Plans submitted for new employment regeneration scheme in Stockport

Chestergate - Plans submitted for new employment regeneration scheme in Stockport

PJD Properties have submitted a planning application for 5 light industrial B1/B8 (trade counter) units totalling just under 13,000 sq ft on a 1.26 acre site located on the edge of Stockport town centre. The 1.26 acre site is located at the corner of Chestergate and King Street West. The site, which was acquired in the 1970’s, and previously housed Chestergate Mill until its demolition in 2009, is currently used for car sales, with a children’s play centre occupying a warehouse at the front of the site. Plans submitted allow for five units, ranging in size from 1,880 sq ft to 4,000 sq ft, with up to 59 car parking spaces. A sensitive design and landscape solution has evolved out of Pozzoni Architects and Square Yard working closely with Steven Levrant Heritage Architecture; a team led by J10 Planning, with agency advice provided by Avison Young. Mentor House, which fronts King Street West opposite Weir Mill in a corner of the site will be retained due to its protected “locally listed” status but does offer another opportunity. Mark Davies, Director at PJD Property, said: “The site has changed considerably over the last five decades and whilst we have considered many alternative uses none of these have been found to be viable. I believe that the proposals will secure its redevelopment for a sustainable employment generating use. It’s in a great location, minutes away from Stockport town centre, the rail station with direct access to the M60 and the A6. “I am confident there will be a lot of interest in the units and I am prepared to speculatively develop the site given the demand for this scale of unit and location.”

Incredible Investment Opportunity for 10-12 apartments achieving a yield of 7.35% in Stockport (SK2)

Wellington Road South - Incredible Investment Opportunity for 10-12 apartments achieving a yield of 7.35% in Stockport (SK2)

Hello Investors, I have another amazing investment property for you this week with a yield of 7.35%.  Just amazing!

Its a huge plot over 4,000 sqft with 2 on site car parks.  The property is currently being utilised as 2 large house shares with a total of 16 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms.  I believe that out of this development you would be able to achieve 10-12 1 bedroom apartments which would each rent for approx. £600 per calendar month to good tenants (working professionals) if finished to a high standard, with modern kitchens and the inclusion of white goods.   This would bring in a return of £6000 to £7200 per calendar month which is £72,000 to £86,400 per annum.

The property is on the market with MBRE for £1 million and the works would cost around £70,000 to £100,000 which, taking into consideration the rental prices, would achieve you a fantastic yield of 7.35% but also in doing this it would significantly increase the resale value.

For more information on this property or for more information on buy-to-let deals in Stockport, please do not hesitate to give me a call on 0161 474 8668.

Stockport into best buy-to-let investment area Top Ten

News   Contractor appointed for 2 Stockport Exchange - Stockport into best buy-to-let investment area Top Ten

Stockport has entered the top 10 of buy-to-let investment areas in England and Wales, in new data published by specialist mortgage lender LendInvest.

It sits in second place, behind only Colchester in Essex, in the new quarterly Buy To Let Index Reporthaving moved up a whopping 18 places from 20th in last July’s figures. In more excellent news for the BTL scene in the north-west, Manchester is one place below its near-neighbour.

The research looked at each postcode area around England and Wales and focused on a combination of four critical metrics: transaction volumes, rental price growth, rental yield and capital value growth.

From these four metrics, Stockport has performed particularly well in capital gains with a growth of 6.34% and has been helped by rents rising by 3.18% over the same period. Strong yields of 5.29%, backed by reasonable figures in capital gains and rent growth, has helped Manchester move two places up in the index and the city’s buoyant property scene seems to be rubbing off on nearby areas. Elsewhere in the north of England, both Leeds and Harrogate feature in the top 20 at 12 and 20 respectively.

The Midlands also ranks highly in the new LendInvest data, with Birmingham joined by Wolverhampton and Coventry in the top 10.

Ian  Boden, Sales Director at LendInvest, commented, “The growing opportunity for BTL investors in these regions reflects a knock on effect of investment in these key cities. Locking down a solid prediction of how the landscape will look into the New Year is no easy task. In this instance, we know it is best to let the data do the talking.”
