Industry Dive launches Multifamily Dive

Multifamily Dive

Industry Dive launches Multifamily Dive today, the latest addition to its business journalism portfolio. With apartment construction at a 30-year high, Multifamily Dive will deliver breaking news, data analysis, and insights to company executives, developers, and regulators at the center of the economic and demographic changes reshaping communities.

Multifamily Dive marks the latest in Industry Dive’s strategic expansion. As the 26th publication - and an entirely new industry to cover - the new newsletter and website joins the trusted resources 20+ other industries already depend on for the latest information.

“Multifamily Dive will examine the entire ecosystem of multifamily housing, from the initial investment to construction to property management and all the steps in between,” said Industry Dive Editor-in-Chief Davide Savenije. “With rising inflation, materials shortages, labor issues, and many billions of dollars in sales and deals at stake, executives need to stay informed on how multifamily housing is changing today and where it's going tomorrow. What we see happening in this market creates the right opportunity for us to build up a trusted and indispensable source of information and insight for our readers.”

Multifamily Dive’s coverage will be led by Les Shaver, who has been covering the sector for almost 25 years and has unparalleled access to the industry’s top decision-makers, investors and policy-makers.

The first-week’s stories, for example, will cover everything from executive transitions and price bubbles to technology trends.

“I like to identify trends before they happen,” Shaver said. “While it is always important to cover the news and tell our readers what’s happening now, we also want to be proactive in reporting what’s next.”

Multifamily Dive Managing Editor Noelle Knox points out that decisions made by these industry leaders not only shape investment portfolios but also neighborhoods and day-to-day living for about 130 million renters nationwide.

“Renting an apartment is an almost essential stage for the majority of families, for some a preferred way of life, and for others the only option,” Knox said. “Multifamily living spans college dormitories to assisted-living for the elderly –  and the public policy and investment implications are vast.”

Readers can sign up for a free subscription to receive the new newsletter each weekday and a special Saturday round-up edition. Articles in the newsletter also will be posted at

About Industry Dive

Industry Dive has redefined business-to-business media with its goal to spark ideas and shape agendas. The company identifies and carefully curates audiences of business leaders and decision-makers. Since 2012, Industry Dive has modernized how industries follow the news, develop marketing plans and implement communications strategies.

Rooted in a commitment to high-quality journalism, Industry Dive's 100-person newsroom covers industry-centric news across 26 publications - most known as “Dives.” Reporters dive into news that touches 23 different markets and nearly every department within a company. Daily newsletters hit email inboxes every weekday with updates, articles, and analysis and the weekly newsletters drill down into even more specific topics. Each Dive has evolved into an industry information resource with searchable archives of news stories, outside opinion essays, continuously updated trackers, recommended readings, event listings as well client-sponsored announcements and learning opportunities.

This consistent flow of credible information engages audiences who keep coming back. Based on what the newsroom learns through its close examination of the industries, a separate team works with marketers, public relations professionals, and advertisers to leverage this editorial insight and audience distribution channels. This creates the right opportunities for businesses to get their products and services in front of those who need them most.

Taking the journalistic approach to storytelling even further, studioID, Industry Dive’s global content studio, works with clients to nurture prospects and customers from discovery through purchase, connecting brand-to-demand. A team of content writers and strategists guide brands in 30 countries and in 30 languages to tell the stories that matter to their audiences - and in return - build strong relationships, earn trust, and generate demand.

Founded as a bootstrapped start-up in Washington, DC, by Sean Griffey, Eli Dickinson and Ryan Willumson, Industry Dive launched into its first five industries: Construction, Education, Marketing, Utility and Waste in 2012. In September 2019, private equity firm Falfurrias Capital Partners acquired a majority equity interest in the company. In 2020, the company acquired the content marketing team and services under the company formerly known as NewsCred to launch studioID, and has since completed four other acquisitions. The company has a new headquarters office in Washington, DC with additional locations in New York, London, and Dhaka, Bangladesh.
