First build-to-rent development in Hayes celebrates its 1st anniversary

February marks the 1st anniversary of the opening of the rental development be:here Hayes delivered by BTR developer Be at the former EMI record label building – now named the Gatefold Building –  in West London.

Located In the heart of Hayes, be:here Hayes is a brand new development of high-quality homes with private gardens and outstanding communal spaces which opened its doors to the first residents on 1st February 2017.

It is part of the wider £250 million regeneration project of Old Vinyl Factory by U+I, which is expected to deliver 4,000 jobs, 642 homes, 750,000 ft² of commercial and leisure space, all by 2020.

The development has proven its success, having won two industry awards – Silver in Best-Build-To-Rent Project category at the What House? awards and Best build to rent development in the Inside Housing Development Awards 2017.

Since its opening, pioneering build to rent developer Be has announced that it is moving to a no fees model for its be:here Hayes development.

Due to its proximity to Hayes and Harlington station, quality design and finish, on-site team, not to mention pet-friendly homes, the apartments are targetted at young professional renters as well as families and older adults as an affordable London rental offering.

Hayley Wills, area manager at be:here Hayes, said:

“The Gatefold Building is one of the first genuine developments in London that has been designed especially for renters so it is no surprise to see how popular be:here Hayes has been since opening. Residents are happy to see good value for the money and demand has been so strong that we have very few apartments left.”
