Following the launch of Solstice Apartments in 2020, which currently sits at 98% occupancy, Grainger plc is expanding its portfolio of Build to Rent properties with Enigma Square. This is Grainger’s second Build to Rent development in Milton Keynes, which responds to the increasing demand for Build to Rent properties in the area. The scheme is expected to welcome its first residents in November 2022.

Enigma Square includes 261 homes – a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with some featuring balconies. Homes are equipped with modern furniture, with prices starting at £1,045 per month. As a new-build development, all Enigma Square apartments are energy efficient and have been graded with an energy performance certificate (EPC) of A to C, with the aim of enabling residents to save on energy bills.

Located on North Row in the centre of Milton Keynes, Enigma Square is close to city centre amenities, including the Centre:MK shopping centre and Milton Keynes Central Station. The eight-storey development is also a 35-minute commute to central London, benefitting those who work remotely and travel to London on a regular basis.

“We are redefining the way that people rent homes, and at Enigma Square we look forward to creating a brilliant new community that combines the flexibility of renting with high quality homes and professional services to give our residents the best experience possible.

“Enigma Square marks Grainger’s second scheme in Milton Keynes, following on from the successful launch of Solstice Apartments in 2020. Having a second site in the city provides potential residents with additional opportunities and existing residents with the flexibility to move between schemes should their circumstances change.”

Helen Gordon, Chief Executive, Grainger
