specification of the houses and apartments is to a high and modern standard.

The Barrel Yard is the new residential scheme located minutes from Manchester City Centre. The close proximity makes it the perfect setting for young professionals and families who want to be close to Deansgate’s boutique shops and Oxford Road’s theatres and music venues.


Manchester is the UK’s second largest urban economy. Famed for its music venues, shopping, Premiership football clubs, and architecture, the diverse social scene in Manchester and its surrounding areas has enabled the city centre to become one of the most sought-after addresses in the country.

Home to over half a million people, it is a city whose population has out-grown its current housing supply and is in serious need of new stock, making way for a host of new investment as the construction industry begins to pick up pace. According to Jones Lang LaSalle, Manchester house prices are set to grow by 4.5 per cent over the next five years and HSBC has identified the city as being in the ‘Top 4 Buy-To-Let Hotspots ‘in the country, showing an average rental yield of 7.6 per cent.

The scheme is part of the wider regeneration project for The Queen’s brewery area. An historic Grade II Listed building which became a landmark of the city and served as the headquarters for legendary Manchester brewers Hydes for over 100 years,

The Queen’s Brewery sadly closed its doors for the final time in 2012, leaving this beautiful period building to stand empty and abandoned; a stark reminder of Manchester’s industrial past. Fast-forward two years and a new generation is now set to be exposed to the hand fed hoppers and romantic clock tower which marks the former Victorian brewery’s history, as new life is breathed into the building through a refined conversion which has seen it transformed into high  quality residential accommodation. The area neighbouring The Queen’s Brewery, Hulme, has recently undergone what was regarded at the time as one of the most ambitious  regeneration projects in the United Kingdom.

Over £24m worth of public sector regeneration funds has been invested in projects focusing upon local economic development, physical and environmental improvements and enhancements in the quality of life. These, in turn, have generated substantial outputs in terms of jobs, land development, infrastructure improvements and business development. This regeneration project has seen new and improved housing in the area, (and surrounding areas), which has proven very popular and is in great demand, making it a much more  attractive place to live. As the level of construction activity in Manchester continues to build, so do the opportunities for buy-to-let investors to acquire property in prime sites where  demand is high, which will yield strong returns for years to come.
