A New Approach To Rental Housing Investment in France
In 2018, Greystar launched our vertically integrated platform in France to acquire and develop purpose-built student accommodation and rental housing. Since entering the European market in 2013, Greystar has built a significant high-quality rental housing portfolio by investing in student accommodation and purpose-built rental housing across the continent. In Europe, the team has grown to over 500 skilled professionals, leading the way in investment management, development, and property management of rental housing. The Greystar vertically integrated rental housing platform combines local market expertise with the power of a global investment platform.
The Greystar strategy in France is initially focused on Paris, prioritizing student accommodation and targeting development opportunities and the acquisition of operational assets and platforms. Greystar is also committed to investing outside Paris as part of a long-term growth program and has identified a number of attractive cities across France with large university populations.
The Greystar European growth strategy continues to focus on targeting world-class cities that lack institutionalized purpose-built rental housing and student accommodations. By investing intelligently with a global capital allocation strategy, maintaining our focus on managing and mitigating risk, and a dedicated local operating platform, Greystar aims to maximize investment returns for our investors.
