Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC (“Greystar”), a global leader in the investment, development, and management of high-quality rental housing properties, is pleased to announce the launch of LIV’N, an upscale rental housing community brand in China.  The brand is representative of cosmopolitan professionals that place an importance on modern urban lifestyles.  With LIV’N, Greystar will deliver a best-in-class community experience in top cities throughout the country, which highlights connections between people, the property and the city, putting residences at the heart of it all.


The opportunity to satisfy demands for higher quality rental communities in the China market

With strong urbanization trends in China, structural housing shortages continues as population in major cities increase. Combined with the rise of a sophisticated and affluent consumer base of mobile individuals and families seeking high quality living experiences, demand for professionally designed and institutionally managed rental housing have significantly increased. 

As a pioneer in rental housing, Greystar is committed to selecting high-quality locations in top tier cities to design, develop and operate the best purpose-built rental housing projects in China. The “LIV’N” communities will be Greystar’s effort to bring global standards and best practices to the market while localizing to the needs of residents. As part of the company’s mission, Greystar is not only committed to bring to the China market institutional quality product and management but will continue to push the envelope and innovate in design, technology and services to impress residents with an unparalleled living experience.

Living in the city, LIV’N at "The Heart of It All"

At LIV’N, residents come first and are placed at the center of what truly matters in cosmopolitan living – well-appointed spaces, a vibrant community and unbridled access to the pulse of the city. As the tagline, "The Heart of It All" suggests, LIV’N is designed to afford residents with an intimate connection to their surroundings, which they will find in the comforts of their apartment and abundant amenities, the diverse cultural mix of residents, or the dynamism of the city that’s just at their doorstep. It also conveys to city newcomers that everything they need and want is well within reach. As a living space that offers seamless access to a mix of experiences, LIV’N is lifestyle to be desired.

Above all, the thoughtful nature of 833’s design puts residents’ varied needs at the forefront.

At LIV’N 833, friendly concierge is always at hand to offer their assistance and available to help residents at the public areas.
