George Washington Inn to Become Apartment Complex

YORK-The George Washington Inn & Conference Center on Merrimac Trail near CVS Pharmacy will soon be converted into an apartment complex.

York County Board of Supervisors approved an application from Schottenstein Realty Company to rezone the area in order to turn the inn and conference center into a residential community with 125 workforce housing units.

As part of the plan, several buildings on the property will be demolished including the inn’s restaurant and the conference center building. Recreational amenities for the new affordable housing complex will include an outdoor pool, a biergarten, a dog park, an exercise room, a business center, and a great room or lounge.

Renters will be able to choose from three options: a studio apartment, a one-bedroom apartment, or a two-bedroom apartment. All apartments would have remote-controlled thermostats and include utilities.

The George Washington Inn & Conference Center, which is still in operation, has been in a state of decline for years. In 2012, an approval to turn the inn into a senior center fell through.

York County hopes that attracting year-round residents to the area of Merrimac Trail and Second Street now known as The Edge District will lead to more clientele for the slew of restaurants and drinking establishments that have popped up there in recent years.
