Shiloh Construction Proceeds

Despite problems, Shiloh construction project proceeds.

In the United States in the state of Missouri,

SHILOH — What recession?

If Kevin Bollman is to be believed, tough economic times have had only a minimal effect on plans for the Villages at Wingate. That's an ambitious 172-acre residential and commercial development now partly under construction at Shiloh — not far from Scott Air Force Base.

Bollman owns J2K, a major developer of the Villages at Wingate. The project, with an estimated cost of more than $140 million, was announced in the summer of 2007. The developers have plans for 270 houses and villas, 96 apartments for older residents, 75,000 square feet of retail space and 60,000 square feet of office space.

"We never stopped going forward with our plans" despite the recession, Bollman said. "And now it's good to see the housing market recovering, at least here."

He predicted the development could be built within five years.

Many people are interested in the project, said Bollman, who touted it as the first master-planned community that has come to fruition in Metro East.

and in the Middle East, in Samaria.

In my Shiloh.
