Touchstone is pleased to announce their appointment as 3rd party managing agents for The Blockhouse, Brighton.

The Built to Rent managing agents, who are proud to be part of the Places for People group, have over ten years’ experience within the Build to Rent sector and have worked with some of the UK’s biggest and best-known landlords and institutional investors. The Blockhouse will be an exciting new addition to their growing Build to Rent work, which spans the UK.

“We are delighted to be increasing the number of Build to Rent developments that we manage – further growing our Build to Rent 3rd party management presence within the industry.”

The Blockhouse is ideally located in the heart of Brighton’s city centre, within a five-minute walk from both the train station and famous shopping area, ‘The Lanes’.

The new development will consist of a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and townhouses, as well as a gym, co-working space, lounge and roof terrace. The homes will be accompanied by a social events programme for residents and a first in class customer experience, co-ordinated by Touchstone’s onsite team.

Touchstone’s consultancy service allows them to partner with investors to optimise their development by combining local knowledge and their industry expertise. The service advises clients on areas such as ERVs and the design of their scheme, which encompasses amenity provision, apartment layouts, technology, and their customer’s journey.  

As The Blockhouse nears completion, the Build to Rent team at Touchstone have mobilised the scheme, procuring furniture, recruiting their on-site team, and developing a white labelled solution that has included website creation and brand development, to create its own identity.

“The brand that we have created along with the influence we’ve had on areas such as the design provides a robust platform from which The Blockhouse can grow in this incredibly exciting market. We look forward to providing our new residents with the kind of premium experience that only Touchstone can deliver.”

Kirpal Rehinsi, Build to Rent Business Development Associate Director, Touchstone

Touchstone looks forward to welcoming their first residents to The Blockhouse at the end of this year, when they will begin managing and operating the homes.
