Affordable single-family rental homes for working families

Preservation Mills is a housing infill project consisting of 23 newly constructed single-family homes. These homes were developed in a neighborhood situated between Peach Street and Beauregard Street along South 3rd and 4th Street. This project is part of a Neighborhood Revitalization effort, through partnership with the City of Monroe.
Each home consists of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open concept floor plan, and attached carport. The homes were designed in a style reminiscent of the architecture that existed when the neighborhood was first developed. The architect for this project is Tim Brandon Architecture. The General Contractor is Damon Mayfield, D&L of Ouachita, Inc. dba Mayfield Construction. Monroe Housing Authority wishes to acknowledge and express appreciation to Progressive Bank and Bancorp South for their support for this project.
Funding for this $3.5 million dollar project was received through competitive grant applications to Louisiana Housing Corporation and the Louisiana Neighborhood Landlord Rental Program. In addition to the $3.5 million dollar investment for new home construction, MHA has also invested over $200,000 for land acquisitions, demolition and site clearing. Should additional funding become available, plans are to develop additional homes in the near future.
