Luxury apartments under construction in York Township

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – A new luxury apartment complex is going up in York Township.

Construction started this week for the complex along South George Street, just off the Leader Heights exit of Interstate 83. The 22-acre property, once a trailer park, will soon be home to a three-story, nine-building complex with 224 luxury apartments.

Burkentine Builders has already started pre-leasing.

“Not always is construction in the eyes of the community great, but this is a project that everyone in this area recognizes is very needed,” co-owner Bryce Burkentine said.

The biggest pull for potential buyers is the close proximity to I-83, but the developers say it’s also ideal for seniors looking for smaller, maintenance-free living.. For Veterans Day, they’re offering a $600 discount on the first month’s rent for veterans.

The apartments should be completed by July 2019.
