The View at Mackenzi YORK, PA 01/01/2022

Larken Associates announces it has begun a capital improvement plan at The View at Mackenzi, a 224-unit apartment community located at 2035 Patriot Street in York, Pa. The upgrades will add a community pool, outdoor BBQ and new clubhouse to the York County residential community once completed in early 2022.  

Acquired by Larken Associates in 2020, The View at Mackenzi is a key piece of the real estate firm’s rapidly growing York County residential portfolio. Located less than ten miles from downtown York and less than fifteen miles from downtown Hanover, The View at Mackenzi provides residents with a modern living experience nestled into the bucolic Pennsylvania countryside.

Made up of two-bedroom, garden-style apartments for rent, every unit features an in-home washer and dryer, oak cabinetry, central air conditioning and a built-in microwave. Select apartments also feature eat-in kitchens with breakfast bars, hardwood flooring, patios and balconies, and stainless-steel appliances. Already boasting a fitness center, walking and biking trails, a package concierge and an on-site bark park for residents to play with their dogs, Larken Associates’ new capital improvement plan will create additional in-demand amenities for The View at Mackenzi’s residents to enjoy.  

Currently, Larken Associates has nearly 500 units under management in York County alone. Located just ten miles from The View at Mackenzi, Larken’s Copper Chase property features two in-demand luxury residential communities. Acquired in 2019, The Reserve at Copper Chase spans 132 units at 3145 Honey Run Drive in York, Pa. With the goal of enhancing the Copper Chase property, Larken Associates will be completing construction of The Oaks at Copper Chase, a 107-unit multifamily community next door to The Reserve, in October of this year. In addition, Larken Associates made substantial improvements to the community’s shared amenities including the refurbishment of an existing pool and outdoor lounge area and the addition of a state-of-the-art gym and a new clubhouse. 

“Our residential development and management philosophy is built around ensuring that all of our properties are among the finest in their respective markets,” said Jessica Heckman, Director of Residential Asset Management, Larken Associates. “This capital improvement plan at the View at Mackenzi and our work at Copper Chase not only provides an unmatched residential experience for our current community members, but also ensures each of these properties are well-positioned for continued strong demand in one of Pennsylvania’s fastest-growing areas.”
