The joint venture constitutes EQT Real Estate’s first UK investment and combines its thematic focus on “beds and sheds” in European gateway cities with a social impact strategy underpinned by EQT’s industry-leading sustainability credentials.
The London residential market is characterized by a severe supply shortage of professionally managed, high-quality, good value homes to rent.
The joint venture will promote sustainable living practices within the apartments themselves, while the schemes will include ample cycle storage and will typically be located near green outdoor areas, an important wellness factor.
