Rental Housing

CenterSquare aims to address America’s housing affordability crisis by providing and investing in high-quality, accessible rental housing communities to meet the evolving needs of growing populations.

A Strategic Response to the Housing Shortage

CenterSquare invests in purpose-built rental communities, manufactured housing communities, and opportunistic multifamily assets as a means to address housing affordability challenges in suburban markets. By partnering with developers, CenterSquare provides high-quality, accessible rental housing options that cater to the evolving needs of growing populations in key submarkets experiencing supply shortages.

Purpose-Built Rental Communities

Partnering directly with national home builders, purpose-built rental communities aim to address housing undersupply by adding new single-family housing units to the marketplace. This subsector of amenity-rich single-family rental communities, located in under-supplied suburban submarkets, is ideally suited for millennials aging into the single-family lifestyle and baby boomers migrating out of home ownership responsibilities.

Manufactured Housing Communities

Partnering directly with manufactured home community developers, these investment opportunities focus on developing well-located affordable housing alternatives in high-growth suburban submarkets.

Opportunistic Multifamily

Due to exuberant underwriting in an era of cheap capital, core multifamily assets and development projects are likely to experience a reckoning. As existing low-rate loans must be refinanced at prevailing interest rates, previous underwriting assumptions will be upended. While the asset itself may not be troubled, a reconstitution of the capital stack is likely to provide opportunities for new investors.
