Luxury Senior Living Changing the Skyline of Lancaster City

The Lancaster city skyline is changing. All in an effort to make the city more friendly for retirees.

U.S. News and World Report named Lancaster the best place to retire.

So Willow Valley Communities is setting up shop where the over 55 community says they want to be – the heart of downtown.

β€œLancaster is having its moment,” said chief marketing officer at Willow Valley Communities Brian Rutter.

People from 39 states across the country have made Lancaster home at Willow Valley. Rutter says it has to do with a relatively mild climate that still gets all four seasons, proximity to other big cities, affordability of the area and a vibrant arts, culture and food scene. Now, over 1,000 people from 32 states have showed interest in moving to a new apartment complex in Lancaster – the Mosaic.
