Native Residential is to operate the 598 Build-to-Rent homes at Reading’s Station Hill.

Developer Lincoln MGT has announced the appointment along with the name of the two buildings which will be known as Ebb&Flow which relates to Reading’s two rivers.

The scheme consists of one, two and three bedroom flats, the first of which will be ready for occupation this Summer.

Alex Aitchison, UK managing director for Lincoln Property Company, said: “We are delighted to welcome Native Residential as our local Build-to-Rent operating partner to ensure the vision for Station Hill becomes a reality.

“Ebb&Flow is a unique living proposition at a time when there is a surge in housing demand matched with a significant undersupply of professionally managed homes with a wide variety of amenities.

“This scheme fits in well with the wider Station Hill placemaking and the mix of uses is now coming alive. We look forward to growing the community for generations to come.”

Alec Newton, director of origination for Native Residential, said: “It’s incredibly exciting to be appointed on the first phase of Station Hill. We look forward to working closely with the LPC and MGT teams to ensure the success of this major new BTR destination.

“Native’s appointment recognises our track record in operating best-in-class living assets of scale in prominent urban locations where we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional service, consistent performance and comprehensive reporting for our clients.

“The Native team will ensure the creation of this new sustainable mixed-use community in the heart of Reading which has been designed, and will be operated for performance over the long-term.”
