UK: Moda Living has partnered with investment manager Ares Management Corporation to develop suburban BTR units across the UK.

Through direct development with Caddick Construction and partnerships with reputable local developers, the platform will target the delivery of more than 5,000 "high-quality purpose-built homes" to the UK market with a gross development value in excess of £1 billion by the end of 2025.

Sites for the first 1,000 homes have been secured and construction is due to start in Q1 2022. The properties will have an average monthly rent of £800 to £900.

The homes will be comprised of one to four bedrooms and located in "select suburban neighbourhoods across the UK that are experiencing significant shortages of price-accessible, quality rental housing".

“We’re excited to partner with Moda to launch this initiative to deliver high-quality, professionally managed, and price-accessible suburban homes across the U.K. The platform will target the deepest and most underserved part of the market, particularly those young families who are working towards home ownership or whose lifestyle or work require more flexibility,” said John Ruane, partner and co-head of Ares European Real Estate. “This partnership represents yet another example of how we are executing on our European rental residential strategy. We have focused on creating platforms in undersupplied markets at affordable price points where demand is greatest.”

“This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to partner with Ares. We look forward to bringing a wide range of experience and skills from the Caddick Group to enable true vertical integration of this platform,” said Johnny Caddick, director of Caddick Developments and chief executive at Moda. “We believe that now is the right time to launch a unique product into this space with a point of difference and we foresee strong nationwide demand for the offer. The single family housing proposition focuses on great lifestyle with great service. We believe this offers people more than bricks and mortar and genuine pride of place for the long-term.”
