About Mill Creek Residential 

Headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., Mill Creek Residential is fully integrated with verticals, including build-to-rent single-family and multifamily development, construction, acquisitions, investment and property management, and provides high-quality rental communities in desirable locations across the country.

We are proud to have been named the third largest developer and third largest builder in 2023 by the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) and included as one of the top six largest developers in the seven years prior, according to NMHC. We use extensive and proven expertise to deliver on our mission of creating meaningful relationships and extraordinary places.

Although we are a national company, we immerse ourselves in our 29 chosen markets to proactively pursue development opportunities in locations close to key employment centers, transportation, and desirable shopping and entertainment districts. Since our inception in 2011, Mill Creek has developed and acquired more than 190 communities, totaling more than 54,300 rental homes across the United States. This year, we announced our expansion into Utah and the greater Salt Lake City market, marking the 29th market in our portfolio.

Mill Creek’s national portfolio comprises 125 communities, totaling over 34,200 rental homes with a total capitalization of $16.9 billion. We use our deep understanding of each market, our extensive expertise, data-driven decisions, and a fresh, innovative approach to the rental industry to create places where people thrive — and build real and enduring value for our investors, residents and associates.
