In 2018, Pre/3 purchased the western half of the “Fonk property,” a 44-acre parcel located in the southeast corner of Union Grove. This residential development will consist of 63 single-family homes and 120 multi-family units (10 buildings with 12 units each).
Homes range in size from 1, 875 to 2,229 square feet and offer both two- and three-car garage options. Three distinctive exterior architectural styles, six unique interior home plans, and a collection of upscale finishes comprise this beautifully landscaped neighborhood.
Early phases of construction began on the Village of Waterford’s first new multifamily development in about 20 years.
The 84-unit, $8.4 million market-rate luxury apartment complex broke ground in 2019. Developer, PRE/3 Real Estate proposed constructing eight buildings south of Kramer Road between Highway 164 (Big Bend Road) and the Seven Waters Recreation Trail.
The transformation of dilapidated property into lakefront homes is closer to fruition after an agreement was reached between the village and developer CCM-Caledonia LLC.
The $60 million development is expected to include three six-story condominiums along the lakefront. Additionally, condominium townhomes are to be constructed east of Erie Street. The development will be known as Waters Edge Place.
