What is Build to Rent

Build to Rent (BTR) is a concept that offers a more secure, affordable and long-term living experience where a purpose-built property is owned by institutional investors and occupied by tenants who are offered secure fixed term leases.

The BTR sector is well-established in the US, Europe and Japan and now the UK, where it has gone from a standing start a little over five years ago to number more than 140,000 dwellings in operation or due for completion. The UK market is driven by the same factors creating demand in Australia – housing affordability and demographic and lifestyle change.

Mirvac will develop purpose-built apartment buildings for rental to be held by institutional investors. By doing so Mirvac becomes Australia’s first large scale institutional landlord to enter the market under the Built to Rent model.

Mirvac Group (Mirvac) [ASX: MGR] has launched the Australian Build-to-Rent Club (ABTRC or the club), with the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) committing to a 30 per cent interest as a cornerstone investor.

The seed asset for the club, and Mirvac’s first purpose-built build-to-rent asset in Australia, will be LIV Indigo at Sydney Olympic Park in NSW. With a customer-first focus, Mirvac is committed to offering an exceptional rental experience at LIV Indigo, with dedicated onsite leasing and management, high-quality amenities, a resident program and leading sustainability features. Mirvac will act as the development, investment and property manager.

Mirvac’s CEO & Managing Director, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, said, “Renting has become a lifestyle choice for a much wider group of people who want to be closer to work and other lifestyle services and amenity. We believe build-to-rent can provide renters with better choice, better quality and better security of tenure.Build-to-rent makes good business sense for Mirvac, by providing us with a new asset class and a secure revenue stream, as well as presenting us with a new and growing customer base. We are excited to drive the establishment of the build-to-rent sector in Australia, for which we see enormous potential over time."

Mirvac intends to grow the ABTRC to approximately $1 billion over time, and discussions with additional club investors are ongoing.
