A longtime York City retail location is officially starting its new life with a ribbon-cutting at 5 p.m. Friday.

REVI Flats, the former Weinbrom Jewelers building at the corner of West Market and South Beaver streets, contains six retail locations and eight apartments.

The retail locations include a candy store, hair salon and Issac's on the Fly. The new apartments, four flats and four lofts, feature open floor plans and repurposed railings from the former Zodiac and Big City nightclubs.

The ribbon-cutting marks the completion of the first phase of a building project by RSDC, formerly Royal Square Development Corp., on West Market Street. The two other phases will redevelop the former F.W. Woolworth building, 44-50 W. Market St., which will house 21 apartments and 26 parking spaces, and the former Zakie's nightclub building, 24-27 W. Market St., which will feature seven apartments and the new Fig & Barrel restaurant.

According to Dylan Bauer, development director for RSDC, the $14 million project was made possible through an $8.5 million new markets tax credit and historic tax credits as well as alternate-use funds. An additional new market tax credit will provide 23 more apartments at 337 W. Market St. and 101 E. Market St., with those projects scheduled for 2018.

Several of the REVI Flats apartments are still available for lease, with rent ranging from $750 to $1,450 per month, which includes parking. For more information, visit or call Square Reality at 717-850-4220.
