Frequently supported by global influences, national demographics, local migration and historic undersupply, residential strategies provide the opportunity to capture inflation, with the need for planning/zoning approval and inflated construction costs restricting future supply.

Residential Strategies

  • UK Student Accommodation

    90 North has extensive experience with UK purpose built student accommodation over the last decade, with 3,000 beds currently under management. With a very compelling and growing demand versus supply imbalance, underpinned by a rapidly growing number of domestic 18 year olds, compelling opportunities exist for both investment and development transactions across the UK.

  • US Multifamily

    Hybrid office and home working has changed where and what housing is needed, with inflated home purchase costs making occupiers increasingly reliant on rental properties. Both interstate and intrastate migration are creating localised outperformance, with rent affordability being increasingly pertinent. As well as Midwest value-add investments, working with best-in-class developers provides options across the US.

Example Investments

    Purchased as office accommodation in London’s midtown, considerable value was added by achieving residential planning consent.
