Heritage at Sliding Rock Earns 2018 Palmetto Housing Achievement Award
Greenville, S.C. – In the fall of 2014, Greenville Housing Authority (TGHA) imploded Scott Towers, a 200-unit 14-story public housing high-rise senior development that had met its useful life. September 2017, TGHA opened Heritage at Sliding Rock, the second of three planned developments honoring the commitment of the Greenville Housing Authority to replace all affordable senior housing units lost from the implosion of Scott Towers. Heritage at Sliding Rock is a newly constructed 60 unit development conveniently located in the Nicholtown Neighborhood close to the downtown business district. The 60 unit development consists of one 3 story building with 42 one-bedroom and 6 two-bedroom units and 12 two-bedroom cottages. The one and two bedroom units are fully accessible and ADA compliant.
