Cardiff is the UK’s 11th largest city. With the number of people living in the Welsh capital set to rise further by 25% by 2034 – the city’s population is projected to increase at a faster rate than all other core cities, surpassing even London.

Employment in Cardiff is expected to grow by 12% by 2030, outpacing the wider UK forecast of 8% and bringing some 27,600 new jobs to the area. For investors, Cardiff is a growing city showing several signs of positive trends.

Home to three world-class universities, Cardiff is an ideal location for student property investment. There are approximately 40,000 people studying in the city and a shortage of 21,016 managed bed spaces (Knight Frank research). The current imbalance of supply and demand has helped the city outperform the rest of the UK in student accommodation rental growth.

The development itself is situated just a ten-minute walk away from the University of South Wales and is also within easy reach of Cardiff University and Cardiff Metropolitan University campuses and the city’s centre.
