Charlotte’s MillBridge Honored as 2019 Community of the Year


MillBridge, a residential master-planned community by Landeavor, has been named the 2019 Community of the Year by the Home Builders Association of Greater Charlotte. The recognition was announced at the Association’s Major Achievement in Market Excellence (MAME) Awards on Thursday evening.

“We continue to receive some of the highest accolades in our industry for MillBridge,” states Adam Lorry, principal and co-owner of Landeavor. “I attribute its success as one of the top communities in all of the southeast to the vision and strategic plan developed years ago following our purchase of the community.” Landeavor purchased MillBridge in 2011 and, during its tenure, has recorded over 700 new home sales. MillBridge topped the Charlotte market in single-family home sales in 2018 according to findings by Metrostudy.

“We have received several awards for our community in the past, which is why it’s so rewarding to be recognized for the strengths that allow us to provide a unique small-town feel for our residents,” states MillBridge Marketing Manager, Kelley Archer. “Given the booming and competitive market in and around Charlotte, this award really says a lot about our community here in Waxhaw.”

Through the MAME Awards program, the Home Builders Association of Greater Charlotte honors builders, developers, remodelers and associates who have made a significant and creative contribution in residential marketing. This marks the second time in three years that MillBridge has been selected as Community of the Year by the Association (2017 and 2019, the award cannot be received by the same community in consecutive years). Due to its array of resort-like amenities including its pool pavilion, full coffee bar and movie theater, MillBridge was presented the Community Amenity Package of the Year award in 2014 and 2016 as well. MillBridge was also recognized for Best Community Signage at this year’s award ceremony.
