The North Carolina Housing Finance Agency has named Greenville-based Taft-Mills Group as a recipient of the Housing North Carolina Award for their development of Parkside Commons in Greenville.
The Housing North Carolina Award recognizes achievement in the development of affordable housing. Dustin Mills, President of Taft-Mills Group, accepted the award at the Housing Works Conference in Raleigh.
“We’re honored to have received our industry’s highest honor,” Mills said, “Parkside Commons is truly a special place.”
