Knowledge Quarter – £1 Billion Investment
The Knowledge Quarter is the area Liverpool City Council is developing as an academic hub. It’s already home to the University of Liverpool, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool Hope University and Liverpool John Moores University.
This enormous project is called Paddington Village, and it will cover 30 acres behind Royal Liverpool University Hospital.
The development plans are ambitious, to say the least. There will be an array of new houses, businesses, conference space, laboratories and academic buildings, and there’s also talk of a skyscraper and a train station.
Knowledge Quarter CEO Colin Sinclair told the Liverpool Echo that thousands of new jobs could be created via Paddington Village.
‘This is a landmark, a historic moment in the future of Liverpool…When that kind of investment is being made, you can really say to any investor from around the globe that Liverpool is a city of opportunity.
It’s a steep change. We’re not dabbling around the edges here. We’re trying to create something that is lasting for the city.
Phase 1 of Paddington Village is likely to begin in 2017.

Why Invest in Student Accommodation
Student property is one of the most lucrative ways to expand your property portfolio in the UK.
Private student accommodation continues to outperform all other forms of property investment in the UK. With low entry prices, stable yields and low void periods, it’s one of the most lucrative ways to expand your portfolio. Plus, there is zero stamp duty payable up to £125,000.
Although most first-year students secure university-owned accommodation, others need to look elsewhere. This results in more than 70% of students in university towns renting privately – and they’re demanding convenient locations, quality furnishings and on-site amenities. This offers you a compelling investment opportunity.
