Balfour Beatty Communities Recognized as Top 50 Owners and Managers by the National Multifamily Housing Council

MALVERN, PA --- May 15, 2023 --- Balfour Beatty Communities, a national residential real estate investment and management company, once again earned recognition by the National Multifamily Housing Council’s (NMHC) 2023 NMHC 50, the annual ranking of the nation’s largest apartment owners, managers, developers, builders, and syndicators. Balfour Beatty Communities is the 22nd largest apartment owner and 34th largest apartment manager with more than 46,000 units owned and managed across the United States.

“We are honored to be named one of the country's top multifamily housing owners and managers,” said Chris Williams, president of Balfour Beatty Communities. “This recognition reflects the tireless efforts of our employees, who continue to propel the company forward by putting the needs of our residents first and delivering exceptional services.”

For over 20 years, Balfour Beatty Communities has partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) to revitalize, operate, and maintain on-base military family housing. Today, Balfour Beatty Communities is one of the largest MHPI developers, responsible for family housing at 55 Army, Navy and Air Force installations and portfolios in both the student housing and conventional multifamily sectors across the U.S.

This year marks the 34th edition of the NMHC Top 50 lists. NMHC partners with Kingsley Associates, a leading real estate research and consulting firm for the NMHC 50’s research and analysis. All apartment owners, managers, developers, builders, and syndicators are invited to answer a survey questionnaire that asks about their prior year activities. Apartment owners, managers and syndicators are ranked based on their portfolio holdings (either owned or managed) as of January 1, 2023, while developers and builders are ranked based on the number of units started in 2022.
