After more than 30 years of construction project history between Lengacher Bros. and the Jehl Brothers, a new generation of decision makers is building a project together: the Lake Forest Cove Apartments in Fort Wayne, Ind. Carole McConnell, property manager, is one of nine siblings and/or cousins involved in the project who said when it came down to planning, they never contemplated having anyone else but Lengacher Bros. manage the general contracting for them.
“When a project is locally owned from start to finish like ours, there is just a pride in what we do,” said McConnell. “We wanted someone with that same mindset who we knew and trusted – we have a history with Lengacher Bros. They are vested and genuinely care about quality work, and the people they work for.”
Lake Forest Cove Apartments, located near Georgetown Shopping Mall, will have 32 units in 17 buildings, comprising of 15 duplexes and two single units. The family owns the property and will continue to lease and maintain the apartments. They have a planned completion date in the fall of 2018.
Lengacher Bros. is the general contractor for the Lake Forest Cove Apartments, in addition to handling the framing, roofing and siding.
