Liverpool is a city on the rise. With the North West expecting serious growth by 2027, property investors today rightly look to Liverpool and Manchester for exciting buy-to-let opportunities.
Many areas are on the cusp of enormous growth. These locations may be an excellent place to start if you are a first-time buyer in the city or looking to expand your portfolio further.
These areas include:
Since 2012, the Baltic Triangle has undergone many regenerative changes. According to The Times, substantial investment has transformed the area into one of the “coolest places to live”.
Roughly £128 million worth of investment has gone into the Baltic Triangle regen, with more capital expected for the district in the future.
Investment has created 500 new jobs, with another 800 on the way. Major regeneration in Liverpool includes re-opening St James station, making the area more accessible to visitors and commuters.
In 2020, a master plan detailed the Baltic Triangle’s regeneration pathway. This included the train station, a public park, and green corridors. These changes ensure the area will continue to thrive for years to come.
Notable development projects include One Baltic Square and Parliament Square. These apartment blocks offer stunning amenities and proximity to the waterfront and the trendy bars that make the Baltic Triangle popular with young professionals.

Liverpool has four top universities – three of which have city centre campuses. This area is known as the Knowledge Quarter – a health, technology, and science innovation hub.
The Knowledge Quarter has enjoyed significant investment since 2000. More than £1 billion has been injected into the area, promoting business investment that targets the 70,000 students calling Liverpool their home.
In collaboration with the Liverpool City Council, the area aims to close the divide between North and South England’s economies.
One of the top residential developments in the area is Element The Quarter, the first eco-development in Liverpool.
This complex utilises sustainable technology and is well situated in the heart of the Knowledge Quarter, only minutes from the University of Liverpool campus, Royal Liverpool Hospital, and the exciting student village.
