The Hive

Last but not least, the Hive is an exciting new development based in Luton. Prices for an apartment in this development start at just £179,950, which is highly affordable for the area considering Luton is located so close to London. 

Stylish development is perfect for young professional tenants looking for a temporary place to live that is close to transport links, local bars and restaurants, and local amenities. 

Here are some of the key features of The Hive: 

  • Private terraces for residents to enjoy 
  • Onsite parking and bike storage 
  • 24-hour security and a concierge service 
  • A residents’ only app 
  • Transport links connecting residents to London in a matter of minutes 

Why Is The Hive Good for Young Professional Tenants?

The location of the Hive is what makes it really stand out as a property investment opportunity for those who want to target young professionals. 

London is one of the UK’s most popular cities for young professionals to live and work in. This is due to the range of business opportunities in the capital.  

The main issue, however, with working in London, is the high rental costs associated with the region. Many young people are now choosing to live on the outskirts of London in commuter towns such as Luton to take advantage of lower rental prices. 

With the popularity of remote working, many people no longer need to spend five days a week in the office and instead will choose hybrid working, which allows them to work remotely on set days of the week. 

The Hive allows investors to take advantage of the high tenant demand from those working in London, without having to pay London prices. For this reason, the Hive is an excellent investment opportunity to consider in 2022.
