Cannon Street Overview

Situated in the heart of one of the North’s most promising cities, The Heaton Group is proud to bring Cannon Street to market, a completed block of 14 tenanted apartments.

Recently voted as the UK’s most improved City, Preston is home to this ideally located development, taking advantage of the influx of young professionals into the area. With UCLan, Lancaster University and Edge Hill University, the area has seen a huge increase in graduate retention, with 37% of graduates staying in the area for work.

Great trains and bus links also provide easy access to Manchester, Liverpool and beyond. Since its completion the apartments have been in high demand among potential tenants, something we anticipate continuing in the future. The apartments benefit from modern, high-gloss kitchens and bathrooms, neutral floor coverings and some quirky features such as a private rooftop terrace to one of the units.
