Despite the inherent challenges presented by 2020, Crestline Construction continued to evolve and move forward with projects that will form the future. Our hardworking, dedicated team of employees have
ensured growth and quality work even with the numerous hurdles that arose.
2020 CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS AT A GLANCE:
Lake Meadows Assisted Living is a brand-new building we completed in the fall of 2020, four months earlier than scheduled. This state-of-the-art facility houses over 120 units and features several community amenities, including: a screening room, computer lab, salon, private dining room, public dining room, nature path, and café. Seen while driving on I-69, the Lake Meadows building is located conveniently within Fishers, Indiana and will provide needed elder care services for years to come.
One of the things we value at Crestline Construction is the historic worth of buildings. While brand-new buildings are great, re-purposing existing buildings poses unique opportunities. We have been very excited to have started work on threeadaptive reuse projects: Central Lofts in Evansville, Indiana, Backstay Lofts in Union City, Indiana, and Legacy Place in Urbana, Ohio.
We value the historic worth of buildings.
Central Lofts is a reimagining of the old YMCA building, positioned southeast from the Evansville courthouse. With the YMCA functions having been fully moved to an adjacent structure, AP Development LLC saw how theold building was perfect for residential use. The interior that has long sat untouched will be demoed and rebuilt as senior living apartments with individual utilities. The central location is ideal for senior residents in the Evansville area. Central Lofts will be completed in Fall 2021.
Right on the border of Indiana and Ohio sits Union City. The Backstay Welt company once existed in the building recognizable for its rooftop water tower visible around town. For decades, the structure has sat abandoned, no opportunity able to fully realize the potential present. Now, in partnership with AP Development LLC, we have forged forward with a plan to turn the upper and the lower floors into apartments with communal areas and potential for commercial use. Conveniently located and accessible throughout town, Backstay Lofts will be completed in 2021 and greatly serve the local community.
Anyone who has travelled through small towns in America will have recognized the number of historic buildings in these areas. Urbana, Ohio is no different, with several classic structures poised for a transformation. The Legacy Place project, in partnership with T&H Investments, will see three buildings in the area undergo historic renovation for modern use: Urbana North Elementary, Urbana South Elementary, and the Douglas Inn. The two school buildings have sat empty since the school district was consolidated in recent years. Our teams are actively working the buildings to be made into functional senior living facilities. The Douglas Inn, with a local history spanning over a century, is a landmark for downtown Urbana. The adaptive reuse efforts will give new life to this local landmark and provide needed housing in the area.
We also had the opportunity this year to work on some commercial projects, in particular the recent Shoe Show buildout at the Eastland mall in Evansville. Such endeavors allow us to create a legacy beyond our residential work and aid in the economic growth within those communities.
2020 was also year of personnel additions and promotions. Our intern, Maddiline Reeves, joined our team full-time as Contract Administrator, and Pendah Jallow is now the Director of Contract Administration. Jordan Johnson, Ben Girton, Robert Richardson, and Matthew Fogarty were brought on as Assistant Superintendents. Skyler Reis has taken on the role of Project Manager while Austin Dunn is the new Project Engineer. Susan Jallow has joined the team as the new Construction Accountant.

Bud Holmes has played several roles for our team recently helping with procurement and to close projects. Recently Bud has settled in as the new Director of Operations. As the Crestline Construction team grows, we know that our new employees will maintain the work ethic that makes Crestline projects stand out.
HERE'S TO 2021:
We are very excited as we enter 2021. Beyond finishing our currently active projects, we will be starting new builds in the Midwest, the Southeast, and other regions as we continue to seek additional opportunities across North America. The construction market is ever evolving, and we plan on evolving with it as we expand operations and gain national prominence.
