Get Living launches new rental homes in Elephant and Castle

Pioneer of UK ‘Build to Rent’ opens its second London location. Get Living abolished deposit-taking at the former Athletes’ Village and will not take security deposits at Elephant and Castle

The UK's leading owner operator of private rental homes, Get Living, has today announced its second location in Elephant and Castle. These 374 new high quality one, two and three bedroom homes on Elephant Road are within three buildings appropriately named after three UK castles; Raglan, Tantallon and Mawes – all of which will be available to rent directly from Get Living.

Available to move in to from September 2017 the new one, two and three bedroom homes are priced from £410 per week with the choice of three ‘collections’; Signature, Design and Premium. The Zone One homes are served by fantastic public transport links, including two Tube lines, National Rail train services, a bus hub and cycle routes.

The 1.25 acre site on Elephant Road is complemented by Castle Square, a new public space hosting a weekly market and the gateway to Elephant Park. Retail space will also include Gymbox and five new restaurants.

In recognition of Elephant and Castle’s creative identity, the new residential buildings will celebrate the area’s talent by showcasing the work of local artists in the entrance lobbies with three newly commissioned pieces of local artwork.

These new homes also benefit from the rich culture and spirit of the area and its proximity to Artworks Elephant - the new creative hub for start-ups, which features cafés, bars, a barber, art gallery and yoga studio. The South Bank, Borough Market and Bermondsey are also all within walking distance.

Residents will benefit from Get Living’s award-winning and revolutionary approach to renting that it is already offers to more than 3,000 renters at East Village, the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village. Get Living no longer requires a security deposit, doesn’t charge fees and offers longer three year tenancies, with a resident-only break clause, to give security combined with flexibility. To make life as stress-free as possible, each resident will also receive free 20Mbps broadband, 24/7 access to self-service parcel delivery lockers and Get Living management on site seven days a week. Get Living’s Elephant and Castle residents will also enjoy access to a Residents Club Room and garden terrace.

Neil Young, CEO of Get Living, said: “We are excited to share news of our expansion to Elephant and Castle, our second location. Building and nurturing vibrant communities of renters is at the heart of everything we do at Get Living, and we will bring the very same values that we have successfully held at East Village to this fantastic zone one location. We look forward to bringing our trusted, hands-on landlord service to Elephant and Castle.

“2017 has been a significant year for Get Living; we have scrapped deposits, acquired sites in Glasgow and Leeds and launched our second location at Elephant and Castle. We now have more than 6,000 homes under management or in the pipeline across the UK and, as we continue to grow, we remain focused on revolutionising the UK rental experience.”
