Landis Quality Living (LQL) is a 501(c)3, formed as a Landis Communities entity to lead the expansion of affordable and middle-market housing. Even though LQL is a tax-exempt organization, appropriate school, city, and county taxes will still be paid. The mission of LQL is to provide housing with services for adults to age in place and thrive in the community and its vision is Enriching Lives. Apartment communities, such as Landis Place on King, are one way we are working to meet the needs of persons with low and middle income.
At Landis Communities, we continue to grow our established reputation for excellence in serving aging adults. The name Landis has value—the history, the legacy, the excellent reputation. We are guided by our values of joy, compassion, integrity, stewardship and community, while staying faithful to the heritage established by our past leaders and are prepared to continue this legacy with each generation. Landis Communities is one organization with three distinct parts: continuing care retirement communities, home and community-based services, and affordable, low-income, and middle-income independent living options.
At Landis Place on King, a community is being created offering more than a place to live; it also provides a place to belong. By bringing together individuals from various backgrounds and a wide range of incomes, the residents are enhancing the diversity of the neighborhood and contributing to the ongoing revitalization of West King Street.
From the onset of the project, dialogue with community leaders and potential residents helped to develop strategies to foster a sense of belonging and prevent displacement. For this reason, Landis Place on King materials are accessible in both English and Spanish.
Through this investment in Lancaster City, Landis Quality Living is able to be a catalyst in this forward movement.

The design for Landis Place on King located all but a few balconies on the sides and back of the building. Only four two-bedroom apartments on levels 3 to 6 have windows facing south (King Street). If you have an apartment facing south, you will have the warm southern light exposure and the view will be wonderful! Any general King Street noise will be further reduced by the distance to the upper levels as well as by four trees that will also provide shade. The building is well insulated for energy efficiency which also helps with sound transmission. Eighty-five percent of window area is fixed insulated glass that improves energy efficiency and reduces sound intrusion. Fifteen percent is operable as a way to bring in outside air as desired.
The ceilings are 9′ 0″.
