The Ridge at Crestwood
The Ridge at Crestwood (formerly Sunrise Pointe Apartments) is an apartment community located in the Eastwood neighborhood of the Crestline community. The apartments occupy a hill just west of Red Gap, south of Georgia Road and the railroad tracks, north of I-20, and across Oporto-Madrid Boulevard South from the Oporto National Guard Armory and Lawson Field.
The apartment community consists of 23 buildings on Sunrise Drive, Sunrise Road, Sunrise Circle, Sunrise Lane, Sunrise Place, and East Ridge Lane. The community shares a clubhouse, swimming pool and laundry facility.
The apartments were built in 1978. Before 2010 the complex was owned by H & H Realty. In March 2010 a fire damaged 12 units. Two people were injured escaping from the fire. A man was killed and two others injured during a shootout in the complex's parking lot on September 11, 2010.
In 2018 it was sold by PF Holdings to Forge Partners of Rancho Sante Fe, California for $12.65 million. Forge Partners renovated and rebranded the property as "The Ridge at Crestwood." In November 2019 Forge sold it to Contour Development of Bloomfield, Michigan for $23.39 million.
