Redevelopment Authority Takes on Projects across the County

The Redevelopment Authority of the County of York (RACY) was formed in 1964 by the York County Commissioners as a vehicle specifically aimed to redevelop blighted industrial sites and to forge innovative strategies for redevelopment throughout York County. In the past, RACY has undertaken a number of projects across the County including the former Pillowtex site, the Hanover Shoe sites in Hanover and Smurfit-Stone property in conjunction with York College.
The latest project undertaken by RACY is the former Keystone Weaving Mills site in West York Borough. In 2010, RACY entered into a redevelopment agreement with the York County Planning Commission and the site developer to transform the former Keystone Weaving Mills site into the Carriage Works Apartments.
Carriage Works Apartments is a mixed income rental community that will begin renting this summer and give new life to the underutilized area. Originally built in 1890’s, the converted building offers loft style living with green energy features throughout.
