Sheffield is a leading hub for manufacturing and engineering and is home to two of the largest universities in the UK, boasting a student population of over 60,000. Situated on the edge of the peak district, it is one of the greenest cities in the UK and has the highest ratio of trees to people of any city in Europe.
The city has attracted tremendous investment from both government and industry recently. The £480MM Sheffield Heart of the City II project will see the development of the flagship HSBC building – securing nearly 3,000 jobs – along with new commercial spaces over an area stretching 1.5 million sq ft. Furthermore, 2018 has seen supercar manufacturer McLaren open a £50M innovation and manufacturing facility in the city while Boeing, the world’s largest aerospace company, opened a new factory – their first in Europe.
The city is well connected, with the planned HS2 high-speed rail link reducing travel times between Sheffield and London to 87 minutes.
Sheffield is a major player in the Northern Powerhouse and with major pull factors for talent and industry, can deliver impressive yields and capital growth for investors.
