Why Invest in Liverpool | Flambard Williams

Why Invest in Liverpool


Liverpool is currently one of the fastest-growing cities in the UK. It has the largest regeneration in the North West (Liverpool Waters), home to the best yields for short term lets which is growing on average between 4.5-5.5% per year and the north west expected to grow by 24% over the next 5 years.

Where to invest in Liverpool?

    • Liverpool Waters – £5.5bn redevelopment (highlighted red)
      • This area is being regeneration by the Peel Group and will transfer Liverpool over the next 10-15 years.
      • This will consist of commercial and residential property along with new cruise terminals and Everton Football stadium
