Time is running out to join the Press Building community

Few condos remain; $15,000 incentive ends June 30

Life at the Lancaster Press Building is about more than simply enjoying your upscale condo with luxury amenities. It’s about joining a community of people who share a common love for the vibrant downtown lifestyle right at their doorstep — from restaurants, bars and shopping to the arts and theater scene.

For one more month, you can join the Lancaster Press Building community and enjoy significant savings, too. And with two more units under agreement in the last two weeks, there’s no time to waste.

Sign a contract between now and June 30 and receive a $15,000 incentive that can be customized for each homeowner. Use it to eliminate closing costs, decrease yearly tax payments, reduce monthly mortgage payments through an interest buy down, or receive $15,000 off the sales price. The incentive can also be used to purchase upgraded finishes, appliances and many other customizable features within your unit.

With the official start of summer now upon us, there is no better time to take advantage of the savings and experience all that the Lancaster Press Building has to offer, whether you have an active family, an empty nest or a desire to own a maintenance-free second home.

The revitalized former cigar factory and print company at the corner of Prince and Lemon streets blends modern amenities with the character of the building’s history. The condos include industrial chic design features, such as exposed brick walls, cement columns and original oversized windows that offer panoramic views of the city.

Drogaris Companies, developer of the Lancaster Press Building, has made such creative repurposing of the city’s historic buildings a hallmark of its 45 years in business — mindfully preserving the past while creating commercial and residential spaces that not only meet contemporary standards, but are also adaptable to future needs.

All Press Building units offer open kitchen and living areas perfect for entertaining or simply enjoying family time. Floor plans with two bedrooms, two baths and a study are available, making it easy to host extended family and out-of-town guests. Pets are welcome, too.

For those who are downsizing, the Press Building offers the perfect option for maintenance-free living. With no worries about shoveling or lawn care, you can simply lock your door and go, whether you want to enjoy the downtown amenities or travel farther afield.

Fully customizable units are also available to prepare for future needs, such as aging in place. And low monthly condo fees are perfect for life transitions and fixed incomes.

Residents enjoy a secure building with elevator access, as well as secure, dedicated street-level garage parking. Of course, part of the beauty of Press Building living is that you don’t really need a car. Everything you need, from grocery stores and drugstores to entertainment, is all within easy walking distance.

Plus the Press Building itself offers plenty of amenities, including a fitness room, a first-floor restaurant, lockable storage cages and balconies on select units.

For the summer months, there’s no better spot than the rooftop deck. Accessible by elevator, it adds over 1,300 square feet of community space — with bar-top tables, patio tables, lounge chairs and couches to accommodate a gathering of friends, as well as an escape to a private oasis.

The deck offers a panoramic view of the city and the perfect vantage point for viewing fireworks on the Fourth of July or after a Lancaster Barnstormers baseball game.

A gas grill is available for rooftop cookouts, and a gas fireplace and strings of bubble lights ensure that residents can enjoy the space long after the sun sets and the evenings turn cooler. Custom corten steel planters and a striking green wall featuring Virginia creeper make the space even more inviting.

The Press Building has a limited number of both move-in ready units and customizable units available. Standard features in all units include hardwood floors, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.

Prices start in the mid-$200s.

The sales model is open from 1 to 3 p.m. Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, including Memorial Day Weekend, and from 4 to 7 p.m. every Friday, including First Fridays.
