Investment Details

The development is well-served by local amenities and transport links due to its location on Redeness Street just a 9-minute walk from York’s city centre.

Icona compares favourably with other new build developments in terms of pricing. Other new builds in the area are on average priced at £475 per sq/ft, whereas Icona’s average price per sq. ft is £442.

The attraction of investing in York is the scarcity of new builds. Due to planning restrictions, new developments cannot exceed five storeys, so you will not come across high-rise buildings that are commonplace in other cities such as Manchester. This has buoyed property prices which are rising higher than the national average at 4% last year and 7% up on 2018 prices. The growth trajectory combined with modest pricing will allow investors in Icona to achieve good levels of capital growth. There is also the option to rent apartments as serviced accommodation which can achieve higher yields.
