West End Market renovations to add space for restaurant, bike shop and studios | What’s in store

Renovation plans for the West End Market in the city of Lancaster include the creation of new spaces for a restaurant and bike shop, as well as a rental studio and rehearsal space.

The former Huber’s West End Market building at 501 W. Lemon St. was purchased in April by yoga instructor Tracey Davis and Adam Davis, an executive at Tait, a Lititz-based live event organization.

City of Lancaster zoning officials recently approved renovation plans for the 10,000 square foot property, which the Davises bought for $1.01 million from Glenn and Dee Huber, whose family opened the deal in 1960.

The renovation will create space for The Horse Inn owners, Starla and Matthew Russels, to expand food and drink options at the market. Restaurant and bar seating will be added, as well as a sandwich counter. Take-out service for beer and wine is also planned, according to a zoning application filed with the City of Lancaster.

A rear warehouse space will be renovated for Hush Money Bikes, which will move from 237 N. Prince St., where it opened in April 2020. Chris Caldwell, one of Hush Money’s owners, said the store full-service bicycle company outgrows its current space and will be able to offer more products in the new spot, where they can also benefit from a better working environment.

The space on the second floor of the market will become The Second Story Studio, which will have studio space for rent for art, dance and yoga teachers. There will also be rooms for rent for massages, weight training and counseling. A green space at the back will be converted into a playground.

Tracey Davis said they hope to complete the work next summer. She declined to estimate the cost.
