101NQ enhances growth, development downtown

State-of-the-art mixed-use project on track to open in 2019

Demolition work has begun for the highly anticipated 101 North Queen construction project in Lancaster, opening in 2019. Located at the corner of Queen and Orange streets, 101NQ will feature 150,000 square feet of mixed-use real estate, including high-end retail, state-of-the-art office spaces and luxury residences.
Cargas Systems, a local employee-owned business software company, will be the anchor tenant.
“We are so thrilled to be part of this effort for three reasons: Our community, our employees and our future employees,” says Chip Cargas, owner, founder and CEO. “For our community, it’s gratifying to see a building that’s been vacant for so long be repurposed.”
The Core at 101NQ includes two floors of office space. Available office spaces range from 1,200 to 25,000 square feet with 20-foot ceilings and industrial-style mezzanines.
The first floor of 101NQ, The Row, will encompass 14 state-of-the-art retail spaces ranging from 765 to 5,000 square feet that will include a Starbucks, Mayita’s Boutique and Domaci, a furniture and home decor store.
“We’ve been exploring spots for a secondary location for a while now,” says Warren Clark, Domaci co-founder. “I love how this development is a bridge between the funky shops on North Queen and the Center Square where the market is.”
The Point at 101NQ, located on the fourth floor, will be home to 16 luxury condos that range from 1,800 to 3,800 square feet. Private parking will be located on the ground floor.
Local Realtor Anne Lusk, owner of Lusk and Associates Sotheby’s International Realty, has already had high client interest.
“This is the once-in-a-generation opportunity to be part of the metamorphosis of the new center of Lancaster city,” says Lusk.
Residences will feature bright interiors and luxury finishes, plus expansive windows for city views, and customization offered through local custom builder EGStoltzfus Homes.
The current site had been vacant for almost a decade when Zamagias Properties purchased the property in 2016. The project will bring high-earning employees into the city, job opportunities, and even more amenities for the 50,000 people currently living and working in downtown Lancaster.
Tracy Horst, owner of PPM Real Estate and Progressive Property Management, is the leasing agent for the corporate space. “It’s been a long time coming,” she says. “And I am thrilled to be a part of this building’s rebirth.”
Zamagias Properties owns and manages approximately 2 million square feet of commercial real estate. They have partnered with local stakeholders like PPM Real Estate, LeFevre Funk Architects, EGStoltzfus, Community First Fund, RGS Associates and Warfel Construction, among others.
Dave Martens, president and CFO of Zamagias Properties, believes this project will make a huge impact in Lancaster. “Finally, the process that began in the late 1960s to create a vibrant energized City Center and gathering place is being completed with the redevelopment of 101N.”
