Northwest Corner of Queen Street Flats (N. Prince and W. Frederick Streets)

Groundbreaking Ceremony
of Queen Street Flats

Representatives from Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health, the Hankin Group, and community stakeholders gathered in early August 2022 for the groundbreaking of Queen Street Flats, located on the former YMCA site along N. Queen, W. Frederick, and N. Prince Streets. This massive project will include the creation of 244 market-rate apartment units within a 4 and 5-story structure, ground-floor retail, a new medical building leased by Penn Medicine, and a multi-story parking structure. The site developer, Hankin Group, will also be renovating and repurposing the existing 150-year-old tavern building and adjoining carriage house located at the northwest corner of the site. Queen Street Flats will be adding significant housing density to a strategic area of the City within walking distance of the train stations and the downtown core.
