Build to rent is taking off across the UK as renters see the benefits of a professional rather than a private landlord. The needs of ‘generation rent’ are firmly on the agenda, with the Department for Communities and Local Government allocating £1 billion for build to rent development, as well as appointing a task force and champion to drive the cause.
Within London, the impact of this new enthusiasm for build to rent is already being felt, in the popular Wembley Park area. Developer Quintain has just launched its second purely rental apartment building, Dakota, which forms part of the Tipi development.
Michael Allen, Head of Tipi, shares details of the newly opened building,
“We’re delighted that Dakota opened on schedule, with the first customers moving in on the day we opened. We look forward to welcoming them to a new era of renting in London.”
“Dakota is the second Tipi apartment building to open at Wembley Park and follows the success of our first building Montana, which has attracted renters from across the capital and beyond. Our aim of making Tipi the best way to live in London certainly has struck a chord with those looking to rent high quality, contemporary accommodation in a super-connected area.”
Dakota provides a selection of one, two and three bedroom apartments, all finished to a superior standard and are available furnished or unfurnished. Most enjoy their own private balcony or terrace and full furniture packages are available. The building, along with Montana, surrounds an acre of landscaped gardens with stunning water features.
Customers of Dakota benefit from a range of hotel-inspired services, including a 24 hour concierge, night security and the Nest – a social space with soft seating, HD TV, dining table and 100Mb/s broadband for those wishing to use it to work from home. Each apartment comes with 40Mb/s as standard and broadband is included in the rent. The Nest follows the popularity of the Deckhouse in the adjacent Montana apartment building, which provides residents with a pool table, HD TV with Sky Sports, kitchenette and outside terrace for enjoying the warmer weather.
Thanks to its Wembley Park location, Dakota also provides customers with easy access to London Designer Outlet, with its 50 stores, 20 restaurants and coffee shops and nine screen Cineworld cinema, as well as the plethora of entertainment on offer at the SSE Arena, Wembley and Wembley Stadium*.
Apartments are priced from £1,650 pcm with no agency fees, lower than average security deposit and electricity, water & superfast broadband included in the rent.
