This investment offers equity investors the opportunity to invest into a residential development scheme comprising 41 residential dwellings located on the riverside in Norwich City, UK. The planning consent (REF 15/01810/F) and listed building consent (REF 15/01811/L) permits the development which also includes 21 parking spaces.
The site is the last remaining waterfront development located directly opposite Norwich's popular leisure and retail riverside complex.
The residential dwellings are a mixture of 1 - 4 bedroom apartments and townhouses, all up to national space standards.
The forecasted GDV is £11,125,000 with a senior debt facility of £8,343,515 (including interest). The site has been acquired for £1,200,000 which represents 10.78% of the GDV, thus being well below the ceiling price of 25%. Due to acquiring the site for 10.78% of the GDV, it means that additional targeted profit goes into the development returns hence the forecasted return on equity is uncommonly high.
The construction costs have been priced at £1,400 per sq-m which when taking into account an additional 10% contingency for construction costs and 10% for professional fees, makes the costs above BCIS Online for the local area. These numbers are detailed within the feasibility study below.
The proposed investment turnaround time is 24 months which is based on 12-18 months to build with a 6-12 month sales period. The sales strategy is to put the properties on the market 6 months before completion of the construction. As the construction is expected to begin in February 2020 the units will be put on the market between February 2021 and September 2021.
The current GDV is determined by using sold comparables for similar properties in and around the local area (typically within 1/2 mile radius) which have sold in the last 12 months. Details of the sold comparables we have used can be seen when downloading the Investment Memorandum.
The scheme, benefits from planning permission for the redevelopment of the Grade II listed former public house and a ground up residential block centred around a communal courtyard and 21 allocated undercroft car parking spaces
The former public house will be refurbished to create 2 residential dwellings comprising 1 x 1 bedroom unit and 1 x 4 bedroom unit. The newly constructed dwellings will comprise 6 x studio apartments, 7 x 1 bedroom apartments, 21 x 2 bed apartments, 1 x 3 bed apartment. In addition to the apartments, there will also be 1 x 3 bedroom townhouse and 2 x 4 bedrooms townhouses.
The development is located adjacent to the River Wensum and has been designed in a way to ensure that the majority of apartments benefit from river views. It is also a stone's throw from Norwich’s popular riverside retail & leisure development and the home of Norwich City Football Club. It is also situated less 0.5 miles of the city centre, less than 0.5 mile away from Norwich railway station and is close to Norwich’s inner ring road which gives convenient transportation access around the city.
The proposed exit strategy is to sell the units on the open market, with sales expected to begin 6 months before the completion of the construction works using an on-site furnished show apartment.
The apartments will be marketed with local estate agents, with the target market being a mixture of owner occupiers, first time buyers, and single let landlords. As the developer is registered with Help to Buy, we are able to target this additional market.
Based on sold comparables we expect to be able to sell the properties for the following prices:
1 bed flats - £195,000-£210,000, 2 bed flats - £264,000 - £316,000 and 3 bed flats - £388,000 -£398,000
3 & 4 bed townhouses £450,000 - £510,000
*These sales estimates have been supported by a development sales appraisal report from two estate agents based in Norwich, one of which you can download via the documents above.
