Completed Buy-to-Let Apartments in Sheffield City Centre. A spectacular 17-storey curved glass tower overlooking the River Don in the heart of Sheffield City Centre, consisting of a stunning collection of 123 superbly designed high-specification apartments within a vibrant new retail and leisure quarter, with riverside restaurants, bars and outdoor terraces.
It’s a contemporary collection of riverside apartments in a landmark building in the Central Riverside Regeneration district. The striking glass-clad development enjoys a fabulous location close to the city centre amenities, as well as the relaxed living pace amongst the revitalized industrial quarters, rivers, and canals of Sheffield.
Sheffield, the ‘City of Steel’ is in the eastern foothills of the Pennines and the valleys of the River Don with its four tributaries: the Loxley, the Porter Brook, the Rivelin and the Sheaf. Sixty-one per cent of Sheffield's entire area is green space and a third of the city lies within the Peak District National Park, the only city in the world to lie within a National Park boundary. There are more than 250 parks, woodlands and gardens in the city, which is estimated to contain around 4.5 million trees. The city is 29 miles (47 km) south of Leeds, 32 miles (51 km) east of Manchester, and 33 miles (53 km) north of Nottingham.
Sheffield played a crucial role in the Industrial Revolution, with many significant inventions and technologies having developed in the city. In the 19th century, the city saw a huge expansion of its traditional cutlery trade, when stainless steel and crucible steel were developed locally, fuelling an almost tenfold increase in the population. The city then became part of the county of South Yorkshire; this has been made up of separately-governed unitary authorities since 1986. The 21st century has seen extensive redevelopment in Sheffield. Sheffield's gross value added (GVA) has increased by 60% since 1997, standing at £11.3 billion in 2015. The economy has experienced steady growth, averaging around 5% annually, which is greater than that of the broader region of Yorkshire and the Humber.

A residential development, completed in February 2022. It is the result of an ambitious scheme that has converted an existing commercial property into a modern mix of 79, one-and-two-bedroom apartments.
The development is set in a quiet and leafy residential district in Bagshot. It lies just 300m from the A322, and less than 900m from the nearest junction of the M3. This makes it an exceptionally convenient base for commuters: central London is less than 45km to the east, and many other employment hotspots are considerably closer still, namely Reading and Bracknell that house major corporations and large industrial estates.
Like many districts of Britain, Bagshot is characterised by an insufficient supply of good, modern homes, which means that local rental demand is robust and reliable. The property is already over 75% tenanted and the developer will take responsibility for ensuring full occupancy. Consequently, as the newest and most striking development in the area, it promises low risk, dependable yields and excellent potential for continuing capital growth.
