in serving aging adults. The name Landis has value—the history, the legacy, the excellent reputation. We are guided by our values of joy, compassion, integrity, stewardship and community, while staying faithful to the heritage established by our past leaders and are prepared to continue this legacy with each generation. Landis Communities is one organization with three distinct parts: continuing care retirement communities, home and community-based services, and affordable, low-income, and middle-income independent living options.
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.
One bedroom and two bedroom apartment units ranging in size from 700 to 1,000 square feet. Our Apartments provide large common areas and comfortable finishes. Browse our photo gallery to see photographs of the interior.
Renting at Steeple View Lofts does not provide a direct path to receiving advanced levels of care at Landis Homes, however an application for residency at any of our long-term care options, including Welsh Mountain Home, would be welcomed. Steeple View Lofts apartments are designed to appeal to those who desire to stay in their own home and renters may choose to purchase the 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.
Yes, the property pays full property taxes to the city, school district, and county.
One- or two-bedroom lofts, ranging in size from 700 SF to 1000 SF, include a kitchen, a living room, and a bathroom.
