A New Approach To Rental Housing Investment in Spain

Greystar launched our vertically integrated platform in Spain 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 924 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, development, and property management platform.

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, focus on managing and mitigating risk, and a dedicated local operating platform, Greystar aims to maximize investment returns for our investors.

Investment Management

Greystar entered Continental Europe in 2015 with the purchase of OurCampus Amsterdam Diemen in the Netherlands. This acquisition has provided a platform for further intensive investment in the rental housing market in Europe. Acquiring well-established businesses or portfolios in local markets is core to our European city growth strategy. Greystar will continue to leverage its local market expertise and deep industry relationships to identify attractive rental housing investments and management opportunities.
