Regeneration

Liverpool’s regeneration work has focused on honouring the city’s industrial and shipping past while creating vibrant new urban districts. Liverpool Waters is one of its biggest regeneration successes, along with the superb Albert Dock area. New schools and university buildings have accompanied the regeneration, building a bright future for those living in the city.

Transport

The transport infrastructure within Manchester is excellent, with decent links between the city centre and outlying areas. This means that Blackley (for example), to the north east of the city and just five miles from the M60, can be reached by just a short bus ride from the city centre.

Neighbourhood

Any property investment company that knows Liverpool well will focus on the areas around the city’s two key regeneration projects: Ten Streets and Project Jennifer. Property investment UK opportunities in those two areas are particularly exciting, with Ten Streets offering a 125-acre, master-planned creativity district and Project Jennifer providing a £150 million world-class community retail and leisure destination.

Yields

Liverpool’s rents are projected to increase by 17.6% by 2022. Combined with the city’s reputation for low property prices, even in central areas, this makes for some excellent yields. Property investment opportunities in key city centre locations can thus enjoy the potential for both capital gains and healthy yields, as well as strong demand from the city’s large body of urban professional renters.
