Developer and investor Oblix Living appoints property specialist Centrick to launch and operate The Saxons, an exciting new multi-million-pound Build to Rent development in Leicester. 

Centrick will provide its market leading Build to Rent services through its VICI platform. The platform is an end-to-end Build to Rent solution for property developers and funds, designed to simplify, support and streamline operations.

The Saxons Build to Rent scheme includes 100 spacious one and two bedroom apartments, that are flooded with light from large wrap-around windows which gives the interiors an airy and relaxing feel.

Amenities include a gym and separate yoga lounge, co-working hub and residents’ lounge as well as private parking with EV chargers. Residents will also have exclusive access to the courtyard gardens, bringing a sense of alfresco lifestyle to the development. 

“The Saxons is a fabulous boutique scheme, and we are looking forward to working alongside Oblix Living to deliver outstanding consulting, pre-launch, branding and of course operational Build to Rent services which we have continued to grow over many years of experience and expertise in this key growth sector. With community-led technology and a dedicated residents’ experience team, we will work hand-in-hand with residents to create a thriving, sustainable community.”

Clare Johnson, BTR Director, Centrick

The scheme is Leicester’s most exciting and desirable new development, ideally located for residents looking for a stylish and peaceful escape just moments away from the vibrant city core.

Although The Saxons development is in one of the most central locations in the city, each home has been intelligently designed to offer privacy and a level of poise and sophistication that feels removed from the hustle and bustle outside.

With the city’s largest shopping centre located just across the road, residents at The Saxons can not only enjoy all of the state-of-the-art on-site facilities, but also have easy access to a range of dining, entertainment, and retail options right on their doorstep. 

“It is enormously exciting to be working alongside Oblix Living once again, watching The Saxons coming to life, and we are very pleased to be launching this scheme. Working with Oblix Living is always a pleasure. It is great to see their Build to Rent vision come to fruition and to be able to share in the success of launching a high-quality scheme which focuses on the residents and addresses their needs in so many ways.”
