    Fresh Face: Grant Street Lofts

    If the walls of 228 East Grant Street could talk, they’d weave an interesting history of makers and artists who have created, built, worked and lived out their lives within the historic red brick warehouse. The former tobacco warehouse turned residence, that has earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places, is giving the Eastside something new to talk about as excitement builds in the neighborhood for Grant Street Lofts.


    This passion project of Jen and Dan Steiner, brought together an all-Lancaster creative team in renovating the building to house seven luxury-boutique condominiums designed to reflect the beauty, charm and history of the surrounding neighborhood, while also offering luxury touches, visionary layouts and high-end amenities as the standard.


    Discovering this property, and curating the right team of professionals to bring it to its most glorious state, has been
    a sort of homecoming for Dan Steiner who grew up in Lebanon and graduated from F&M. The evolution of Lancaster City into the vibrant cultural and artistic “City Authentic” is something that Dan and Jen are inspired to contribute to and be a part of through this project. “We wanted to add to the neighborhood and rehabilitate a building that was sitting empty and give it life and energy that matches the city around it.”


    Exposed brick, historic charm, gourmet kitchens, private parking, customizable interior details and a dynamic, walkable city are likely to draw a lot of interest in Grant Street Lofts, but what the Steiners are most excited to offer is a microcosm of community within the Lancaster community. “What we pictured is a community of people who love Lancaster and want to take advantage of what
    a walkable city has to offer living as neighbors.”
