Interior Design of The First Post

The First Post is now open for business in the heart of Springettsbury Township in York. Housed in a historic building that dates back to the 1800’s, The First Post is serving American cuisine to coincide with the early 1900’s pub atmosphere felt throughout the restaurant. At full capacity, The First Post can seat up to 270 people in it’s 12,000 square feet. New renovations include decorative tin ceilings and custom wall panels made from repurposed church pews as well as portions of the back bar that come from a Pittsburgh tavern dating back to the 1800’s. Along with these new renovations, patrons can enjoy the preserved rooms from the original roadhouse. We are so excited to have been apart of the expansion and renovation of this historic project.

Grand Opening of The First Post

The First Post sign.Last night was the much anticipated grand opening of the newly renovated restaurant, The First Post, located in the heart of Springettsbury Township in York. As a historical landmark and an important part of local history, we were excited to have played an integral role in helping a local family bring this vision to life.

As part of the renovation process, we designed the exterior to reflect the historic nature of a timeless village street scape, which was created by adding additions to the sides of the original structure. By designing each addition to feel like it’s own unique structure we were able to provide patrons and local residents with a beautiful setting that feels like it has always been here.Front of The First Post

Additional renovations included a wrap around porch that evokes memories of the days where people would gather in friendship and talk about local news. The rear of the building was expanded to open up the interior and allow more space for dining.

Dating back to the 1800’s, the name “The First Post” comes from adventurous travelers roaming down Lincoln Highway and stopping at this location to grab a hot meal or cold drink to help keep their spirits high and their energy up before entering York. We were delighted to help breathe new life into this important landmark. Keep a look out for additional posts and pictures centered around the interior renovations next week!

ODCC Photo Release

Check out this fantastic professional photography of the Out Door Country Club in York which helps to showcase its recent expansion. The grand opening of this new patio area, which seats 83 people, was held on June 19th. Fittingly, the area backs up to the 19th hole of the golf course, now re-named “Bistro on the Green.” The bistro has a specialty pizza oven, which can cook up artisan pizzas for guests in just 3 minutes. It was designed for members and their families, as a place to relax, unwind, and enjoy each other. Check back with our blog for additional photos in the near future.

A fresh peek at ABC Keystone

In April, SAAarchitects celebrated the grand opening of the Keystone Chapter of Associated Builders’ expansion in Mannheim, PA. This project provides an incredibly valuable new apprentice training and education center which is 3 times the size of the previous building.

We recently received some great professional shots of the building and wanted to share them with you! The photo captured here shows the building’s new exterior, with additional square footage, expected to almost double student enrollment within the next few years.

ABC Keystone represents over 600 construction-related firms locally and is also part of a national association with 72 chapters representing more than 19,000 merit shop construction and construction-related firms. Their members are involved in commercial, industrial, and institutional free enterprise construction throughout south-central PA. We wish them all the best with this incredible, community-focused project!ABC 0002
