Annex Student Living Founder Recognized as Emerging Leader in Multifamily Housing Industry

Kyle Bach, CEO of Indianapolis-based student housing development firm Annex Student Living has been named an Emerging Multifamily Leader. The following feature appears in the September issue of Real Estate Forum magazine:

Of all the property sectors in commercial real estate, multifamily has arguably had one of the best runs, and the professionals who operate in the business have gone along for the ride. For some players – particularly newer entrants to the business – the apartment segment’s success has provided opportunities to exhibit their own skills and accomplishments. Real Estate Forum tapped the CRE community to find talented young professionals in the multifamily business, and pulled the winning individuals from a pool of nearly 200 industry standouts.

While working for a few other real estate development firms out of college, Kyle Bach saw a huge need and opportunity for affordable student housing in regional collegiate communities. So he struck out on his own using personal savings of $200,000 to start his first company. Bach has quickly become a highly respected presence in the multifamily housing and commercial real estate industries in the Midwest.

At Annex, Bach nurtures relationships with colleges, universities, municipalities, investors and other business partners and leads the team responsible for maintaining those partnerships. He consistently reassesses the firm’s strategic direction to find new business opportunities. For instance, today, Annex focuses on developing off-campus communities, but is expanding to include mixed-used developments.
