Murphy Lane - Holly Springs
New housing set for construction in city
The South Reporter – Thursday, November 22, 2012
Mayor Andre' DeBerry and Alfred Moore, executive director of the Holly Springs Housing Authority, announce 36 new, high quality, affordable homes are coming to the city using tax credits allocated by the Mississippi Home Corporation.
On October 11, the Mississippi Home Corporation allocated $4.2 million in tax credits to the construction of Murphy Lane, a single-family community to be built off Highway 178 West in Holly Springs.
DeBerry and the Housing Authority worked with Rosedale Corporation of Oxford to enter the proposed community in the highly competitive Mississippi tax credit allocation round for 2012, and Murphy Lane was one of only four applications in Congressional District 1 to win and the sole new construction application to win the award.
Moore said, “We are proud to have the opportunity to bring this high quality community to Holly Springs, and, considering the competitiveness of the application as well as the high demand for quality homes in Holly Springs, it is a blessing for the city.”
Murphy Lane will begin construction in January 2013, and it is estimated to be available for move-in in early summer 2013. The general contractor will be Winters Construction of Oxford. If you are interested in becoming a part of the Murphy Lane community, call 248-593-4618.
