Latest build-to-rent project announced by fast-expanding Grainger Plc

first_imgGrainger Plc, the UK’s largest build-to-rent company, has invested £28m in a new development hot on the heels of Chancellor Philip Hammond’s announcement yesterday that the government is to spend £8bn supporting build-to-rent and private housebuilding.The company, which saw its share price rise following both announcements, says it is to finance the building of, and then own, Grainger’s Yard in Birmingham.“We are pleased today to announce our latest investment in one of our key target locations,” says Chief Executive Helen Gordon (pictured, left).It’s a 156-apartment block of purpose-built, privately-rented homes on the fringes of the city’s fast-gentrifying central Jewellery Quarter (pictured, right).The acquisition is part of a plan to invest £850m in the sector over the next three years, and in addition to £389m already spent this year including a £100m development in Salford, £57.3m development in Kew, London and a £40m property in Leeds.Newcastle-based Grainger is leading the built-to-rent charge in the UK, spurred on by a Conservative government keen on the sector’s ability to provide privately-funded rental apartments in large number at zero cost to the Treasury.Although the Chancellor didn’t mention it in his speech, build-to-rent is a key plank in the government’s plans to provide the 300,000 additional homes needed every year in the UK to keep up with demand – twice the current number of new homes for sale or rent being built at the moment.The company has a net rental income of £37.4m a year and has 8,600 homes under management worth £2.63 billion, half of which are in helen gordon Build to Rent apartments build-to-rent November 23, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Gunners take Viviano on loan

first_img Serie B club Palermo announced the deal with a short statement on their official website which read: “Goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano has been released to Arsenal on loan with the option to buy.” A product of the Brescia youth system, Viviano went on to play for the club for five years before signing Bologna, with Inter Milan purchasing 50 per cent of his registration before the move. He went on to spend a season at the San Siro but a knee injury curtailed his first-team opportunities in Milan with a move to Palermo completed in 2012. The club were relegated to Serie B last season but Viviano spent the campaign on loan at Fiorentina, who finished fourth in Serie A. Wenger has already added the free transfer signings of forward Yaya Sanogo and the returning Mathieu Flamini and has now strengthened another key position at the Emirates Stadium. Wenger revealed his delight at being able to bring Viviano to north London, admitting the goalkeeper had been on his radar. “Viviano is a player that we have rated for some time and we are very pleased to have signed him on loan,” he told “He’s experienced and has proved himself at a high level, and provides us with excellent cover to our existing goalkeepers.” The 27-year-old Italy international becomes Arsene Wenger’s third signing of the summer and will compete with Wojciech Szczesny to be the Frenchman’s first-choice stopper for the remainder of the campaign. Wenger is believed to have had a long-standing interest in Viviano as he looks to create competition in between the posts for Arsenal, with Lukasz Fabianski also available as an option.
