One Victoria, Manchester

One Victoria, with an affordable price point starting from £277,000 and fantastically located only 3 mins walk from Manchester Victoria Station, is an ideal investment opportunity. Manchester continues to consistently offer investors some of the strongest rental yields in the UK, and major agencies like Savills and JLL in the last eight weeks have forecast a hike in prices of 20% minimum by 2028, a great return on investment within four years. Sentiment has become extremely positive over the last couple of months with interest rates forecasted to drop and prices expected to rise so if you, like us, believe that now is the time to buy, please don’t hesitate to get in touch as these apartments will sell fast. Why Victoria? The area around Great Ducie Street includes the once world-famous Boddington’s Brewery, now one of Manchester’s city centre regeneration areas. Tracing the River Irwell, traditionally it was a commercial district, now making way for more much-needed city centre accommodation. But, unlike some of Manchester’s areas of regeneration, Victoria is already a thriving part of the city, a four-minute walk from Cathedral Gardens, five minutes from Exchange Square the main shopping district and a ten-minute walk from the popular bars, restaurants and cafes of the Northern Quarter. Its public transport connections are excellent, the mainline station and Metrolink Manchester Victoria are only a three minute walk from the development and there’s easy access to the city ring road and A56. As a place to invest, you get all the benefits of a city centre address – and the extra uplift associated with Manchester’s ongoing regeneration story. In terms of its rentability it’s ideal. The affordable price point means a better margin of yields, whilst the design of the apartments lend themselves excellently to Manchester’s growing leagues of young professionals. Every bedroom has its own dedicated bathroom – be that a one, two or three-bed apartment. There’s also a 10th storey roof garden with city-wide views ticking the box for outdoor space.

About 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.
