INDIANAPOLIS (March 14, 2017) – Milhaus, an award-winning developer that specializes in Class A urban infill, mixed-use and multifamily residential buildings, today announces the hiring of James Benning as president of Milhaus construction.

Benning will oversee the construction division and support his team throughout all stages of their projects, from pre-construction through substantial completion. He will ensure consistency through developing standards across the Milhaus construction division. His scope will encompass projects across Indiana, Ohio, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Florida.

Prior to joining Milhaus, Benning led the construction of $650 million of multifamily, retail, commercial, municipal, medical, industrial, federal, highway heavy and land development projects. He also recently developed a $100 million urban, mixed-use development in Nashville, TN.

“Throughout my career, I’ve focused on recruiting, motivating and leading construction teams who enjoy the challenges of designing communities and reinvesting in neighborhoods that have otherwise been forgotten,” said Benning. “This passion is exactly why I’ve joined the Milhaus team, where I’ll drive growth throughout the construction division.” 

In addition to a background in construction and specifically field constructions, Benning brings experience in commercial & consumer lending with Wells Fargo Bank.

“We immediately recognized Benning for his talent in leading construction of mixed-use properties across the United States,” said Tadd Miller, CEO and co-founder of Milhaus. “We strive to bring together top talent to build cohesive, successful teams and we look forward to welcoming Benning.”

Continuing to expand its footprint within the U.S., Milhaus is pursuing strategic growth opportunities in new and existing markets to reach its goal of having 20,000 units in 10 markets by 2020. Milhaus currently has projects under development in Indianapolis, Indiana; Cincinnati, Ohio; Kansas City, Missouri; Louisville, Kentucky; Memphis, Tennessee; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Florida.
