About Us

Efficient Living In the Heart of Lancaster City

 Micro-living is a development concept offering urban suitability. Our goal is to create cool spaces that meets the dynamic needs of the growing downtown Lancaster environment at an affordable price.

The apartments range from 260 to 665 square feet, all of them featuring a full bath and a compact but complete kitchen. High ceilings are essential, as is lots of natural light; every unit has large windows.

Small living quarters have historically gone hand-in-hand with substandard conditions. Enter dwell | 30 N Water St  &  dwell | 144 N Prince St, where clean lines and historical features come together to create a sense of vintage modern style.

The units will be designed and outfitted with custom-made furniture, and may include a knee-high coffee table that opens to become a waist-high dining table or a couch designed to collapse below a stylish Murphy bed. The furniture is part of what we highlight as the building’s “experience”. Also available are the ability to schedule weekly, bi-weekly or monthly cleaning.

The amenities alleviate any concerns about the apartments’ confines — should we really get worked up about a small living space when it comes with all these main amenities included at no additional cost?

  • Business Class WIFI
  • In-unit Washer & Dryer combo unit
  • Utilities: Water, Sewer, Trash, Wi-Fi
  • A full Co-working Membership at the neighboring Warehouse210 allowing use of our restored tobacco warehouse inside and out, plus other unique amenities. This helps to further enhance the sense of community we strive for.

Now’s the Time to Make a Move!

  • The carefully managed, market-friendly optics at dwell | 30 N Water St  &  dwell | 144 N Prince St aren’t geared only toward relatively well-off renters, though. They’re part of a larger strategy by city officials to leverage the trendiness of tiny into a new affordable-housing model.

    Though they have typically been marketed to young, single professionals who want to live in the center of the city. “People from all over the world want to live in Lancaster City, and we must develop a new, scalable housing model that is safe, affordable, and innovative to meet their needs.” 

    The apartments at dwell | 30 N Water St  &  dwell | 144 N Prince St seem, at first glance, to be united by the idea that, in a city where space is limited, proper design intervention can, like magic, create new space.

    In the units, every corner has been designed with much thought and the living spaces do feel larger and airier than their square footage suggests.

    Moreover, despite the design elements and amenities, the units may especially appeal seem students of local colleges and universities, or young singles who work long hours and have the means to eat and socialize outside of their homes, or to professionals with houses outside the city who need a place in town a few nights a week.

    A Murphy bed is a great way to make the most out of your space and we’ve carefully crafted the perfect installation for these units. Carefully measured to maximize function we’ve also prepared installable shelves and TV stands that work in a modular fashion with our other optional features.

Save on Rent

Living in a small space means saving a ton on rent. Micro-units may rent for hundreds less than studio apartments in the same area or neighborhoods.

Less Furniture Means More Savings

The smaller size also means less furniture and decor to buy. It also means less time cleaning up or the need for a regular housekeeping service. But there’s more than just financial savings involved. A micro-unit can also save you tons of time throughout your day.

Live in the Best Location

You will be able to enjoy quick access to work, restaurants, bars, and the best urban amenities Lancaster has to offer.

Ditch the Car

Micro-dwellers might even be able to ditch the car altogether. Instead, residents can rely on nearby public transportation, walking, biking, and ride-sharing to further the cost- and time-saving benefits of living small.

Help the Environment

Environmentally conscious renters also love that most micro-apartments are eco-friendly. They take up less space and resources. There’s also a trickle-down effect when it comes to eco-friendly living. You typically buy less furniture, less decor, and use less electricity to make yourself at home.
