NORFOLK, VA (January 2018) – S. L. Nusbaum Realty Co. is pleased to announce the development of Sterling Mill Lofts, a 96 unit apartment community located in Franklinton, North Carolina, a historic community in the Raleigh-Durham Metro area.

A collaborative effort between S.L. Nusbaum Realty Co., the Town of Franklinton, Bank of America and Freddy Mac, the project was financed with a combination of Federal Historic Tax Credits, North Carolina Mill Credits and 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credits.
