Manchester set for further housing and infrastructure growth

Overseas Property | 16 May 2019

Manchester’s city centre housing market is booming. As a result of the city’s continued development, investment continues to pour into the Manchester property market from across Asia with international buyers viewing Manchester as a strong and safe market, which is backed by strong economic growth and employment data.

A number of key developments, especially the £800 million expansion project of the existing Manchester Airport, will greatly enhance connectivity and spur growth in the local economy and its property sector. With the expansion works under way, Manchester will follow an airport city model with the aim of stimulating the Greater Manchester economy by creating on-site logistics, manufacturing, office and leisure facilities.

Another highlight would be MediaCityUK, the vibrant heart of the UK’s media and digital industries, which is now halfway through its expansion plan.  Set for completion in 2026, the extra 7.7 hectares of land added to MediaCityUK will inject a new lease of life to the city and create a large number of job opportunities. Young professionals seeking to work and live in Manchester will require residential living close to the city centre’s wealth of job opportunities.

Alliance Investments, a leading property developer based in Manchester with a portfolio of prime commercial and residential real estate will be hosting seminars in Hong Kong on Saturday 18 May and Sunday 19 May to introduce Hong Kong buyers to the company’s residential projects in one of the UK’s fastest-growing cities.

One of the projects to be launched in Hong Kong is Uptown, a collection of premium riverside apartments situated on the banks of Manchester’s River Irwell. The development comprises of 156 one- and two-bedroom apartments, with opulent interiors and large communal and private rooftop terraces.

Uptown’s suave, geometric architectural design marries together both contemporary and industrial styles. The development comprises of three buildings that rise to different heights creating a high impact, staggered impression on the landscape. Ascending communal and private rooftop terraces mirror the form of a green river bank gradually sloping away from Manchester’s River Irwell.

Nestled within leafy surroundings by the meandering River Irwell and just a stone’s throw away from Victoria Train station, Manchester Arena and the wider city. Uptown is perfectly placed to reap what Manchester has to offer. Apartment prices start at about HK$2.3 million, with gross rental yields estimated at 6% p.a.

·  4 minutes to Victoria

·  8 minutes to Arndale Centre

·  8 minutes to Deansgate

·  13 minutes to Spinningfields
