CL Plaza: From 'ugliest' to 'one of the nicest'
CRYSTAL LAKE – More than 45 years have passed since the Crystal Lake Plaza shopping center has undergone this extensive of a rebuilding project.
The difference is that, unlike the tornado of 1965, this planned overhaul is welcome. The result is a dynamic, new look with attention to energy efficiency and access. Owners Madison Corporate Group Inc. of Glen Ellyn also recently completed a renovation of the rear parking lot which added 75 spaces and a privacy fence along Jackman Drive.
“I think it took us from being the ugliest building in Crystal Lake to being one of the nicest,” said Bob Nelson, co-owner of Nelson’s Jewelry, which occupied a 12-by-20-foot space 50 years ago and subsequently has expanded to 3,600 square feet.
