Coming Soon to Leeds - 110 one to three bedroom apartments. Located in the Knowledge Quarter of Leeds, close to universities and the region's top employers in the Financial District. Gross yields at Alexandra Park Apartments are expected to be strong at 7%, and the project is being offered with an unbeatable payment plan with just 10% required on exchange and the remainder on completion.
Due to the strategic positioning of Alexandra Park Apartments, the development is expected to appeal to a mixed demographic of tenants. Investors can rest assured there will be no shortfall of tenant demand.
The city is booming. Leeds population is expected to grow to 819,000 by 2024, driving rental demand in the region. With only 60,000 new homes in the pipeline – far short of the required 90,000 by 2021 – the Leeds housing market will certainly benefit. Over the next 5 years house prices are forecasted to have increased by 19.9% and rental prices by 18.8%. In 2018 the Leeds property market was estimated to be worth £59 billion, which is only expected to improve.
With 119,000 businesses in the Leeds region it is the largest centre for financial and business services outside of the capital, attracting large numbers of professionals to the city. It is home to a £1 billion tech centre, earning Leeds the name of ‘digital capital of the North’. There are nine universities in Leeds producing almost 40,000 graduates each year.
At any one time there are 60,000 students in Leeds, including 9,000 international students from over 170 countries. This constant influx of students and young professionals is creating a genuine requirement for high-quality, welllocated rental properties. Alexandra Park Apartments is perfectly placed to cater to this demand
As the project is located just a short commute from the financial district, Kirkstall Forge and the LGI, the development will appeal to a variety of professionals working across a number of different sectors. With accessible parking available the apartments will be desirable to professionals who require secure car parking.
Situated in the heart of The Knowledge Quarter, Alexandra Park Apartments will appeal to students looking for high-quality living. The development is expected to appeal to international students on scholarships from their embassy, students studying at Masters and PHD level, and student nurses. Iconinc - The Glassworks, a purpose build student development located 0.2 miles from Alexandra Park Apartments, has proven this demand as it sits at a 100% occupancy rate for the current academic year.
This mixed rental demographic ensures investment durability and a large degree of dynamism. High demand in this part of Leeds has been proven with neighbouring schemes like IconInc, meaning your investment is futureproofed with long-term rental demand and growth.
