Ropemaker Properties have appointed Fresh, the UK’s leading specialist third-party manager of residential for rent to mobilise & manage their upcoming build to rent scheme in Cardiff City Centre. This appointment comes off the back of Fresh being mandated to manage the first Co-living scheme in the southwest.
Fresh is also providing advisory services during the development of the scheme, using its in-depth resident insight to inform the design of the amenity space that includes a roof terrace with an outdoor kitchen & BBQ, gym, private dining area, residents lounge, library and co working space. The building will provide high quality homes across 152 studios,1 & 2 bedroom apartments.
The scheme will also host Fresh’s signature Be Programme for BTR homes – “Belong”. This will offer residents a full social programme, clubs and experiences to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and encouragement to engage with the wider community.
Welcoming the announcement, Strategy and Business Development Director at Fresh, Craig Bryant, said:
"We’re thrilled to continue to build our relationship with Ropemaker Properties and to be able to offer Cardiff residents a high-quality home along with excellent amenities. This appointment is the next step in continuing to expand our multi-award winning offering across BTR, Co-living and PBSA space."
Paul Hillier, from BP Investment Management Limited, said:
"The experience of our residents and the community around our schemes is hugely important to us. Throughout our exacting selection process, Fresh stood out for their insight and the proven difference that they make to resident’s lives, as well as their operational expertise. We are looking forward to working with them throughout the development of the scheme and property brand then on to operation."
The scheme is being developed by Crossmark Developments and is expected to be operational in June 2023.
