Build to Rent (BTR) Weekly roundup

Weekly roundup of this week’s Build to Rent news

This weekly update features some of the latest Build to Rent (BTR) news, from Build to Rent providers releasing their half year results, images revealed for a fully octagonal building – a world-first, to planning submissions for new homes.


“We’ve seen lots of news this week as Build to Rent providers release their half year results – showing positive signs and a resilient sector. 

“The increasing importance of proptech is apparent in the current climate, as many technology companies are forced to innovate much quicker to meet the demands placed on us from Covid-19. These innovations are vital moving forward as we enter a ‘new norm’.

“It’s been great to see a few planning submissions as Build to Rent providers look ahead, as what we do know is, people still need homes to rent. And the buzz around the new Paradise building has been fantastic – this landmark tower will be one of the UK’s most distinctive and a great addition to Birmingham’s skyline.”
