Greystar Real Estate Partners and Ivanhoé Cambridge to Form Multifamily Joint Venture in Chile
Santiago, Chile – 20 January 2022 – Greystar Real Estate Partners LLC (“Greystar”), a global leader in the investment, development, and management of high-quality rental housing properties, and Ivanhoé Cambridge, a global real estate industry leader, have extended a collaboration that spans multiple countries by forming a new joint venture to pursue multifamily real estate opportunities in Chile.
The multifamily asset class is still emergent in Chile, and investments in the sector has historically come from local capital. The partnership between Greystar and Ivanhoé Cambridge represents the first global institutional capital investment in multifamily real estate in Chile, marking an important milestone and a groundbreaking opportunity for the industry and the country. This partnership is an important next step in Greystar’s strategy to establish a regional investment platform that addresses the clear and compelling demographic and macroeconomic trends that favor rental housing across Latin America. It also marks the first investment of Ivanhoé Cambridge in Chile, demonstrating its commitment to further diversify its international portfolio while accelerating its investments in the multifamily sector.
Greystar and Ivanhoé Cambridge have partnered on multiple North American and international joint ventures over the years. They will initiate the partnership in Santiago, where they will develop and acquire multifamily projects in submarkets that are centrally located, well-connected, desirable, and with strong rental demand. The venture’s mandate aligns with the vision of both partners to seek innovative, sustainable, accessible, and efficient ways to bring purpose-built and professionally managed rental housing communities to new markets, and to enrich lives and achieve superior investment returns through renter-centric designs and exceptional service delivery.
"Our joint venture with Ivanhoé Cambridge in Chile is a landmark achievement and key indicator of the continued growth and strength of our global strategic alliance as we expand further into international markets,” said Tom Livelli, Managing Director at Greystar. “Together with Ivanhoé Cambridge’s capital investment and Greystar’s in-house capabilities and extensive local relationships, we are opening the door to transform the renter experience in Chile, where we continue to see a bright future and tremendous long-term potential."

We believe in the growth potential of the residential rental market in major cities across the region, increasingly attracting global institutional capital and meaningfully transforming the renter experience. We are very excited to once again join Greystar as an early mover in delivering the next generation of rental housing communities in a new market and contribute to setting new standards in resident services and community design for the people of Chile."
