Development Team

The team that’s building a legacy.

The vision for Legacy at Mills River is being brought to life by an experienced team that, together, understands both the value of community and the complexity of senior living.

The development team is led by Beverly-Grant and Retirement Living Associates (RLA), two organizations with strong local roots right here in North Carolina. Construction and development is being handled by Beverly-Grant, while the team at RLA will oversee everything both during development and after Legacy opens.
