Grainger launches first build-to-rent scheme in Leeds

Paul Stevens Uploaded 12 August 2021: UK: A new £40 million build-to-rent scheme based in Leeds city centre has opened up to residents.

Located on the historic site of the former Yorkshire Post building, The Headline is the latest project from the UK’s largest listed residential landlord, Grainger PLC, its first build-to-rent development in Leeds, and is ready for occupation this August. 

The complex, which overlooks the River Aire, will feature 242 new homes and come with a range of amenities and professional onsite management services. 

The development will include a 24-hour gym, high-speed wifi, a wellness studio and a private dining room, while residents will also have access to services such as a dedicated onsite Resident Services team and handyman service.  

Monthly rents will start from £905, with flexible tenancy options of up to three years available. In addition, the one- and two-bedroom apartments will come with a range of furniture options, storage and integrated appliances.

The Headline adds to Grainger’s regional build-to-rent portfolio, which includes two recent launches: The Filaments [Salford] and Gatehouse Apartments [Southampton]. The portfolio also features more established developments such as Brook Place [Sheffield], Solstice Apartments [Milton Keynes], Hawkins & George [Bristol] and Clippers Quay [Manchester], one of the UK’s largest rental developments outside of London. 

Helen Gordon, chief executive, Grainger PLC said: “We are delighted to be launching our first build-to-rent scheme in Leeds, adding to our growing regional portfolio of high quality homes. Our approach is to design with the resident top of mind, from the building itself to the amenities and services available, creating an enjoyable, hassle-free way of renting.

“Instilling a sense of community is key for Grainger and we hope that The Headline will not only provide stylish living for our residents, but support wellbeing, social interaction and intergration with the local community," she added.

The Headline is roughly a ten-minute walk from Leeds station, coffee shops, bars and restaurants.
