Get Living

Get Living manages over 3,000 houses throughout London and Manchester, making it the UK’s largest and most experienced build-to-rent company. Its most well-known project is East Village, the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village in Stratford, which opened in 2013 to shake-up the private rental sector and give a better way to rent. Their neighbourhoods are meant to make life in your favorite city easy, from 24/7 security to supermarkets, gyms, and free events.
