Derby has seen property prices underperforming over the past twenty years when compared with the rest of England and Wales, however, they are improving and it is felt that the significant regeneration schemes along with other recognition of its potential, e.g. its identification as a 'Top 25 European City of the Future' by fDi, will help the local property market to out-perform other areas.
As England's most central city, Derby is served by extensive transport networks connecting it directly to London, Newcastle, Sheffield and Cardiff, to name a few. Derby is also the home of significant employers, in particular leading transport manufacturers including Rolls Royce and Toyota.
This development is conveniently located close to the central business district and it is ideal for commuters. It is also a short walk to the Intu Shopping Centre (formerly Westfields), other excellent leisure facilities and some good local schools (not forgetting the University).
