Hamilton Hub Overview
Within very easy reach of Liverpool City Centre and the universities, Hamilton Hub is an investment property opportunity delivering purpose built student accommodation on the west side of the River Mersey in the Birkenhead area of Merseyside.
With planning approved in early 2018, the project is a collaboration between the developer and Wirral Council and will see an existing former office block refurbished along with a new build section to supply modern housing for at least 200 student tenants.
The area’s close proximity to Liverpool’s universities whilst being the other side of the river means the cheaper accommodation rates has driven demand for quality student accommodation in the area which Hamilton Hub will ultimately help service.
142 studios and 58 en suite pods come fully furnished with most offering good views out towards Liverpool’s waterfront. There will also be a sheltered “secret” garden area providing quality outdoor space.
A great location for students (see more below), Hamilton Hub is just a short stroll from the historic Hamilton Square with the immediate proximity catering well for young adults. Wirral Waters, the UK's largest regeneration programme, is also just a short walk away.
To help ensure maximum occupancy levels, Hamilton Hub will offer residents communal lounge and break out areas, gym, laundry and bike storage. Additionally the all inclusive rent will provide students with ultra fast broadband and no bills.
