Class A Apartment Community Under Construction

Jonesboro, Arkansas

BlackRidge Companies, a Missouri and Montana-based company, broke ground this spring on a Class A, 180-unit apartment community and resident clubhouse in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Willow Creek Apartment Homes, a $13 million project, is scheduled to be complete in June of 2011.

“We are excited to be a part of the Jonesboro community and we feel that Willow Creek Apartment Homes will be a great asset to the area,” said Jon Braxton, an owner of BlackRidge Companies. “Our goal is to create a high-quality community for people with active lifestyles. We set the standard for excellence by providing quality living environments, superb amenities, and outstanding customer satisfaction and we feel that Willow Creek will set the benchmark for just that in Jonesboro.”

Located on Caraway Road in Jonesboro, Willow Creek will be an eco-friendly environment and include 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartment homes, ranging in square footage from 650 sq. ft. to 1,200 sq. ft. Each apartment home will include a private patio, private exterior storage closets, a full-size washer and dryer, walk-in closets in each bedroom, beautiful wood cabinetry, fully-equipped kitchens, including a dishwasher and a microwave, ceiling fans, and eat-in bar in the kitchen. The apartment homes will also be pre-wired for high-speed internet and cable TV. Willow Creek community features will include a Resident Clubhouse with complimentary Wi-Fi, a state-of-the-art 24 hour fitness center, internet cafe equipped with computers and printers.

Outside the Resident Clubhouse, a lavishly landscaped garden courtyard will feature a saltwater swimming pool and sun deck with poolside complimentary Wi-Fi. Throughout the community, residents will have access to built-in BBQ pits and picnic tables in the garden area, and a commercial playground area.

Willow Creek will be managed by Sterling Management, LLC, a Mishawaka, Ind.-based property management firm.
