A bus tour to Atlantic to see condominiums built by private developer Don Sonntag has been tentatively scheduled for March 8.

Mike Taylor, city administrator, said in March a mix of both interested Creston citizens and city officials will take the 70-minute bus trip to Atlantic for the viewing of the condominiums. Sonntag has agreed to pay for the whole trip.

“I can tell them I build quality condominiums,” Sonntag said, “but it’s much better if they can see that quality for themselves. I sure look forward to seeing everyone in March.”

Sonntag has built more than 175 condominium units in the Atlantic area. In January, Sonntag made a presentation to Creston City Council proposing to build at least 14 condominium units in the Cottonwood Subdivision.

Sonntag’s proposing two different floor plans for those first 14 condo units built in the Cottonwood Subdivision.

The first floor plan is 1,458 square feet with two bedrooms, two baths, double car garage and (unfinished) walkout basement. Estimated cost for that floor plan is $259,950.

The second floor plan is 1,229 square feet on a slab with two bedrooms, two baths, large one car garage with an estimated cost of $149,950. Sonntag said a second garage can be added to this floor plan for about $12,000.

The condominiums being viewed on the bus tour in March will be very similar, Sonntag said, to the ones he’s proposing to build in Creston.

Taylor said he currently has a group of at least 12 interested citizens going on the bus trip tentatively scheduled for March 8. Taylor said — if you’re interested in viewing the condominiums in Atlantic — there is still room on the bus.

If interested or would like more information on condominium living, contact Taylor at 641-782-2000 ext. 4 or Creston Mayor Warren Woods at 641-782-2000 ext. 5.
