There are many important factors in choosing the right builder for your commercial or residential construction project. Word-of-mouth recommendations and formal references are often used to identify a suitable builder for your project. While choosing the right builder may take some time, it is a crucial step to assuring satisfaction with the finished project.
One such builder interested in assisting with your commercial or custom residential construction needs is Westwind Construction. Westwind has recently returned to its roots with the development of Ridge45 and Trailside45, two new multi-family apartment communities in the Grand Traverse region.
For forty years, Westwind has served customers across Michigan and throughout the Midwest with their construction and design needs. Their extensive knowledge in the markets they serve gives them unique leverage to create ideal living and working spaces that are value-engineered and designed to meet customer needs.
Family owned. Family built.
These important residential developments in the Grand Traverse region are highly personal to Westwind’s senior team members. Greg Oleszczuk, the president and founder of Westwind, met his wife Jeanine Taghon-Oleszczuk in the Grand Traverse area. Jeanine was born and raised in Empire. In the years since, both Greg and Jeanine’s children have had hands-on experience at Westwind, making it a true family operation. Their son Peter presently serves as Vice President of Construction. Though headquartered in the Grand Haven area, as a family, they are excited to use their talents and resources where it all started. To accommodate expanded business activity in the Grand Traverse region, Westwind has opened a satellite office in Traverse City at 808 S. Garfield Ave., Suite A, local phone number: 231-778-4545.
New multi-family apartment communities are underway
The Grand Traverse community has a startling shortage of budget-conscious housing. This housing challenge has impacted the available workforce in the area as well, with many people unable to find a place to live and, therefore, choosing not to work in Traverse City. Both Ridge45 and Trailside45, two new multi-family communities totaling in 306 family living units, are under construction to fill that need
“Westwind will be more than just a construction firm in the region; our goal is to become part of the greater Grand Traverse civic and social community fabric for the long term,” said Peter Oleszczuk.
Ridge45 is located at 2301 LaFranier Rd, Traverse City MI 49686; it spans 21 acres and will feature 232 living units, as well as unique and attractive community amenities, such as an outdoor heated swimming pool, a walking nature trail, children’s playground, fenced dog park, 24/7 fitness center, and much more. The first residential units at Ridge45 will be move-in ready later this month
Located at Boyd and Garfield, Trailside45 takes up 1.7 acres of long-time vacant land in the heart of Traverse City. The development will have 74 residential units and will feature modern amenities consistent with urban living, offering a welcoming community environment for young professionals and others in the community in need of budget-conscious housing.
Trailside45 was named in recognition of its location adjacent to the Traverse Area Recreation Trail, making it convenient for residents of the new development to bike or walk to the downtown and business district. Residents using the trail will avoid the growing traffic congestion at peak periods and easily enjoy the many amenities available in the surrounding area. Trailside45 will welcome its first residents in 2018. For additional information about the development of Ridge45 and Trailside45, contact: www.ridge45.com
