Fast-food chain Shake Shack will open its first store in central Pennsylvania late this year.

The announcement was made in a release by High Real Estate Group LLC, the developer of The Crossings at Conestoga Creek, a $120 million mixed-use development in Manheim Township, Lancaster County, where Shake Shack will be located.

The Crossings features 90,000 square feet of retail (Main Street component); 258 upscale apartments; and a Residence Inn by Marriott.

Other tenants include Wegmans, Reel Cinemas, Miller’s Ale House, MassageLuXe Spas, Starbucks, Andonia’s Chophouse and Pure Barre.

The Lancaster Shake Shack, at 1100 Christopher Place, Building G, will feature an indoor dining room, approximately 700 square feet of outside space and a drive-thru window.

As of the fourth quarter of 2021, Shake Shack had 369 stores in 15 countries, according to a report posted on the company’s website.

Pizzeria Luca, a casual, pizza-focused extension of Luca, a popular restaurant on West James Street in Lancaster, also will open at The Crossings late in 2022, occupying a 3,500-square-foot space.

Restaurateurs Taylor and Leeann Mason said in the release that Pizzeria Luca “celebrates all things pizza – the culture, the fun, and the deliciousness you have to come to expect from us.”

Powell Arms, senior vice president – retail division for High Real Estate Group, added: “We’re thrilled to have these new tenants joining The Crossings at Conestoga Creek. Each retailer fills one of the key features of the shopping, dining, fitness and personal service experiences of The Crossings. These restaurants will offer high quality food and beverage experiences, making them a perfect fit with our vision.”
