Our formidable growth since our founding in 2011 is a direct result of the people who work at Mill Creek and the relationships – and places – we quite literally build. Our team is widely recognized as the best in the industry, with an unprecedented track record of leadership and performance. Each day, we come to work energized with forward-thinking strategies to deliver an exceptional living experience to the people who call a Mill Creek apartment community “home”.
