Generation first met Hattington Capital in mid 2014 when Hattington were looking for expertise in the Purpose Built Student Accommodation market in order to evaluate potential opportunities in Dublin. Generation assisted Hattington in appraising an opportunity on Thomas Street in Dublin 8 and in assembling a professional team to deliver a new student accommodation building. The site was acquired in 2014 and the building, Highlight Thomas Street (257 beds), opened in 2018 stabilising quickly. During the construction period, Generation helped Hattington create a local operational team to operate the asset. Following on from a successfully planning consent for Highlight Thomas Street, a second site was obtained in Dublin 7 the following year. This building, Highlight Parkgate (319 beds) opened in 2019 giving Hattington and Generation an operational platform of 576 beds in Central Dublin.
