NAI Earle Furman’s Commercial Housing Solutions division closed on 77 acres of development land in Anderson County at the end of January, according to a news release.

The site will be developed into a workforce housing community built to serve nearby industrial and civil employees, the news release said. Built in an opportunity zone, it will be close to major employers Electrolux and First Quality Tissue. The new development will include a walking trail, gathering space and coffee shop, the news release said.

“We are excited to partner with NAI Earle Furman to bring workforce housing to Anderson,” principal investor Eric Roman of HSO Holdings LLC, said in the news release. “This development will be our model for filling a large gap in the market, providing comfortable, affordable housing in a community setting. Our communities will be near large centers of employment, reducing commuting time and expense for our residents.”

The first phase of the development is scheduled to begin after March and will include 100 cottage homes.

I had offered this idea to a similar group a few years ago but they decided against it and it never came to light. The bigger problems were infrastructure needs, crime interests, and employee turnover. Without a stable employee base, it would become another government housing project; a slum. So, I have to assume that has all been considered and solutions were found. Great job.
