A great investment in the heart of Manchester
Manchester is a pillar of the Northern powerhouse, and there’s a very simple reason for that: it’s fantastic economy. The city contributes some £54bn to the UK’s GVA each year, and was ranked the ninth strongest regional economy by property consultants JLL, beating major cities such as Barcelona, Edinburgh and Berlin.
If that wasn’t enough, it’s own GVA contribution of 2.5% exceeds the UK average of 2.3%, putting it firmly on the list of one of the UK’s top performing cities.
The city’s economy is set to expand even further with the addition of HS2 in 2033, reducing the travel time to London to 1h 7min. An estimated 180,000 new jobs will be created in the region by 2040 due to the increased business presence that HS2 is set to attract.
