Not only is Sheffield the UK’s 4th largest and most centrally located city, benefitting from excellent transport links (road, air and rail), multi-billion pound regeneration and regional hub status, but is also one of the UK’s safest cities, making Sheffield a premier place to invest.

Savills predict that the region of the UK that Sheffield is located in will experience capital growth of 20.4% over the next five years. However, with Sheffield being the largest city in and hub of its region, capital growth of around 30% over the next five years for boutique developments such as Taray Towers should be expected.

Sheffield lies at the centre of the UK, so no matter where you are travelling from, the city is easily accessible. With 4 airports, including the UK’s newest International Airport, within less than an hour's drive from Sheffield, it is easy to get to from overseas destinations.

The recently refurbished mainline train station in Sheffield now offers an impressive entry to the City, with fast direct links to and from London and Scotland. A number of cross-country routes link Sheffield directly with cities and towns in the 4 corners of the country.

Sheffield boasts two universities with over 57,000 UK and overseas students; The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. The University of Sheffield's main campus is half-a-mile west of the
city centre. It is a member of the Russell Group, and ranked the 40th best University in the world and 20th in Europe. Sheffield Hallam University, which has its main campuses 1 mile south west of the city centre, is the eighth largest university in the UK, with over 33,000 students.

The University of Sheffield was voted the Sunday Times University of the Year and the city has been voted the Most Popular UK Student Destination. Subjects of excellence between the two universities include Engineering, Property, Design and Dentistry.

According to the University of Sheffield, 92% of Sheffield graduates find employment, with the two universities producing around 12,000 high-calibre graduates each year, a large percentage of whom choose to stay in Sheffield, boosting rental demand.
