Liverpool – The Knowledge Quarter

Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter is currently undergoing a £2 Billion masterplan to create a city centre gateway, linking Lime Street Station to the city’s main concentration of science, health, education and the cultural assets, including the cities two iconic cathedrals.

The plans include a 1.8 million sq. ft. medical hub, Grade A office space, alongside the 30-acre Paddington Village site which will create a world leading innovation district. These exciting advancements proved a huge factor in the decision made by The Royal College of Physicians to choose Liverpool over Manchester & Leeds to be the home of their Northern Headquarters. The RCP have already agreed on a site for their new 70,000 sq. ft. 15 storey facility which is due to complete in 2020.

Liverpool Knowledge Quarter Investment

Our current main investment opportunities in the Knowledge Quarter come in the student accommodation sector, the UK’s top performing asset class.

Why Invest in the Student Market?

In addition to being the best performing UK asset class, the UK’s market has room to grow further, with only 24% of students being housed in purpose-built accommodation. Globally mobile students are underpinning the demand for purpose-built student housing and there has been £3.1 billion invested in the sector in 2016 alone. Key workers are also an essential factor contributing to the potential of this development in particular, the location lends itself to those working within the extensive medical and educational facilities surrounding.

Liverpool Waters

Extending northwards from Liverpool’s Commercial Business District, home to the fastest growing regional economy outside of London, Liverpool Waters will see 60 hectares of historic dockland regenerated to create a £5.5 billion world-class, high quality, mixed use development.

This stunning waterfront location will provide over 1.5 million square metres of floor space, attracting national and international attention, and encourage a significant increase in Liverpool’s cultural and business offering. Together with Wirral Waters, the planned £5 billion development across the river, Merseyside will benefit from a combined £10 billion of investment making it the largest development project in the UK.

Water front Liverpool CGI

Liverpool is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, with more museums and galleries than anywhere outside of London. It’s home to nearly half a million residents, and is now benefiting from the 2nd round of economic investment from the UK Government’s Northern Powerhouse Scheme, deeming it as a significant investment location in the UK.

With severe housing shortages in the city centre and a rapidly growing population, Liverpool presents the perfect investment landscape and was labelled by ‘Totally Money 2017’ as the hottest UK location for buy to let property.

The city’s rich artistic history, marine port and its two premier league football teams are the first affiliations people often make with the city, unaware of the major evolution and transformation the city has experienced over the last 100 years to become the economic, cultural and educational hub it is today.
