3 move-in ready options available in Manheim Township neighborhood
Worthington at Township Square is a smart-growth community that promotes the three R’s: residential, retail and recreation.
The Keystone Custom Homes neighborhood straddling Oregon Pike in Manheim Township offers a mix of residential and retail space, creating a walkable community where shopping and dining opportunities are just a few steps from your front door.
And since one third of Worthington’s 86 acres is open and natural space, there are plenty of opportunities for recreation, whether it’s fountains and grilling areas, parks with gazebos, or walking and biking trails that connect to the 70-acre Landis Woods, home to a nature center, performing arts center and the Boettcher House Museum, as well as Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum and the Hands on House Children’s Museum.
Homes in the second part of phase 1, on the east side of Oregon Pike, face a manicured open park space with gazebo and back up to open space. This section of Worthington will have a walking trail that connects to nearby Nitrauer Elementary School.
Worthington is conveniently located between downtown Lancaster and Lititz, and offers easy access to routes 30, 283 and 222.
When complete, Worthington will include a total of 259 homes — single-family, carriage homes and townhomes — along with the Lofts at Worthington, one- and two-bedroom apartments over 43,000 square feet of first-floor retail/commercial space on the west side of the community.
Those shops currently include the fine dining Mediterranean restaurant Gibraltar, Salt & Pepper Italian bistro, Sofrito Latin restaurant, Fulton Bank, Subway, a nail salon and art studio.
Construction on the fifth and final commercial building in the community is currently underway. That building will feature 37 luxury loft apartments over commercial space that will include Eye Doctors of Lancaster, SOLA Salons and Infinity Health Advisors.
