Greenfield: A Center for Community
Community-centric organizations and individuals are increasingly and positively impacting the world where we live, work, learn and play. In Lancaster County, this statement couldn’t be any truer. Greenfield, formerly known as the Greenfield Corporate Center, recently underwent an organizational rebrand and refresh that not only includes an updated logo but an updated calling and purpose. With established pillars focused on health & wellness, the environment, community, and education, the new Greenfield is excited to grow alongside Lancaster County.
Situated just east of Lancaster city, Greenfield has been the home for a number of residential and commercial tenants for the past half-century. “Greenfield is more than just an assemblage of buildings,” said Mark Fitzgerald, President and Chief Operating Officer, High Real Estate Group LLC and High Associates, Ltd., “It’s a community of diverse organizations and individuals thriving in an environment where they can reach their fullest potential.”
With a new calling and purpose, Greenfield has welcomed even more members into their family. Of the new arrivals, Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology recently announced a new 86,000-square-foot facility and Armstrong Flooring has committed to calling Greenfield the new home of their corporate headquarters. In addition, 92 free-standing homes and 300 apartments are scheduled for construction over the next few years; expanding Greenfield’s residential scope.
In their recent rebrand and refresh, Greenfield has developed community-oriented programs to appeal to their industrial tenants, residential tenants, academic students, guests of their two hotel properties, and the larger Lancaster community. Additionally, Greenfield is working to expand their 1.5-mile trail system to 3 miles of walking and biking trails over the next two years. These trails combined with a complimentary coffee cart, yoga in the park, and food trucks all hope to cultivate a more enjoyable community where Lancastrians live, work, learn, and play.
