Share

Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC (Greystar) is joining Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments) and Cyrela Brazil Realty (Cyrela) in a joint venture that will develop, own and operate purpose-built multifamily rental housing in São Paulo.

The platform and partnership first created by CPP Investments and Cyrela, which was announced in November 2019, has now expanded to include Greystar, the global leader in rental housing. Together, the joint venture partners will develop a portfolio of world-class rental housing assets across São Paulo’s most desirable, walkable and well-connected neighborhoods. Each community will have distinctive design elements and exceptional amenities, appealing to a variety of tenants who seek convenience, comfort, security and an active urban lifestyle.

The joint venture continues to target an investment of up to R$1 billion in combined equity. CPP Investments will maintain majority interest in the joint venture, Cyrela will also own a significant interest and Greystar will acquire an ownership interest through the expansion of the partnership.

Four development projects located on premium sites in São Paulo were initially identified as assets to seed the joint venture, with three already secured by the platform. This gives CPP Investments, Greystar and Cyrela’s partnership immediate scale in the market and accounts for approximately 40% of the joint venture’s target equity allocation.

“São Paulo is one of the most dynamic and densely populated markets in the world with a significant institutional investor presence that is attracted to the multifamily asset class because of its relative stability, compelling risk-return profile, and demographic tailwinds. We see tremendous opportunity in Brazil, where the existing for-rent housing options lack the efficiency and sense of community that are hallmarks of Greystar,” says Bob Faith, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Greystar. “We’re proud to be working alongside best-in-class partners that have a demonstrated track record of success in the local market, and we are excited to leverage our sector expertise and global experience to offer renters a hassle-free lifestyle. Together we will redefine the rental experience for South America’s largest population.”

This partnership is unique in being one of the first institutionally owned and operated multifamily real estate investment platforms in Brazil, which is experiencing a confluence of consumer behavior and demographic trends, as well as structurally lower interest rates, that will continue to make this an attractive investment in Brazil over the coming years.

“CPP Investments sees increasing demand in the rental multifamily sector in Brazil, which will particularly benefit developers of modern, high-quality residential space,” says Hilary Spann, Managing Director, Head of Real Estate Americas, CPP Investments. “We are pleased to join our partners Cyrela and Greystar in building a best-in-class portfolio in Brazil.”

Greystar will manage the properties acquired through the joint venture along with contributing to the design process, with Cyrela developing and building the assets.
