There have been some developments in Lancaster in the past 5-10 years, including a new tallest building, infill near Franklin & Marshall, and tobacco warehouse conversions.

A few developments are going on now:

The Stockyards area is being developed into a low-density office park.

Here's an article from a couple years ago detailing the closure of the stockyards.

Here's some pictures from the area.






The only extant building at the stockyards is the old Stockyard Inn, which is the oldest steakhouse in Lancaster.






East of the former stockyards, the neighborhood still looks industrial.

Big news for Lancaster and Franklin & Marshall College! After years of waiting, Franklin & Marshall will get a new football stadium. Lancaster will redevelop the grass field north of Harrisburg Avenue.


Plans for $16M Franklin & Marshall stadium approved by city Historical Commission


Come the start of the 2017 college football season, the Franklin & Marshall Diplomats expect to take the field in a new $16 million stadium.

The school presented its plan for the stadium Monday to the Lancaster Historical Commission, which approved it.

The stadium will be named for Laurence Shadek, a 1972 graduate and trustee who played football and baseball and is now an investment adviser. His Shadek Family Foundation gave $5 million in 2012 to jump-start fundraising.

College spokesman Kevin Burke said between commitments of more than $10 million, anticipated gifts and institutional funding, the stadium is funded.

Men's and women's lacrosse teams will also use the stadium.

The stadium will be built on a 27-acre tract on the college’s North Campus, across Harrisburg Avenue.

The grassy area was formerly property of Armstrong World Industries.

The red brick stadium with a faux slate roof will be built in the Colonial Revival style to reflect other campus buildings. Its facade will resemble a two-story building atop a mound.

Here's a big development proposed for across the street from Lancaster Brewing Company.


East Walnut Street site eyed for $18M housing, offices, restaurant project


On the east side of Lancaster city, there’s a short, obscure alley named Tobacco Avenue.

Most Lancaster residents who live outside the neighborhood have never heard of the nondescript alley, which takes an L-shaped path a mere 130 yards long between former tobacco warehouses.

But Tobacco Avenue’s low profile is about to get raised dramatically by a project on an adjoining property.

Two prominent local brothers are proposing an approximately $18 million revitalization of the drab southwest corner of North Plum and East Walnut streets.

Patrick and Peter Egan want to bring 76 apartments, offices and a restaurant to the corner, now home to Weinstein Supply, opposite Lancaster Brewing Co.

The Egans’ development — at a major entrance to the city — would take the name of the street that forms most of its western boundary, Tobacco Avenue LLC.
