Legacy at Mills River is proudly an eco-friendly retirement community. By building eco-friendly homes, we’re caring for more than your future; we’re caring for our shared future as well. That’s why our entire campus will be built following rigorous eco-friendly LEED principles of construction.
This community is being spearheaded by local developers—longstanding North Carolinians who are working to build a stunning, sustainable future not only for the members of Legacy, but for our neighbors and fellow humans as well.
We are using the best practice methods as defined by the LEED program to minimize our impact on the environment. We are including rain water collection for irrigation, water gardens to retain storm water on site, extensive insulation to minimize heating and cooling costs, and LED lighting for reduced energy requirements and maintenance costs.
