YOUR BTR NEWS BUZZ

EDITOR’S NOTE

Welcome to NewsBuzz, brought to you this week by Greystar, a long-term supporter and a UKAA founding sponsor. 

Due to launch next month, we are very excited to unveil our new rental community, Bloom, in London’s Nine Elms area. Bloom offers a range of stunning, light-filled apartments where individuals and families can flourish thanks to private balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows and access to both rooftop garden terraces and surrounding parkland.

Bloom will host a community of more than 2,500 residents, who will benefit from a 24-hour dedicated community management team and a whole host of amenities which include, two rooftop swimming pools, state-of-the-art gyms, pet spas, games rooms, children’s play spaces, libraries and  private dining rooms and lounges. Check out @Bloom.nineelms on Instagram for all the latest updates and look out for the next competition for a chance to win! 

Committed to offering a word class residential experience and creating communities at each of our developments, we continue to host a variety of placemaking and resident events. At Greenford Quay in Ealing, the Summer Series was a huge success with residents and the wider community, check out the highlights on Instagram @GreenfordQuay. At Ten Degrees (@TenDegreesCroydon) they rounded off the season with a carnival inspired party for all ages, with music, games and mouth-watering food. 

As we head into the winter, residents can look forward to jazz nights at Equipment Works (@equipment.worls), wine and cheese nights at Sailmakers (@sailmakers_london), Halloween parties, FIFA World Cup screenings and Christmas festivities. 

We hope you enjoyed the latest edition of News Buzz, until next time! 

 
Kind regards,
The Greystar team
