High-end condos coming to York

More high-end condominiums are coming to downtown York courtesy of a
Gettysburg-based developer, York officials said today.

Vishaal Kansagra of Kansagra Real Estate Group, plans to transform the former Pfaltzgraff
Design building at 30 S. Howard
St.
into 13 loft condominiums.

The building, which has been vacant about one-and-a-half
years, is located behind the York Water Co. headquarters.

“I was attracted to York
rather than to any (one) property,” Kansagra said today.  “It’s the potential that York has for development, for improvement.”

The units will retail from the low $200,000s and will
include a roof-top common area.  Kansagra
said residents could move into 30 SoHo, as he
has named the project, as early as March.

“This continues the development of new housing options in
the City of York,
and we’re excited the project is moving forward,” York Mayor John Brenner said.

Among these options are Codo, the residential projects by
developer Ryan McKinley and the $53 million brownfield housing development in
the Northwest Triangle.

By concentrating residential projects, amenities, cultural and
recreational attractions, York planners are
hoping to lure young professionals, empty nesters and Baltimore commuters to settle downtown.

Brenner said having improved housing stock is “critical” if
the city is to complement this growth and attract the kind of retailers it has
been pursuing, such as a book store and a high-end grocery store.

“This project is unique because it’s in a building not
currently being used for housing, and it’s within walking distance of the
downtown,” Brenner said.

Kevin Schreiber, Marketing & Economic Development
Coordinator for York,
noted another thing that sets the new condominiums apart is that they are
entirely privately funded, versus several other ventures that are
public-private partnerships.

And that’s a promising indicator for York’s economic development in Schreiber’s
eyes.

“(Kansagra) is from out of town, saw the potential and
stepped in,” he said. “He saw the marketability.”
