Rethinking how we live.
We’ve been inspired to look at renting with fresh eyes, unconstrained by traditional thinking and receptive to new ideas to solve the housing crisis. We have taken the viewpoint of the people who live and work in our buildings to identify a financial model that works for everyone, builds trust and creates truly sustainable communities.
Most developers are driven by short-term thinking resulting in buildings designed to meet the needs of investors rather than people. We are not here to sell and run. As a team, we have over 100 years of experience of residential development behind us and we are united by our shared purpose of 'Making Living Better'.
This means taking the long-term perspective in everything we do and placing the wellbeing of our residents at the core of our business model. Instead of seeing renting as a temporary solution we aspire to create places that many of our residents and members will never want to leave.
The Joy of Belonging
We encourage our residents to treat our buildings as ‘their home’ - to personalise their private spaces with their taste in decoration and welcome those with pets and children. We also offer long term tenancies that provide genuine security of tenure, rewarding residents who care and contribute most within the community.
Our homes and places will provide:
a mix of homes for between one and four residents rather than ever smaller and inefficient studio and one bed ‘units’;
a rent that is affordable on median London earnings, with up to 35% of homes affordable for those earning less;
long-term, secure tenancies;
homes that tenants treat and think of as their own;
a welcoming on-site presence to help build a sense of community;
space for working as well as play;
places for socialising and relaxing with neighbours;
conveniently located, modern, environmentally friendly and well-designed buildings;
mental and physical wellbeing;
a diverse community of all ages and backgrounds that has chosen to make ALIVE PLACES their home.
We want to show that renting can be more than just an economic necessity. Renting can become the optimal choice for savvy Londoners searching for the best value for money option.
