BUILD TO RENT MARKET

PANEL DISCUSSION: The potential of the build-to-rent concept for Ireland

Build to Rent describes the practice of delivering purpose-built residential rental accommodation and associated amenity space that is designed with the sole purpose of being used as long-term rental accommodation and professionally owned and managed by an institutional landlord. The sector has become increasingly attractive to investors, developers and funders alike and considering the severe supply shortages inherent in Dublin and many other Irish cities, it is a sector that we are going to hear a lot more about in the Irish market over the next few years. Our panellists will discuss:

  • The impact on long and short term investment
  • The impact on communities
  • How purpose built rental properties meet the needs of affordable housing?
  • What can housebuilders and rental investors do by collaboration?
