Abbey Court – Onalaska

A new Apartment Complex at Abbey Court, in Onalaska, Wisconsin began construction in the Fall of 2018.  This project is expected to continue beyond 2022 and create a wonderful economic impact to the Greater LaCrosse Area.  Not only is it providing jobs to many carpenters and other tradesmen, but also the materials being used are boosting local suppliers in providing concrete, lumber, roofing, electrical, plumbing and more.  This complex is centrally located in Onalaska, for quick and easy access to Highway 53 and Interstate 90, making a short commute to LaCrosse, Holmen, LaCrescent or West Salem.

Initial groundbreaking commenced late fall of 2018, and by early 2019, construction of both a 3-story 24 unit and a 4-story 40 unit structure were well underway.  During the Spring of 2019, construction of a 5,200 Square Foot clubhouse began, featuring a pool, hot tub, sauna, theater room, work out room, game room, community room, outside cabana hut with a surround sound system and much more, which was completed late 2020.  The clubhouse houses the office headquarters of 3 Amigos Property Management, which manages approximately 1,000 units throughout the greater LaCrosse Area.

A third, 3-story / 24 unit was started in 2020 and completed in 2021.  Currently, a fourth building, housing 80 units, is now up, with completion to be late 2022 or early 2023.

As the demand for housing continues to increase in the LaCrosse area, plans also include (2) additional 4-story 80 unit buildings, tentatively planned to begin in 2022.

Each building includes secure underground indoor parking with a pet / dog wash station, while each unit has its own private patio or balcony.
