The Lofts: apartment living in walkable Worthington

Keystone community brings shopping, recreation and more right to your door

Few luxury apartments offer the best of city and suburban living, but that’s exactly what you’ll find at the Lofts at Worthington.
Step out your door and walk to an array of retail shops and restaurants. Or hop the walking trail and explore the beauty of the 70-acre Landis Woods, home to a nature center, performing arts center and the Boettcher House Museum.
Part of the Keystone Custom Homes smart-growth community Worthington at Township Square, off the Oregon Pike between Lititz and Lancaster, the Lofts offers one- and two-bedroom rental options, in traditional and loft style, above first-floor retail/commercial space.
The live/work/play Worthington neighborhood also features single-family homes, townhomes and duplexes on 88 acres, 26 of which are preserved open space.
Pre-leasing is now underway for the third and final phase of the Lofts to be completed this fall, with occupancy scheduled for Dec. 1, according to regional property manager Lorine Kellner.
The final phase includes two floors of apartments — 38 total — over retail/commercial space. Apartments on the second floor are traditional style, while those on the third floor feature cathedral ceilings and loft space.
The first two phases of the Lofts are fully occupied, and 12 apartments in the final phase already have been pre-leased, Kellner says.
Choose from a host of floor plans, from 757 to 1,587 square feet, available in both traditional and loft style. Monthly rent ranges from $909 to $1,980.
“There are a variety of floor plans to choose from, depending on what someone is looking for,” Kellner says.
One-bedroom apartments have one bath. Two bedroom apartments come with two baths, including a master bath. All apartments have gas heat and feature gourmet kitchens with granite countertops and solid wood cabinetry. Washer, dryer and all kitchen appliances are included.
The Lofts offers 24/7 emergency maintenance and secured elevator access. Residents also have access to grill-and-chill outdoor patio areas.
Additionally, the new phase will include a fitness center and internet cafe-type community room, included in the monthly rent, Kellner says.
For a limited time, Keystone is offering free first month’s rent to those who sign a 13-month lease.
Worthington’s newest retail/commercial tenants include the Mediterranean restaurant Gibraltar, Sola Salon Studios, Eye Doctors of Lancaster and the corporate office of Infinity Health.
Worthington is also home to Salt & Pepper Italian Bistro & Pizza, Top Nails, Subway, Art Matters, Fulton Bank and The Rejuvenation Center.
All commercial space in the community is now occupied, Kellner says.
The Lofts at Worthington is located in the Manheim Township School District. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment Saturdays.
