A new 280-unit apartment complex behind the Walmart in Crystal Lake is on track to start pre-leasing this year. Called the Springs at Three Oaks, the apartment complex at 1131 Central Park Drive features a clubhouse with a pool, workout facilities, two dog parks, outdoor grills, a fire pit, community gathering area, and parcel lockers. City staff projects the first apartment building will be completed this spring, said the city’s assistant city planner, Kathryn Cowlin.
“It’ll be a nice little development back there,” Cowlin said.
Continental Properties, a real estate developer based in Wisconsin, broke ground right before the ground froze in fall and the project has been constructed over the winter season. The entire development should be completed by next year, Cowlin said. “Right now, they’re still working on the clubhouse,” Cowlin said. “That’s the first building that you see when you pull into the property, and they’re currently working on one of the residential buildings.”
