Seeing a demand for downtown living, a Delaware County developer wants to construct a 16-story apartment building on a parking lot at North Queen and West Chestnut streets.

Berger Rental Communities intends to develop 168 market-rate apartments in a 198-foot-high structure, which would be the third tallest in center-city, trailing only the Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square and the Griest Building, both roughly 210 feet.

I am not too thrilled with a vehicle entrance on W. Chestnut Street and a pedestrian bridge over North Queen Street. The pedestrian bridge seems unnecessary. Lancaster is not Minneapolis during the winter and all this bridge will do is draw pedestrian traffic up off the street. I would also like to see more than 900 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Hopefully, the design will be tweaked a little more.

Overall this is a great project. Hopefully, the project team can get a zoning variance and other city approvals while securing financing.
