Site work for Lancaster city’s biggest privately developed apartment building in decades could start next month, according to a project official.

The four-story, 104-unit Stadium Row building is being developed by Mechanicsburg-based Strong & Detweiler Partnership.

It is to go behind WellSpan Philhaven’s building in the 800 block of North Prince Street, just north of Clipper Magazine Stadium.

There, the 97,000-square-foot building and its landscaping would reclaim a brownfield property that at present is home to a cluster of storage sheds.

In November, the project received conditional final approval from the city Planning Commission. The project team is working through the conditions this month so it can file a final plan and obtain permits, said Jim Shultz, the project development manager.

That would allow work to start sometime in January, he said.

The project timeline calls for occupancy by mid-2021. Strong & Detweiler hasn’t disclosed a cost; industry experts told LNP such buildings typically cost well over $10 million.
