PRS / Build-to-Rent

Since marketing the first apartment blocks off-plan in the 1970s, Hooke & MacDonald has been an innovator in the industry. Our latest contribution has been to promote and market multi-family and build-to-rent projects as one solution to the shortage of rental stock in Dublin and other cities.

We have carried out in-depth analysis of the international build-to-rent sector, examining design, operations, funding and investment and visiting development projects in the UK, Europe and the US.

Hooke & MacDonald’s multi-family experience is complemented by our property management division, which manages over 1,500 units, mostly in Dublin, for domestic and international clients. 

The private residential sector is currently the most vibrant part of the Irish investment market and has considerable potential for sustained growth over the next five years, underpinned by strong demand from Irish and international investors for product, shortage of supply, a rising population and a positive economic outlook.
