Sustainable York, Pa.: 6 city views of inside space, at street level and from high above
A recent redevelopment tour of York, Pa., centered around sustainable construction throughout the city’s downtown. State Rep. Kevin Schreiber led the U.S. Green Building Council’s Central Pennsylvania chapter tour. Here, the tour begins in LSC Design’s 320 North George Street building. This structure, known for years as the Thomas Somerville building, was built in 1920 and served as a warehouse for the P.A. & S. Small Company. Also of interest: And here’s another tour from the past: ArtSpace.
The fact is that renewal in York City is not always obvious.
Sometimes, the buildings are formidable on the outside but the inside space is alluring.
And sometimes you have to go above and look across the city to understand all that’s going on below.
So here are 5 more views from the recent green tour … .
The group visits Martin Library’s tall atrium.
About 40 people walked the tour’s 1.5 miles. Here, the tour stops in Think Loud Development’s York Street building (remember Bi-Comp?) and views the rock band Live’s performing/recording studio.
At street level … .
Think Loud Development’s York Street rooftop patio provides a view of Santander Stadium, home of the Atlantic League’s York Revolution. That the smokestack of the former Pensupreme dairy in the background, north of the Codorus Creek. And the armory is across George Street from the old dairy, top center.
