MISSION - Vesta Corporation, a leader in affordable rental housing communities, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony last month for its newest office in the Lone Star state. The new office, in Mission, is the company’s second in Texas, a state in which Vesta operates 10 communities. Vesta Corporation was recently recognized as the fifth largest acquirer of affordable housing units in the United States.

More than 60 people joined in the grand opening celebration, including Charles “Chuck” Moran, Vesta's executive vice president of operations, and George Vela, vice president of the RGV Apartment Association Board. Mr. Vela provided the welcome speech. Vendors from Rasa Flooring, Sherwin Williams, Roque's Construction, A-1 Garage Doors, ACME Flooring, and Leslie's Pools were also in attendance, adding to a heightened sense of broad community support for Vesta's affordable housing efforts in the region.
