Salford Quays is conveniently located for one of Europe’s largest employment and business hubs – Trafford Park – where over 40,000 people are employed. Salford itself is set to grow significantly in the coming years, with population growth expected to be higher than Greater Manchester, the Northwest and national averages up to 2025.

According to Halifax, Salford was the biggest property hotspot of 2015, with the number of property sales jumping by 23% compared to the previous year.
A major infrastructure boost benefiting the area has recently been announced with the Government giving the green light to a new £350 million Metrolink line, providing a direct link to the Trafford Centre, a popular shopping destination. The route, with six new stops, will run from the existing Pomona station and is part of a £1.5 billion expansion programme that will see the Metrolink network double in size.

A great place to live & invest
The city of Bristol is the capital of the southwest region, a really exciting place to live. The Sunday Times named it as the best city in Britain in which to live in 2014 and 2017.
Whilst it has a strong maritime history based around its ports, it has also developed a thriving service sector, and is one of the largest employment centres for banking, finance and insurance outside of London.
The city has seen huge investment over the years, with the development of a £500 million shopping centre, Cabot Circus, and the Bristol Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone, which is a hub for creative, high-tech and low-carbon industries. Aerospace, defence and media industries also play a major role in Bristol’s booming economy, with many employees originating from Bristol’s prestigious universities.
The result of all this investment is that Bristol has seen higher rates of economic growth and lower rates of unemployment than in any of the other main UK Cities. It prides itself on its green, sustainable approach has been recognised with Bristol being awarded European Green Capital status.
There are two prestigious universities within Bristol, the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England, and between them they have 51,000 full time students. Currently, the universities only provide accommodation for approximately 7,000 students, therefore there is considerable demand for private student accommodation, making this development an appealing investment opportunity
Over the years Bristol has seen a consistent demand for student accommodation, and this demand is only set to increase with the University’s expansion programme and the prevalent regeneration within the outlying parts of the city.

As the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution Manchester has played a central role in the UK economic structure and the advance of the global economy, and continues to do so. The metropolitan borough of Manchester as an estimated population exceeding 2.6 million, and is the UK’s second most populous urban area.
Since 2011 Manchester has been the fastest growing major city in the UK and remains the second most visited city in the country. Removed from London, it has the largest economy in the UK and is regarded as the key financial influence in the North of England.
Featuring 65 of the FSTE 100 companies, Manchester has one of the UK’s largest and diverse economies, with its 1.2 million workers contributing over £46 Billion to the economy annually. It is now an economic centre for cultural industries, real estate, financial services, legal expertise, manufacturing and the media, as represented by the BBC’s relocation to the £650m Media City in the heart of Salford.
On the property front, house prices in England’s northwest are set to rise 18.1% until 2021, property advisor JLL has revealed in a recently published research paper. This data comes after a great year for Mancunian residential property as it has already experienced a growth of 16% in capital values in 2016.
The area’s imbalance between supply and demand is one of the main reasons why the growth rate in the northwest is currently outpacing the rest of the UK. And JLL predicts that, as a result of this continuing under supply, both rents and capital values will continue to increase drastically over the coming years.
Capital value in Manchester is expected to grow by 28.2% over the next five years whilst rental prices are forecast to increase by 20.5% over the same period. (JLL February 2017).

There are around 90,000 people in the North West of England currently living with dementia, with more than 29,500 of those in Greater Manchester. More than 3,000 people have been diagnosed with dementia in the past year in Greater Manchester.
A recent report suggests that Greater Manchester will witness an 85% increase in the number of people diagnosed with some form of dementia by 2036.

MANCHESTER – STRONGEST HOUSE PRICE GROWTH
Nationwide recently named Manchester as the UK city with the strongest house price growth in 2013 with values up 21% in one year. Manchester outperformed all other cities and the national average of 8.4%. Thanks to a large student and working population, Manchester now ranks as the no 1 location for rental yields by HSBC.
Manchester’s growing attraction to investors is driven by its economic performance, growing population and position at the centre of the UK Chancellor’s GBP7 billion ‘Northern Powerhouse’, but most important of all is the value investors can find in the city.
Property prices in Manchester remain 13.6% below their pre-recession peak, and conservative forecasts put price growth to 2019 at 20%. Meanwhile the city’s thriving lettings market has been recognised by HSBC as one of the UK’s top ten buy-to-let hotspots, recording the highest yields in the UK between 2010 and 2015 at 6.02% per annum. The average apartment in Manchester is just over a third of the price of an equivalent property in central London.
Transportation in Manchester is a breeze. Trams, buses, trains and cabs easily link the city centre to Greater Manchester including Northern Manchester and Salford Quays, where MediaCityUK is located. Meanwhile, infrastructure projects such as the HS2, a high-speed railway link between Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds; and the One North rail project will boost the city’s accessibility. Further investment in Manchester Airport – the biggest development in the UK outside of London – will also increase the city’s connectivity with international markets.
