Vertically integrated developer of student housing in the United States – Landmark Properties – has announced its expansion into the UK and Ireland. The news comes as the company celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The strategic move builds upon a near-decade of industry-leading development volume, including record-setting 2023 performance (delivering 25% of US off-campus student housing in 2023).

Landmark Properties is assembling a seasoned UK-based team spearheaded by the recent hiring of development professional Tom Banning as Director of UK & Ireland Development.

With the UK and Ireland offering attractive opportunities for student housing development, Landmark Properties is committed to developing high-quality student accommodation schemes to the UK market, leveraging its expertise to help offset the implications of the nation-wide supply and demand imbalance and creating strong yields for its partners.

“As Landmark Properties celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, we are thrilled to announce our expansion into the European market. We see a tremendous opportunity to develop purpose-built student housing in the UK and Ireland and are confident that our expertise in developing high-quality student accommodations will be well-received.”
