Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC (Greystar), a global leader in the investment, development, and management of high-quality rental housing properties, today announced the opening of its flagship manufacturing facility for its modular construction business, Modern Living Solutions (“MLS”), which focuses on attainable and sustainable housing. The milestone was met with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the western Pennsylvania site where MLS is in the process of hiring 170 full-time employees to execute the ramp-up and operations of its first modular factory.
Greystar’s Modern Living Solutions business is focused on addressing the chronic undersupply of housing by delivering design-conscious and cost-effective modular apartments while combining development, construction, and modular manufacturing in a vertically integrated business. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Greystar, the largest manager and developer of apartments in the US, Modern Living Solutions has the opportunity to utilize this size and scale to make a positive impact on increasing the housing supply in America. The MLS corporate office is located in Baltimore, MD, and the first factory is located in Knox, PA.
