The Experts at GAA Provide Executive Level Insights and Strategies that Mitigate the Risk and Maximise the Value of Your Build-to-Rent Scheme. 

There are numerous countries in the early stages of developing build-to-rent (BTR) apartment schemes similar to what has existed in the U.S. for several decades. And with good reason: the U.S. apartment industry has evolved to be a sophisticated asset class, setting an exciting new standard for design, development, technology integrations, operational excellence, resident experience, and, of course, financial performance.
