If the city is your happy place, we’d like to make some introductions. Say hello to Mosaic. A high-rise, 55+ residential hub in the heart of downtown Lancaster. Where 1700s charm meets 2020s buzz. And senior living takes a sweet turn for the urban.

Welcome to Mosaic,
your new, all-in-one-place place

Travel the culinary globe, just across the street at the revitalized Southern Market food hall. Grab some farm-fresh basil at historic Central Market. Walk to concerts, plays, galleries, and baseball games. Or not. Because Mosaic creates its very own adventures du jour. With things to do, from swimming to spa treatments, and art classes to wine tastings. New friends to meet (including furry ones at the dog park). And an entire first floor of gathering places — like a plaza, shops and eateries that bring that city vibe to your literal doorstep.

Here’s what else you’ll find at Mosaic: peace of mind, knowing that you’ve made a financially smart decision. Not only does Mosaic provide you with deeply enriched independent living, but Willow Valley Communities’ innovative Lifecare program. A seamless continuum of care, should you ever need it, with no increase to your monthly service fee. Opening our doors Fall 2025.

DOWNTOWN LANCASTER CITY

Something old, something new

“A hive of culinary diversity,” is how The New York Times describes Lancaster, “a boomlet of upscale bars, breweries, restaurants and art galleries.” The world is taking notice of Lancaster’s rebirth, its spirit of excitement and entrepreneurship. And how this Colonial-era city is becoming home to a new diversity of city lovers, from millennials to empty nesters, eager to live in the middle of it all. Lancaster’s walkable, four-square-mile downtown core isn’t just red-brick picturesque, but pulsing with 300+ places to eat, drink, shop and take in all kinds of culture and entertainment. And Mosaic lies at the heart of it all, at the intersection of Queen and Vine. An ever-fresh wellspring of experiences, culture, and connections.

FOOD HALL & COMMUNITY HUB

Cross the street to Southern Market

Think of it as an extension of your kitchen. Maybe your living room and office too. Built as a farmers market in 1888, Southern Market will once again bring people together over fresh food — and much more. Its centerpiece will be 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, or grab some merlot to go at the wine shop. Buckle down on a project in a co-working space. Or host an event in one of the community rooms.
