KTGY’s award-winning build-to-rent designs offer flexible living arrangements for a variety of lifestyles. As a refreshing paradigm for rental products, dedicated build-to-rent homes are more popular than ever. Our approach to these communities facilitate efficient management and maintenance and provide the tenant with a more detached living experience. With the recent boom in rental stock and rising land costs, people are not only staying in the rental market longer but also choosing to return to it even after owning. KTGY’s architects, designers and planners have stayed ahead of the curve by creating exceptional build-to-rent communities catered to specific regions and demographics.
KTGY’s build-to-rent designs are at the intersection of privacy, community and density. What makes them unique is our commitment to inventive floorplans that complement careful placement of housing groups within the larger development or neighborhood. Many homes incorporate private open space, with living areas oriented to yards and gardens. Other units are grouped around common outdoor space with greatrooms and porches that inspire a range of social interactions. Amenities draw people to this way of living, and our neighborhoods are woven around trails, parks, open space or hardscapes. Attention to aesthetic detail is not lost, and these home designs stand out for their attractive facades and responsive massing. Careful placement of homes and intentional community design makes it easy for tenants to form a personal connection to one another as well as their new home.
Our designers and planners use the density of build-to-rent developments as an advantage. Creative footprints lead to developments that feel more personal and alive. Flexible parking makes accessing the homes a safe, convenient and pleasant experience. In several of these communities, front doors open to green space instead of a street. The flexibility of build-to-rent also means that cottage courts and bungalows can be paired with more traditional single-family homes in the same development. KTGY understands the challenges and opportunities facing tenants and for-rent developers; our award-winning build-to-rent communities encompass a range of entry and exit points for people and families in distinct stages of their lives.
Blackwood GrovesBlackwood Groves is a new and unique mixed-use community located just south of Montana State University and downtown Bozeman, Montana. With a desire to create a community that sits distinctly apart from other new master-planned communities, Bridger Land Group partnered with KTGY to plan and design a mix of for-rent and for-sale housing that meets the diverse needs of Montanans. The master plan, created by others, established neighborhood groupings that fan out around the “village square”
DellroseThe build-to-rent neighborhood in the Dellrose master planned community is an example of excellence born of innovation.
