Comments by the developer:

Veteran apartments developer Ed Leinbach said he sweats the details because he has to.

“We’re the smaller builder in town,” he said. “Case (& Associates Properties) and American Residential (Group) are both bigger than we are. We just think we just need to put in a little bit of extra stuff so we can compete favorably.

“It costs us a little more but it kind of is what it is. If we can rent it and people like it, then it works well.”

The Leinbach touch is evident in his latest property.

The $15 million Crown Win River, a nearly completed, 157-unit facility at 8336 S. Lewis Ave., features amenities such as keyless entry, a 100 percent nonsmoking environment, free bicycle use, kitchen islands and cable television hook-ups in bathrooms. It is adjacent to Riverbend Apartments, a 1970s multiresidential community that is undergoing a $2.5 million upgrade.

Leinbach said he pulled the trigger on Crown Win River because of the goings-on around it, namely the expansion of the River Spirit Casino Resort to the immediate west and construction of the $400 million A Gathering Place for Tulsa park about 5 miles north on Riverside Drive.

“On either side of the river, between here and downtown, there is a billion dollars in development in five years,” he said. “That’s a huge, huge number. The Gathering Place is really going to knock it out of the park. Whatever the average citizen expects, they are going to be overwhelmed when it’s finished. It’s just so precisely done. Everything is just so well thought-out.”

Leinbach and his partners have owned the Crown Win River site since 1978.

“It’s the last piece of undeveloped land that we own down there,” he said. “With the casino going in, and The Gathering Place and everything else going on, it just seemed like a good time to develop it.

“It’s a good little asset. I think it’s the best one in the area. We’re really happy with it.”
