Gatherings your way

Introducing the simple pleasures of a day at home. Simple, as in easy access to activities you love. But hard, perhaps, in choosing which to do first. Gather with friends in elegant spaces for movie screenings. Billiards and other games. Concerts and lectures in the ballroom. Book clubs at the club lounge. Or wrapping up home office details at our business center.

Wellness comes naturally

Breathe in, breathe out. We all thrive with regular doses of fresh air and natural beauty. Mosaic embraces outdoor living with a lush urban oasis. And lovely mini-getaways in our community garden and dog park. Movement can be a part of every day too, at the pool and fitness center. So can a little pampering, with stone massages and manicures at the spa and salon.

Hello, neighbors

To walk this city is to love it. Established in 1730, Central Market is your Saturday morning go-to for farm-fresh produce, meat and cheese. Locals gather at Penn Square too, for fireworks and jazz concerts. And you won’t want to miss First Friday special exhibitions and performances at our nationally recognized arts center, Gallery Row. With so many great destinations to choose from, you’ll want to keep some comfortable shoes by your front door.

Live here, go there
(and everywhere)

From Mosaic, the East Coast’s marquee cities are easily driveable. Their international airports are too, so really, the world is yours. Closer-to-home getaways include the Pocono and Catskill Mountains. The beaches of Ocean City and Cape May. And of course, our very own Lancaster County — the heart of Amish country, where rural roads invite tranquil exploration.

LANCASTER CITY LIVING

Where 1700s charm meets 2020s buzz

Life in the heart of Lancaster City is far more than red-brick picturesque. Just across the street, the revitalized Southern Market food hall is a daily celebration of emerging and established chefs. Walk five minutes and you can explore Central Market, the nation’s longest-running farmers market. And a theater, performing arts centers and museums. With 300+ places to eat, drink, shop and be entertained — all within four square miles — Lancaster City lives up to its title as a “Top 5 Coolest City” by Forbes.

FOOD HALL & COMMUNITY HUB

Cross the street to Southern Market

Think of it as an extension of your dining room. Maybe your living room and office too. Built as a farmers market in 1888, Southern Market once again brings people together over fresh food — and much more. Its centerpiece is a world-class food hall that celebrates emerging and established chefs, and Lancaster’s heritage of culinary diversity. Not hungry? Sip something wonderful at the coffee shop or Bar 1888. Buckle down on a project in a co-working space. Or host an event or hold a meeting in one of the community rooms.
