New 55+ Active Living Resort Community Expands in Shiloh with the Construction of The Oasis at Hartman Lakes

May 9, 2023

SHILOH, IL – Construction has begun on The Oasis at Hartman Lakes which will be home to a 34-acre 55+ active living resort style private residential rental community at the corner of Hartman Lane and Frank Scott Parkway in Shiloh, IL.

The Oasis will be a four story 116-unit luxury one- and two-bedroom interior corridor apartment building that will become part of the Hartman Lakes development. It will be the perfect complement to the Villas at Hartman Lakes, which are 99 free-standing 2 bedroom leased villas that opened in 2021, catering to the 55+ who are looking to downsize and live in an all-inclusive community.

“The response to the Villas has been overwhelmingly positive by the 55+ active residents,” said Darrell Shelton, owner of Commercial Property Investors. “The Oasis will add an upscale option for those looking to live in a resort style complex with others who are experiencing the freedom of having all the comforts of home without the responsibility of upkeep and maintenance.”

Shelton had a vision to create this one-of-a-kind concept for the “55+ and Wiser” active residents to help build a community of neighbors at the same stage of life who are experiencing a renaissance in their 50s, 60s and beyond as empty nesters, semi-retired and retired individuals.

The new Oasis mid-rise, pet-friendly building will offer a resort feel with over 39 amenities including a large resort pool, a 3rd floor terrace, pickle ball courts, bocce ball, golf simulator, fitness room, clubhouse, business center, three lakes, walking trails, an onsite bar and restaurant a café that will host happy hours in the evenings.

Each apartment features 9ft ceilings, bright white craftsman cabinetry, stainless steel appliances with french door refrigerators, granite counter tops, full size front load washer and dryer, walk-in closets and upscale bathrooms. Separate covered garages are also available.

This Active Living community requires one lessee to be 55 years of age or older. Model apartments are available now to tour and pre-leasing has begun for occupancy in Early 2024. Individuals can visit to view the model apartments or call 618.622.9140 to schedule an appointment to tour a model 1 or 2 bedroom unit.
