Better Homes and Vibrant Communities

We serve as responsible owner-operators on behalf of those who entrust us with their capital.


Preserving Affordable Housing

In our Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) portfolio, we intend to extend affordability beyond when government programs expire, ensuring thousands of homes remain affordable.

No Resident Evicted for Non-Payment for Two Years During Pandemic

We have been leaders in protecting residents. During the pandemic, Blackstone recognized that many were experiencing extreme hardship and chose not to make a single eviction for non-payment across our U.S. rental housing portfolio for two years.

Adding to the New Supply of Housing

Blackstone aims to be part of the solution to the imbalance between supply and demand for housing. We add to the supply of high-quality, professionally managed rental housing with single-family, multifamily and manufactured homes, and are working to develop new housing stock in the communities where people want to live.

What’s Behind the Housing Shortage?

Global Supply Challenges

The undersupply of housing is a global issue. Housing prices are rising due to a significant supply and demand imbalance that has persisted for more than a decade. New housing construction has declined significantly in the U.S., Spain and England over the last 15 years.5

Blackstone in Context

While we own less than 1% of the single-family rental stock in the U.S. and every market across the U.K. and Europe where we operate,6 Blackstone still looks to set the standard. We have spent billions of dollars through both our equity investments and lending activities to make existing communities better places to live while adding to the supply of housing. We are committed to being part of the solution in the U.S. and Europe.

Making Our Communities Greener

We’re proud of StuyTown’s efforts to move toward a lower-carbon future – including installing nearly 10K solar panels & reducing onsite greenhouse gas emissions by 15% since 2007.

Community Initiatives


CoreGiving, a 501c3 organization, was created in 2016 to fight child hunger in those communities where Blackstone Real Estate owns and operates real estate. Founded by ShopCore Properties, CoreGiving has expanded to include six other Blackstone Real Estate portfolio companies, including Beam Living in New York.

CoreGiving held its first annual CoreGiving Day in 2021, in which Blackstone and 11 of its real estate portfolio companies joined food banks at locations across the country to provide meals to those in need. Launched in 2016, CoreGiving has donated more than 10 million meals in an effort to fight child hunger.

StuyTown Pantry and Good Neighbor Program

StuyTown management and employees created a full-service food pantry with City Harvest to address hunger in the surrounding community during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pantry delivered more than one million pounds of groceries to those most in need. Blackstone employees also raised over $1.5 million to support City Harvest’s mission to ensure food security citywide.

Through the “Team Good Neighbor” program, nearly 1,500 community residents volunteered to assist their fellow at-risk neighbors by running errands and assembling and delivering thousands of “care bags” filled with groceries, sanitizer, masks and gloves.

Habitat for Humanity

In London, we partnered with Habitat for Humanity Great Britain to deliver social housing through its Empty Spaces project, which converts empty commercial spaces into affordable homes for vulnerable groups facing homelessness.

In addition to providing funds that will help sustain such vital projects, Blackstone will share its expertise and deep sector knowledge in affordable housing. Blackstone employees will also volunteer on the redevelopment site, as it committed to raise £125,000 through November 2022 to the initiative in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.

Behind the Scenes of StuyTown Pantry

Take an inside look at the collaboration between Blackstone, StuyTown and City Harvest to create StuyTown Pantry, which was formed at the height of the COVID-19 crisis in new York City in 2020 to help address hunger in lower Manhattan.

While Blackstone believes ESG factors can enhance long-term value, Blackstone does not pursue an ESG-based investment strategy or limit its investments to those that meet specific ESG criteria or standards, except with respect to products or strategies that are explicitly designated as doing so in their offering documents or other applicable governing documents. Any such considerations do not qualify Blackstone’s objectives to maximize risk-adjusted returns.
