How We Work

Every project the Greystar Development and Construction team takes on is guided by a commitment to excellence, a belief in hands-on management, and an understanding of how what we build influences cities.

By harnessing the power of our vertically integrated global platform and our highly experienced team of experts, the projects we deliver shape the skyline of cities and are the feel of those communities for years to come. And it all happens because of how we work.

Why Greystar Development?

Our approach gives us a distinct advantage:

A continuous feedback loop

Our multifamily roots have cultivated a “focus on the resident” approach to all we do. On every project, we start with who will occupy the space and how they will utilize it. We then layer in the insights of our operations teams to ensure we have well-conceived common areas and leasable areas with an eye towards a timeless design, durable finishes, and efficient building systems.

Our vertically integrated business model spanning property management, investment management, and development and construction creates a network of teams across the country that have valuable local relationships to guide projects forward.

A range of products

Greystar’s development platform spans conventional apartments ranging from garden style to high-rise, student housing, 55+, single family rental, and mixed use projects such as hospitality, retail, office, life science, and logistics.

Impeccable Oversight

Guided by our in-house general contractors, every project includes open communication, a focus on quality, and commitment to every detail. We always operate as one team, and this is felt through each of our projects.

Access to institutional capital

Financing is the lifeblood of our development business. With Greystar, you’ll find a sophisticated and innovative real estate partner who understands the increasingly complex capital structures under which we operate. Our proven track record has yielded strong relationships with many valued lenders and institutional investors.
