Subtext was founded in 2014 to develop purpose-built student housing. We quickly discovered a broader need for housing that serves students and professionals whose social and emotional needs aren’t met by conventional development. Today, we develop student housing in the top university markets across the country and innovative multifamily projects in high-growth cities. We start and end every day with a focus on creating the best lived experience for our residents.

Our approach to real estate development is data-driven – from market selection to building design and operations. Bringing a hospitality mindset to development, Subtext buildings go beyond brick and mortar, with amenities and management tailored to each location.

A morning coffee lounge that becomes a bar at night. Co-working spaces and coach-led fitness classes. Regular community dinners, volunteer events and group outings. Smart units designed around efficiency and comfort, with tech that integrates into our residents’ everyday lives.

From site selection through construction, our focus on innovation and building community drives us to create better ways for people to live and connect.

Subtext develops properties that work hard to simultaneously deliver the highest value for our residents, above-market returns for our partners and vibrant spaces for our communities. That win-win-win mentality is built on fairness, consistent collaboration and repeated, programmatic partnerships with the cities and institutional investors we work with. Together is better.

We operate with transparency, letting data driving our decisions. Integrating our values into our business model, we are developing projects from New York to Oregon, building vibrant communities and lasting partnerships along the way.
