KWA Construction’s project recognized for providing quality affordable housing in a demanding market
Addison, September 22, 2016 — GroundFloor Development’s Millennium Apartments, which reserves 130 of its 164 units for affordable housing, has been named Multifamily Executive’s Mixed-Income Project of the Year for demonstrating excellent project development, design, humanitarianism and visionary leadership. Built by KWA Construction, one of the top general contractors in Texas, Millennium has been widely recognized for the substantial impact it has had on the community by helping fulfill the large demand for workforce housing in McKinney.
Constructed entirely of regionally sourced building materials, the modern 162,440-square foot apartment complex is a fully insulated property that conserves energy by using low flow plumbing fixtures, low-E windows and energy efficient lights and appliances. In addition to being eco-friendly, Millennium offers amenities that support residents’ personal and professional development while providing a place to interact with one another, including a business center equipped with desktop computers and printing services, as well as convenient access to community financial planning and health and nutrition classes. Millennium’s prime location also allows for children to attend schools in Frisco, a city with a highly recognized school district.
“Millennium has become an important part of its community by providing quality housing where it was most necessary,” said Brian Webster, Executive Vice President of KWA Construction. “It’s very rewarding to know this project has positively impacted the lives of many people and it’s an honor to see it recognized by an industry-leading publication.”
Millennium offers a variety of layouts with several community features, including a sparkling swimming pool, enclosed community sun porch and barbecue grills, a fitness center with a variety of exercise equipment and a community center where residents can lounge by a fireplace.
The Millennium project is a combination of not-for-profit organization Inclusive Communities Project, which works to create and expand affordable housing opportunities, and McKinney’s Housing Authority, whose mission is to serve the housing needs of low to moderate income families in the authority’s jurisdiction. These two organizations have worked together to bring the Millennium project and others to the McKinney area.
This year’s Multifamily Executive Awards honor a select 31 winners from a record-breaking number of nearly 400 applications. The full list of honorees can be found at www.multifamilyexecutive.com.
