GREENSBORO, NC – Printworks Mill is a new housing development in Greensboro that offers affordable options. This historic mill is slowly transforming into a brand new multi-use community.

“Printworks Mill is a fantastic example of how to use and convert a distressed asset and make it a productive place for people,” said Cynthia Blue of Greensboro Neighborhood Development. 143 of the units in the parish will cater for low-income families.

“Every little bit helps when you think about the urgent need for affordable housing,” said James Cox of the Greensboro Housing Authority.

Providing more affordable options has been a priority for Greensboro City officials for some time.

“That’s why we supported the 2016 home bond referendum so strongly,” said Blue.

These bonds will help create even more developments like Printworks Mill.

“The expectation was that with that money we would make about a thousand units. Right now we’re committed to about a third of those funds and we have over 750 units, ”said Blue.

Greensboro’s urban development division wants the rest of this affordable residential property to be distributed across the city.

“We need to be in both areas of opportunity and areas that need revitalization,” said Blue.

Building affordable housing is just one way, as Cox said, that it can solve the housing crisis.

“But also to improve the existing affordable housing,” said Cox.

In this way, people who need it can have endless accommodation options.

Housing applications will be accepted in March and moving in will begin in July.
