One of the reasons we chose to build Commonwealth in its extraordinary, central location is because we knew it would give our residents’ ultimate walkability to everything they need and want. Shopping, dining, entertainment, parks and recreational facilities are all a short walk, bike ride or even shorter drive away.

When our residents need to shop for themselves, their families or for gifts and special occasions, they don’t have to go far from home. We pride ourselves on being a quick and hassle-free drive from seriously everything good you need to stock your home. From groceries and beauty supplies to clothing retailers, shoe stores, premium outlets and home furnishing stores, it’s easy to get your retail therapy on right when you need it when you live at Commonwealth at York.

We recommend that you head out and explore your new neighborhood as soon as you move in to find your new favorite coffee shops, nail salons and grocery stores. When you want to get some serious shopping on, you won’t have to do much searching. You can visit any one of these nearby shopping centers and find exactly what you’re looking for in no time. Welcome home, and happy shopping!
