Liverpool Waters scheme launched in London and Hong Kong

Investors in London and Hong Kong were targeted over the weekend as part of the latest push for the £5bn Liverpool Waters property scheme.

Park Central, a new development, was launched simultaneously in both cities on September 8-9, to the customer base of agents BuyAssociation.

The London launch was held in the Devonshire Club.

Park Central comprises 129 one- and two-bedroom apartments set across 13 storeys.

All the units will come fully furnished to a high specification, and the development’s commercial, residential and leisure facilities will form a 24-hour community in the area.

Located directly opposite the new 16-acre Prospect Park, Park Central is effectively an island site that will have uninterrupted views of either the parkland or the canal riverway towards the city centre.

The development is expected to be completed by mid-2020 as part of land owner Peel’s wider £5bn scheme to regenerate the Liverpool waterfront.

Caroline Marshall-Roberts, BuyAssociation chief executive, said: “This is a really exciting project and we’ve already seen a huge amount of interest from investors from all over the UK and internationally.

“Liverpool is such a thriving and vibrant city, and it’s now seen as one of the top places in the country for property investment, with fantastic rental yields and strong house price growth predictions.

“There’s been huge amounts of investment in Liverpool over the past decade since it was named the European Capital of Culture, which has been amazing for the local economy, and this project is going to bring even more to the local area and really transform the waterfront.”

BuyAssociation is a property investment company with more than a decade of experience in identifying and launching real estate investment opportunities from around the world.

Working with a community of developers and property experts to help investors grow their property portfolios and maximise their returns, BuyAssociation is exclusively launching the Park Central project with property developers Romal Capital.

The wider £5bn regeneration scheme will see the creation of five new neighbourhoods right on the River Mersey waterfront.

The development is part of the ambitious Liverpool Waters regeneration project, which is set within the UNESCO designated World Heritage Site of Liverpool Mercantile City and will dramatically transform the historic docklands area of the city.

Alongside the Central Docks neighbourhood will be Princes Dock, Clarence Dock, Bramley Moore Dock and King Edward Rise, which together will create more than 9,000 new residential apartments, offering residents world-class leisure facilities, as well as restaurants, bars and cafes alongside a cultural hub and retail spaces that will bring the area back to life.

The 60-hectare scheme will also include 315,000 sq m of business space and 53,000 sq m of hotel and conference facilities, as well as a new £55m cruise liner terminal, a £25m ferry terminal and £19m of investment into new roads and infrastructure.
