Mill Creek Announces Expansion Into The Carolinas Market
Alex Eyssen Named Managing Director of Development for New Regional Office
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – July 16, 2019 – Mill Creek Residential, a leading multifamily investor and operator specializing in premier apartment communities across the U.S., today announced its expansion into the Carolinas market.
Mill Creek’s new regional office in Charlotte will mark the company’s 16th in the U.S. and will serve as the hub for Mill Creek’s activity in both North Carolina and South Carolina. Alex Eyssen will serve as the Managing Director of Development for the region and head up the new office.
“Both North Carolina and South Carolina possess numerous locales poised for continued growth, including Charlotte, the Research Triangle and several additional accelerating markets,” said Callum Parrott, Executive Managing Director of Development for the Southeast region for Mill Creek Residential. “We believe Alex is a fantastic fit to lead our new Charlotte office and oversee our expansion into the Carolinas market.”
Eyssen previously held a vice president role at The Bainbridge Companies in which he helped facilitate the company’s development efforts. Eyssen will be responsible for overseeing the development process of the entire Carolinas pipeline, including sourcing, entitlements, and design of new multifamily development opportunities in the region.
“Mill Creek is an industry leader with an excellent track record of developing communities in some of the country’s best markets, so it is fitting that the company is expanding into the Carolinas,” said Eyssen, who holds a Juris Doctor degree from St. Mary’s University School of Law. “The Carolinas provide a unique opportunity for long-term growth and I look forward to working with Mill Creek to expand the company’s presence in the region.”
Prior to Bainbridge, Eyssen served as vice president of development, acquisitions and dispositions at Charlotte-based Campus Crest Development, the national real estate development company for Campus Crest Communities where he helped the company’s ground-up efforts to build a $1.9 billion portfolio of assets. Prior to attending law school, Eyssen earned a bachelor’s of science degree at McMurry University.
Mill Creek has been active in the southeast and recently added a regional office in Nashville. The company has concentrated on low-rise, mid-rise and high-rise developments, including mixed-use communities, and expects to maintain that focus in the North Carolina and South Carolina markets.
