SENTINEL’S BUILD TO RENT OPPORTUNITY IN AUSTRALIA

In Australia, Sentinel Real Estate has been investigating the apartment rental market and laying the foundations for the launch of our Build to Rent model for residential communities since 2011. Our offering has been developed specifically for the Build to Rent Australia landscape and is grounded in 55 years' experience in property management, successfully running multifamily housing communities in the United States.

We are proud to introduce Kinleaf, our Australian Build to Rent brand. Premium and sustainable, Kinleaf developments are mindfully designed and thoughtfully managed communities, created to offer Australians a convenient and transparent rental experience in vibrant, desirable communities throughout the country.

A Proven Solution to a Fragmented Market

We completed Australia's first Build to Rent development in Subiaco, Perth in 2019 and saw 100% of Element 27's studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom apartments leased within nine months. Phase 2 of Element 27 opened in April of 2022 and has since achieved similar success. In addition to a premium lifestyle, with quality community amenities and thoughtfully designed apartments; it offers clarity of tenancy, with a range of leasing periods and simple renewals; transparency, with a bias-free application process; and convenience, with on-site management and maintenance staff.

With the two phases now fully operational, and two additional phases under development, the property has been rebranded as The Elements by Kinleaf. This new name reflects both the integration of the phases and the property itself within the Kinleaf portfolio.

The Elements by Kinleaf has unparalleled sustainability integrated into their design and function. Phase one achieved Carbon Neutral Certification, the first apartment development in Australia to do so, and Phase two has received a 5 Star Green Star Design & As Built v1.3 certified rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.

Our newest addition to the Kinleaf portfolio is The Briscoe by Kinleaf, newly completed in West Melbourne. Along with our Australian offices in Melbourne and Perth, Sentinel has established a network of relationships with local partners and suppliers that work to bring our rental property communities to life.

A Growing Population and a New Dream

Over the last ten years, the Australian Dream of home ownership has shifted and the proportion of renting households has steadily risen, with almost a third of all Australian households renting their residences. Stable Australian population growth,​ particularly in the urban areas of Perth and Melbourne, contributes to the struggle of housing affordability in Australia, with people questioning whether it is better to rent or buy. Rental statistics show supportive demographic trends, urbanization, affordability issues and changing lifestyle preferences will likely drive demand for rental housing for years to come.

It is expected that over time the Australian Build to Rent industry will become a highly desired investment product with limited availability due to its infancy. A similar trend occurred in the UK Private Rented Sector, which leads the Australian market by around five years. Since Sentinel is developing the first Build to Rent property assets in Australia, we have had the opportunity to work with the State and Local Governments to educate their members, and the general public, about the benefits of the Build to Rent sector.
