The Lititz lifestyle

By ,

Construction is just beginning on the first phase of development, but Delaware County-based Traditions of America is already pushing new sites at its 55-plus community in Warwick Township.

Location appears to be the biggest driving factor for the community, which sits just a few minutes from downtown Lititz.

The development is adjacent to Heart of Lancaster Regional Medical Center with views of Bachman Run. It also will feature walking-trail access to The Shoppes at Kissel Hill.

More than 70 homes have been sold, said Nathan Jameson, director of operations and a partner. There were about 80 sites in the initial offering.

Another 23 have been added to keep up with demand. The 244-home planned community sits on 60 acres and offers nine models that range in price from the mid-$200,000s to the low $300,000s.

"We were running out of selections, particularly the single-family homes," Jameson said.

Traditions of America has slated September as the move-in target for some of the early buyers.

I continue to be impressed at how quickly these maintenance-free living communities sell in the midstate. Presale of the Lititz neighborhood only kicked off in the fall.

Traditions of America has eight 55-plus communities in the state. Given the demand, I wouldn't be surprised to see a few more pop up in the next few years.

And they are not the only game in town. Other builders also have noted strong demand in 55-plus.

I guess it doesn't hurt that our population in Central Pennsylvania is getting older.
