Build to Rent sets new standards in rental living


Build to Rent (BTR) focuses on the importance of a quality brand, delivery, long-term management, creating places of character, place-making and community and setting new standards in rental living and support.

Human-First Tenant Experience Drives Design

Tenant experience will be our primary focus. Furthermore, we aim to enhance health and wellbeing through the design and delivery of amenity-rich, high-quality, sustainable, purpose-built stock. This approach offers a different lifestyle approach. Moreover, our human-first approach creates a new standard for community living. It reflects a 360-degree live, work, and play lifestyle all in one space.

Creating and Supporting Brand Identity and Reputation

It is crucial not to downplay the importance of brand identity and reputation in such a competitive market. Moreover, internal apartment layouts that accentuate the positives and comply with local authority space standards, along with getting the apartment mix right for location and market, and providing amenity-rich, flexible, and personal spaces, all contribute to a solid, preferred brand.

Furthermore, lounges and co-working spaces, organized events and entertainment, games rooms, spas, libraries, gyms, fitness centers, roof terraces, and tranquility zones create an enriched living experience. In addition, staying in is the new going out, emphasizing the significance of these amenities.

Making Memorable Spaces for Modern Community Living

Our designs focus on placemaking;  creating memorable buildings and spaces of character and context that add to the local community and reflect its character and unique ambience. By offering the right product in the right location, we promote a new kind of community living that is highly appealing to the market and connects with their values, aspirations and daily life. The projects are designed to create lasting communities through an amenity-rich offering, where tenants get to know their neighbours and owners maintain the spirit and functionality of your address.
