This month, on a farm near Route 501, construction began of an innovative facility named Rock Lititz Studio.

The studio is being built to fill a need in the concert-tour industry for affordable, accessible and available production-rehearsal space.

Costing more than $7 million to develop, according to industry sources, Rock Lititz Studio is set for completion in August.

Rock Lititz Studio will start as a 52,000-square-foot building, or roughly the size of a supermarket, except with  a 100-foot-high roof.
