A partnership based in Mechanicsburg is proposing to build 104 upscale apartments next to Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster city.

The project, named Stadium Row, would be the first substantial apartment building for the general public to be constructed from the ground up in the city since 1963, a project official said.

To be built behind WellSpan Philhaven’s mental health facility at 812 N. Prince St., Stadium Row would bring a better use to land that’s now home to five storage sheds, said Jim Shultz, the project’s development manager.

“I consider this classic private redevelopment,” he said Wednesday.

That’s because the venture would add value to the property, causing it to generate more property-tax revenue, and would move the city a bit closer to its goal of adding 2,500 housing units by 2030, Shultz explained.

The project would be developed by Strong & Detweiler Partnership, which Shultz described as a family partnership that has ties to Lancaster. He declined to elaborate.
