Apache Capital launches Present Made, the UK's first purpose-built and designed single-family rental housing business.
- New branded single-family rental housing platform will target net-zero carbon operational model as part of a wider ESG-driven strategy
- Over 3,000 precision-engineered smart homes to be delivered across southeast England using Modern Methods of Construction as part of £1.6bn development pipeline
- Present Made communities will be managed by dedicated on-site teams with a range of services and amenities that promote healthy and sustainable living
Apache Capital has launched Present Made, the UK's first purpose-built and designed vertically integrated single-family housing for rent platform. The company, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Apache Capital Partners, is the first in the UK to design, build and operate family homes for rent.
Present Made will deliver over 3,000
smart homes using 'Modern Methods of Construction' as part of its first
phase, with a focus on suburban locations across southern England.
Present Made will then own and operate these homes for the long-term.
The first three sites in the company's £1.6bn development pipeline
are located in the Oxford-Cambridge Arc, one of the UK's most productive
and innovative regions but with some of the highest housing costs
outside of London.
Present Made is Apache Capital's second UK build-to-rent (BTR) platform after its £2bn multifamily joint venture with developer-operator Moda Living, which is delivering over 6,000 apartments for rent in the UK's largest cities and is backed by major investors including NFU Mutual and Harrison Street.
Richard Jackson, managing director and co-founder of Apache Capital and CEO at Present Made said: "Four years in the making, Present Made from the outset has been designed around our future residents' needs and the growing importance of ESG considerations to both our residents and investors alike.
"Despite record numbers of families renting, no purpose-built single-family rental housing exists in the UK. Present Made will cater to this growing but under-served segment of the rental market by providing high quality smart homes designed and built specifically for rent, delivered through precision engineering and operated by our own dedicated in-house team.
"The biophilic designs, amenities and services provided at Present Made communities are all intended to help promote mental and physical health and wellbeing, where living sustainably is second nature."
