Investment into areas such as Anfield, the Baltic Triangle, and the northern part of the waterfront has delivered huge improvements. Here are some of the other major regeneration and capital investment projects across Merseyside:

 

Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle Properties 

 

If you live in Liverpool, you know the Baltic area is the place to be on a weekend, if you don’t live in Liverpool – it’s the place you want to be!

 

This area regularly draws comparisons to Camden & Shoreditch in London. Distinctively unique with street art and an abundance of independent businesses, bars and eateries. Creativity is the heartbeat of this location which has become Liverpool’s digital hub. Home to the famous Baltic Market, which transformed the previous Cains brewery. 

 

Since 2012, the Baltic Triangle has converted old buildings into event spaces, bars, and over 1,000 apartments, with a £20 million fund for a new apartment area.

Paddington Village

 

The 30-acre Paddington Village site is a £1 billion expansion to the city centre’s Knowledge Quarter. The regeneration of this area is expected to create around 10,000 new jobs in Liverpool and is described as a similar type of area to Greenwich Village in New York. The area will include high specification accommodation, as well as state-of-the-art workspaces, hospitality and retail units.

 

Large Regeneration Of Liverpool Waters

 

If there’s one place in the UK Advantage would recommend investing in right now, it’s Liverpool’s Waterfront since it’s a low-entry venture with high potential rewards.This development is unlike any other project seen in Liverpool, and in Europe for that matter, as one of Europe’s largest single regeneration projects. 

 

The city’s waterfront has received a £5.5 billion investment to completely transform the renowned docks. This investment will ensure that the northern docks will reconnect directly to the city centre for the first time in 50 years! 

 

Creating five new neighbourhoods this will double the city-centre’s waterfront. Set to be occupied with, 315,000 sqm of quality office space, 53,000 sqm of hotel and conference facilities, a new cruise liner terminal plus many more amenities including retail and leisure facilities along with extensive parking. 

 

Last but not least, this prime location will also host the new stadium of Everton FC, a first in the UK to provision a marina with floating retail units, restaurants & bars.

 

The demand for long and short-term lets housing in this regeneration area will undoubtedly increase exponentially. All of this ultimately leads to rising property prices and higher rental incomes, which is exactly what most people look for when buying an investment property. 

 

In the rental market, Liverpool is now competing with cities such as Manchester. This means that Liverpool property investors will benefit from high yields for many years to come. As many investors will appreciate timing is everything in investing, now is the time to invest in this area whilst property prices are still low.

Ground infrastructure costs £8.5m, supported by Liverpool City Council, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, and Homes England.

 

L3 Regeneration Zone
