Caledonia MI Real Estate Absorption Report ~ Crystal Springs Feb 2009

Crystal Springs ~ Kentwood Absorption Report February 2009

Crystal Springs Development in Caledonia, Michigan is a large, residential

suburban housing development that was started in the late 1980's and

most construction was finished in the 1990's although some newer homes

have been built since 2000. There are also a few vacant lots left to develop.

This development covers a large area around the Stonewater Golf Course

at Crystal Springs south of 68th Street to 72nd Street and encompassing

Kalamazoo Avenue on the east and west.  This development has single

family homes and condos, many located right on the Stonewater Golf Course

The public school system is Kentwood, even though the address is Caledonia.

Crystal Springs is close to the shopping plaza at 68th and Kalamazoo,

Kentwood High School, and a short hop to M-6, which is the south beltline for

the Greater Grand Rapids area connecting US 131 on the west and I96 on the

east side of the city.
