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.

L1 Studios – Construction Update May 2017
Following on from previous site investigations and foundation design, May has seen installation of site infrastructure and boarding, and initial groundworks have taken place.
The existing basement that was present from the previous building has been excavated, as have the substructure pilings and foundations. The construction team will commence piling of the new foundations in June, in anticipation of the erection of the steel frame following on from that.
L1 Studios – Construction Update February 2017
The developer’s team has recently carried out a site investigation to the plot, which related to environmental searches and to assess the ground for foundation design.
Following this successful investigation, the developer has sent a team onsite to confirm the findings of the site investigation report. The onsite team has also determined the extent of the basement to the adjacent property. These trial site investigations have meant that SWF Consultants are able to finalise the foundation design for the project.
Furthermore, last week saw a design team meeting held, which was attended by the architects for the development, the structural engineer, the M & E engineers and the main contractor, Ridgemere. The purpose of the meeting was to co-ordinate all of the different elements of the building design, which are now being drawn up ahead of full construction commencing onsite in May.

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.

A Hotspot for Regeneration in Liverpool
Liverpool is currently undergoing a major transformation with a huge amount of private investment being injected into the local economy. Over the last five years, there has been a significant amount of capital investment in the city centre specifically, such as the £960 million Liverpool One shopping centre which has spurred additional regeneration throughout the rest of the city.
Land is now limited in the centre and the council has responded by creating a new housing area called Liverpool Central North where City Residence is aptly located. This hotspot zone is surrounded by numerous regeneration projects helping to shape Liverpool’s growth in the residential sector.
1. Project Jennifer is a £150 million new regeneration scheme primarily made up of an 80,000 square foot district centre and the largest Liverpool supermarket for the north city centre which is only 300 meters away from City Residence. Many aspects of this project are complete with private funding still ongoing. The new £15 million school recently completed along with the ‘Greatie’ indoor and outdoor market. A large retail park is also underway.
2. Anfield is undergoing a £260 million capital injection just 1.3km away from the City Residence townhouse development. Involving the eventual expansion of the famous Anfield Football Stadium to 60,000 supporters, a new retail element, a £10 million hotel, a boulevard with restaurants, bars and the ‘Anfield Village’ town centre, a number of new jobs will be generated alongside a demand for more residential housing in the local vicinity.
3. Liverpool Waters is being established by the same developer that brought BBC MediaCityUK and the Trafford Centre to Manchester. Peel Holdings are investing a huge £5.5 billion to create ‘Liverpool Waters’ on Liverpool’s waterfront which is the biggest regeneration scheme to grace the UK since the 2012 Olympics. This project will completely transform the docklands in Liverpool bringing Grade A commercial spaces, retail, residential apartments and leisure facilities to ultimately increase the demand for homes in the area.
City Residence benefits from being conveniently located in the middle of these three key regeneration projects providing a fantastic investment opportunity for buy to let investors looking to make high rental income and maximum capital growth.
