Greystar grows development team
Global real estate company Greystar has appointed David Rothwell as development manager, a newly created position within the multifamily and student development team.

Rothwell joins from Aspire DM where he was a development manager, and was previously at CBRE for nearly a decade.

Previously a chartered surveyor, Rothwell has been involved in a number of mixed-use residential schemes in London and the South East.

According to Greystar, Rothwell will be responsible for helping the company acquire 10,000 apartments to its rental portfolio over the next four years. He will report to the development director Michela Hancock.

Hancock said: “David Rothwell is a great addition to the team and he brings a wealth of residential experience to Greystar. His passion for placemaking, efficient design and commitment to creating sustainable communities will be an incredible asset to the business as we embark on a significant programme of investment in rental housing."

Rothwell commented: “This is an exciting time to be joining Greystar and working on the UK’s first multifamily housing developments. It is an amazing opportunity to be involved in the design and delivery of rental communities at a scale not currently seen in the UK, with world class services and amenities.”
