Lancaster’s Lemon Street Expands Downtown To The North With Stores, Markets And Apartments

Editor’s note:  Lancaster is leading the way as a highly walkable urban community.  Continued development to bring people and businesses downtown is paying big dividends.
 
Fifteen years ago, real estate developer Ed Drogaris sought to breathe life into a mostly moribund block on North Prince Street.
 
His Prince Street Center project eventually redeveloped two vacant tobacco warehouses and a former car dealership.
 
They became 130,000 square feet of residential, commercial, retail and restaurant space.
 
In recent years, his efforts have shifted to the corner of the block.
