  • Trinity church

    A modern refurbishment of a beautiful church in the heart of Greater Manchester, these studios and 1-bed apartments are sure to attract attention from investors due to their close proximity to both Manchester and Bolton Town Centres.

    A former church, this historic Grade II listed building will become a three-storey apartment block with 42 studio flats. A four-storey apartment block will also be built to the east of the church and a two-storey apartment block, called The Lodge, will be put up on the Crook Street side. These two buildings will contain 40 apartments between them.

    Although designed as a residential

    buy-to-let, Trinity Church is also aimed at the student market due to its location at the centre of one of the UKs largest student hubs, with four universities within its locality.

    This landmark building stands in the centre of Bolton and will act as a perfect location for students who will be on the doorstep of the areas shops restaurants and bars. Bolton is part of the larger Greater Manchester

    region, which is one of the largest nerve centres for students in the UK; Trinity Church is located at the centre of this, being only a five minute walk away from Bolton University and within a short bus ride of Manchester University, UCLAN and Lancaster University.

    The fully fitted studio rooms will act as luxury one bed apartments which will suit the needs of a high-end occupant who would desire to be convened with a large boutique en-suite shower room and a flat screen TV already fitted with sky.

    Students choosing to live in Trinity Church will gain access to a new state-of-the-art 48 million transport interchange which is planned to be completed by Easter 2015, which will ensure that students can explore their new home-away-from-home with ease.

    Investing in Trinity Church offers a unique advantage over other student accommodation projects, due to the huge opportunity for capital growth as the individual units can be re-sold on the open market as a traditional buy-to-let investment.

    Why Invest in student accommodation


    Continuing to outperform all other forms of property investment in the UK; private, boutique student residences are one of the most lucrative ways of expanding an investment portfolio, due to the stable yields and low void periods which are common for this type of property.

    The demand for high quality student accommodation is showing no signs of abating, as UK university places are still heavily oversubscribed with only 10 places available for every 14 applicants, placing university-owned accommodation under an increasing amount of strain, as they struggle to provide the standard of accommodation required in todays market place.

    This trend for a higher-standard of living is fuelled by the globalisation of the Higher Education market and the increase in the number of students applying to UK universities from outside of the UK.

    Students from the European Union and overseas currently account for over a sixth of the UKs student population, with the number of non-domiciled students studying at Higher Education institutions

    Since moving in, everything has been of the highest standard and living in one of their properties is a great opportunity. So good, that I would be more than glad to return next year.Michael Ainscow, 1st Year UndergraduateNelson Square, Bolton

  • Bolton like many of its Greater Manchester counterparts,

    was born out of the industrial revolution. Although

    much of the marvellous Victorian architecture remains,

    the cotton industry which Bolton was famous for has

    since dwindled; retail and warehousing are now the

    main focus of the region with over 40% of employment

    in the locality supplied by these industries.

    Middlebrook Retail Park has transformed Boltons

    recent history; centred around Bolton Wanderers

    25,000 seater football stadium, the park has created

    4,500 jobs for the local populace and continues to grow

    with approximately 50 retail units already operating at

    the park.

    This developing town of Greater Manchester is

    completely accessible by air, rail and road the

    town operates a 12 minute train-ride to Manchester

    City Centre and also has a direct link to Manchester

    International Airport. The borough of Greater

    Manchester has recently declared that Bolton is to be

    the centre-point of its travel industry, with a 48 million


    transport interchange planned to be completed by

    Easter 2015; creating a 21st century transport hub and

    further enhancing accessibility around and from the


    Also in place are plans to open a new cinema, a

    shopping area, and to transform Bolton into the main

    hub for town centre offices in North Greater Manchester

    plans such as this were created because of the

    specialised labour the skilled workforce of Boltons

    university and colleges can offer to the area, once


    Bolton Community College and most importantly,

    the University of Bolton, provide a high standard of

    education. The university has around 13,000 students

    and teaches over 30 accredited courses. The numbers

    of students is set to rise in upcoming years, aided by

    launches of Bolton One in February 2012, a 31 million

    health, leisure and research centre and the new

    Business school which opened over a year later, in

    March 2013.

    Boltonhigher education

    The university originally opened as a mechanics institute in 1824, before gaining university status in 2005. Since then, the student populace has grown to around 13,000 students and the university has created strong links with industries, which has allowed it to create over

    30 professionally accredited courses.

    The benefits of the universitys links with industry can be seen through the large amount of graduates who go straight into employment after study a survey of students who graduated in 2010 and 2011 found that 80% of all graduates were employed or in further study or training, 6 months after graduation.

    More and more students continue to be attracted to the university; currently there are five applications for every

    one place at the university and these applications are only set to increase in the upcoming years, as a direct result of a major regeneration project at the university. In early 2012, a 100,000 moot law court was opened; this successful launch was followed by the opening of Bolton One. A 31 million health & research centre.

    The Bolton Business School also opened in early 2013 and houses business, law and accountancy students.

    Bolton University see student happiness as its top priority and guarantees that individuals feel valued in their time whilst studying. The University does this by operating small teaching groups on many courses to ensure that students are a name and not a number. Also, The Times reported that Bolton University has among the lowest fees of any UK university in the 2013/2014

    academic year; this acknowledges the universitys efforts to make sure that prospective students receive a fair price. The fruits of this labour can be seen in a Guardian report which found that 80% of their learners are satisfied at the university.

    The university currently only supplies 615 beds through student halls and with a student populace of over 13,000, demand is currently far out reaching supply; this has led to a drastic need for private accommodation, to help house students who currently cannot

    find lodgings. Seventeen per cent of these students seeking accommodation come from outside the UK; these students have a preference for high-class purpose built student accommodation and this adds to the already-intensifying need for student accommodation.
