London is a Build-to-Rent hotbed, and it’s easy to see why. The city is the perfect location for inclusive communities with five-star social spaces and plush homes. And while the capital now has Build-to-Rent units in every pocket of the city, it’s North London where there is plenty of intrigue. So much so that we’ve put this guide together looking at why North London is a Build-to-Rent hotspot, along with some of the communities already thriving in the north of the capital.
The most popular part of London?
North London has long been one of the most desired areas in the capital, whether it’s people seeking out the urban buzz in Islington, peace and tranquillity in Hampstead, or international travel connections in King’s Cross.
Build-to-Rent operators have recognised North London’s appeal and set out to create stylish communities in some of the most exciting neighbourhoods. From Camden to Wembley Park, there are many Build-to-Rent homes in North London that are changing the renting landscape in the capital.
Build-to-Rent homes in North London
From Co-Living to Multi-Family Homes, there is a range of Build-to-Rent communities in North London. Here’s a pick of the best ones run by excellent operators like Essential Living and Quintain Living.
Quintain Living, Wembley
The Quintain Living community is set in Wembley Park. Here, you will find a plethora of buildings from the Build-to-Rent specialist, with each one offering something a little different. Quintain Living has transformed the area of Wembley in the process, making it a London hotspot with stylish homes and high-end amenities.
Essential Living, Islington
Over in Islington, you will find Vantage Point, a high-end Build-to-Rent community from Essential Living. Vantage Point is catered to the modern-day renter with an on-site gym, residents lounge and excellent homes. It’s got great views, too, which is a major appeal for many renters.
Sonder Anglers Lane is located just a hop and a skip away from the buzzing Camden Market. It enjoys a super-prime location right on the doorstep of one of London’s most popular neighbourhoods and appeals to renters who desire flexible living choices – you can stay for as little as three nights at Sonder.
Another Camden gem, HWC offers 169 serviced apartments to a range of renters looking for short term and long-term living. One, two and three-bedroom options are available, and like Sonder, HWC enjoys a prime Camden location just a stone’s throw away from Regent’s Park.
Gravity, Finsbury Park
Gravity is a Co-Living space in the heart of Finsbury Park. This is where renters go when they’re looking to beat the isolation often found in London. Co-Living offers even more of those important community vibes than Multi-Family Homes, and Finsbury Park, with its excellent travel connections and local shops and restaurants, is the ideal neighbourhood to house a vibrant Co-Living community.
The future of Build-to-Rent in North London
There are already some great Build-to-Rent homes in North London, but it’s an area with room for more. Operators looking to maximise London living should focus on North London as a place to bring their Build-to-Rent designs to life.
With excellent travel links, some of the best restaurants and shops in the city and trendy neighbourhoods, North London is easily one of the best spots for Build-to-Rent investment – and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see more units crop up in the next few months and years.
The best of the capital
Major cities like London and Manchester are the perfect Build-to-Rent locations, thanks to their big-city status and need for increased community living. And it’s in North London where Build-to-Rent is currently thriving. Developers and operators could do a lot worse than exploring the north of the capital for their next Build-to-Rent venture.
