With a new year comes a new spell of excitement in the sense of the potential achievements for the year ahead. For the property market, there have been some very desirable developments emerging around the country, and they are only just for starters. To well and truly kick the new year off here is a taster of what some of the UK’s best investment cities have to offer.
Luxury In Liverpool
Liverpool has been on the investment radar for a short while now and for good reason. There is definitely something magical about this prominent city and many who visit decide to relocate there. Liverpool has generated a reputation for being a passionate and success driven city mostly due to its youthful population and promising regeneration projects. What draws young entrepreneurs and socialites to a life in Liverpool, is the magnitude of events that are held throughout the year. There is something to please everyone from sporting events, exhibitions, gigs, festivals, courses, outdoor activities, and a thriving nightlife.
A top ranking development in Liverpool city centre is that of the Azure Residence. These luxury apartments come with premium fitted bathrooms and kitchens and real wood floors. The communal facilities include a workspace, gym, and urban gardens a perfect match for a budding entrepreneurs lifestyle. Selected apartments have glass balconies that feature mesmerising views of the city, and all have the option of private parking.
Located in the Baltic Triangle, Parliament Square has caught the eye of many investors. The prestigious development combines high-end city living with hotel swank which makes it stand out from the crowd. Residents can enjoy an onsite spa, cinema, swimming pool, gym, bar, and restaurant. For those wanting to bring their work home, there is a Wi-Fi lounge, offices, as well as a concierge service. The spacious Parliament Square apartments have a stylish finish and boast city and river views that are presented through feature windows.
Both Parliament Square and Azure apartments are in a desirable location with fantastic transport links.
Magic Of Manchester
In recent years Manchester has blossomed in terms of career opportunities and business growth. Like Liverpool, Manchester has a fairly youthful population, making it a hotspot for training programs and courses. The Liverpool – Manchester metropolitan area ranked in the top ten of 2017’s foreign direct investment cities and has now been identified as one of 2019’s best cities to invest in. Manchester is already a highly regarded city around the world, and because of its favourable reputation, it takes little persuasion for people to understand just how great it really is. Like many major UK cities, Manchester hosts thousands of events throughout the year. There is a particularly strong theatre and arts scene in Manchester, and later on, in the year, the brand new £110m arts space at the Old Granada Studios is due to open. Students from across the globe make a beeline for Manchester due to it having one of the highest university populations in Europe and exceptional standards. It is a city with easy access to beautiful countryside’s like that of the Peak District and the Lake District, and if it’s a beach you’re after, then you can reach Blackpool in an hour.
Unsurprisingly, Manchester is one of the most sought-after cities in terms of investment. The off-plan, new build apartments of The Warehouse at the Dye Works are situated on the banks of the River Irwell in a quiet residential area within close proximity to the train station and Salford Central. These stunning high-end apartments are ideal for those looking to escape the bustling city while still having access to regular public transport routes. Beautiful penthouse suites are available with private landscaped rooftop gardens overlooking the river. Residential onsite facilities include a fully equipped gym and communal lounges. The Warehouse at the Dye Works is one of the few developments that offers a balcony, private parking, and bike storage.
Bossing It In Birmingham
To simply put it, Birmingham is booming. Over the last ten years, Birmingham has seen a population rise of 100,000 which makes it one of the UK’s fastest growing cities. The increase of citizens has resulted in a demand for property, and with the population continuing to rise, Birmingham is a great investment city for 2019. This large multicultural city prides itself on the continuing development of public transport routes along with its achievement of hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games. That alone is predicted to attract an additional 700,000 visitors on top of the current 41 million visitors a year. With the upcoming global platform, Birmingham is getting set to show off all its worth. There are metro extensions in the pipeline that are due to be complete by 2021 along with the Big City Plan which will see redevelopments in areas of Digbeth and Five Ways.
Priest House is located just 8 miles from the city in the pleasant town of Cradley Heath. This area appeals to many from career focused individuals to students and because of its commuter town title you get a lot more for your money. The Priest House apartments are elegantly designed with premium hard-wearing materials and light neutral colours. Cradley Heath has very low levels of crime and many public areas. The town offers leisure facilities along with desirable schools and provides its residents with a true community atmosphere.
Along with Liverpool, Manchester, and Birmingham, Newcastle is also on the property hotspot list for 2019 as is London. Of course, London was once the main focus when it came to investing in property, but with the average house price being four times cheaper in Manchester, its no wonder people are looking to invest elsewhere. Like last year we are seeing increasing interest in northern cities, and the more attention they gain, the more surrounding cities are upping their game. The UK’s property market is looking very exciting for the coming year, and we will be here to keep you updated with the latest development opportunities.
