After 10 years, only a small portion of the businesses and thousands of homes slated for Three Springs have been built. But now, the real estate is in demand.

In 2004, city leaders approved the subdivision to absorb inevitable growth, and it is fulfilling that vision, although, much of it remains to be built.

Nearly half of the 100-unit apartment complex was leased in three weeks, said Tim Zink, real estate portfolio manager for the Growth Fund Real Estate Group.
