About us

High Street Residential is the leading North East property development company specialising in Build to Rent schemes.

From Newcastle’s tallest building to Salford’s most stylish complex, we create smart communities where people love to live.

What we do:

​We are the largest Build to Rent developer in the UK and at the forefront of a record wave of investment in Private Rental Sector developments. We leverage our expertise, reputation for quality, and professional partnerships to manage a £1.5 billion pipeline of Buy to Let properties in key areas with premium rental opportunities.

Our secret lies in three key steps…


Our three steps:

1) Discovering unique opportunities

Leveraging the financial strength of our £1 billion valued parent company, The High Street Group, we locate developments in areas of opportunity & demand, creating unique and powerful investment opportunities for our institutional partners and individual investors.

We work with local partners and associates to identify development sites. We spend significant time and resource planning the perfect project, very often amending existing planning permissions to construct properties ideal for both investors and residents.

2) Future-proofing our developments

We embrace the power of technology to make people love where they live. Our developments are interwoven with smart-tech from the very first day of the build, increasing the longevity of rental values versus our competitors.

Our smart phone app offers a unique convenience for our residents who can organise their life at the touch of a button; from dog walking, to ordering dinner from our on-site restaurants, booking communal spaces, and attending our neighbour-networking events meet to make new friends.

Moreover, residents benefit from easily accessing information, reporting maintenance issues, and have access to a forum to contact property management or other residents.

In short, we provide a truly unparalleled service in each of our buildings.

3) Creating urban communities

By providing affordable, world class living in areas of regeneration, we create the urban hubs of tomorrow; building new communities where people love to live. In turn, this ensures our properties are well maintained by the young professionals, families, and retirees who inhabit them throughout their lifetime

To this end, our buildings cater for the entire renting cycle; from student accommodation up to retirement living. Plus, our property management team will get to know each resident personally, ensuring an ever evolving experience for our residents.

Finally, our driven team of experienced, motivated professionals simply match the right people with the right properties.

“Our vision is underpinned by our drive to provide an end-to-end solution to institutional and individual investors in the Private Rental Sector.”

Newcastle Millennium Bridge, Tyne Bridge, Sage Gatehsead

Newcastle Upon Tyne

Rich in heritage, with an established economy and excellent transport links, Newcastle is one of our personal favourite cities.

With a thriving economy, a large airport, world-class culture, and what has been described fantastic buy-to-let investing opportunities “offering great yields and with a huge amount of potential for growth”, we consider Newcastle a true hot-spot for the Buy-to-Let market.

Newcastle is home to a staggering amount of new developments, not least our £45 million investment into creating 161 new apartments in the beautiful and historic Hadrian’s Tower, it is a city on the rise.

Birmingham

The youngest city in Europe, with under 25s accounting for nearly 40% of the population, Birmingham is home to 450 schools, five universities (two ranking among the top 100 in the world), over 12,000 start-ups, and a plethora of worldwide companies who have flocked to the region (including HSBC, Barclays, Deutsche Bank, and Linklaters).

All of this has resulted in the West Midlands, Birmingham, and its surrounding areas quickly becoming the fastest growing region in the UK in the lead up to 2020.

Manchester

As the main hub for business, financial, & professional services outside London, the UK’s largest city, and with an actively growing business rate beyond the national average, Manchester is of strong interest to many Buy to Let investors and developers.

For High Street Residential, our interests also lie in the potential of the city, with a disposable income that is set to grow by 28% in the next ten years and 110,000 jobs set to be created by 2024.

As such, we have invested heavily in the region and will continue to develop in regenerative sites in the near future.
