A huge factor behind the ever-growing population and the market growth seen in Manchester is the huge regeneration efforts in the city.
Manchester is one of the premier UK regeneration areas, and billions has been spent regenerating the previously run-down city into one of the most exciting places to live and work.
Mega-projects like MediaCityUK and Spinningfields have introduced two world-class business destinations.
Here, huge organisations like the BBC have left London to open a major base of operations in the Northern Powerhouse.
It’s no surprise to learn then that Manchester, alongside Liverpool, was voted in the top 10 destinations in the world for business start-ups.
And with other projects like NOMA, creating four million sq.ft . of retail and leisure space, and a fantastic city-wide tram system, Manchester is one of the most ideal places to live.
In fact, Manchester was voted the best UK city to live in, according to the Global Liveability Survey.
The survey scores 140 cities across the globe based on factors like health care, education, culture, environment, and infrastructure.
Despite this appealing living and working experience, prices in the area are still affordable.
Compared to London, the cost of living in Manchester including rent is a whopping 31.85% lower according to Numbeo.
These regeneration efforts have played a considerable part in Manchester growth, and have completely transformed the city into an internationally recognised destination.
