The Sorting Office is a beautifully arranged building which provides high quality modern housing whilst retaining the character of the original brick building via a sensitive regeneration and the addition of a state-of-the-art extension and roof terrace.

The development consists of a range of one bedroom, two bedroom and three bedroom apartments and duplexes across four floors. Each apartment is designed to make the most of the available light and space and comes equipped with the sort of modern fixtures and fittings demanded by tenants. In addition, each apartment and duplex at The Sorting Office will be a future-proofed HG Smart Home which utilises in-built technological solutions to help simplify and reduce energy usage and bills for the benefit of residents and landlords.

As well as being an exceptional modern development, The Sorting Office is located in the perfect place for renters only a short walk from the train station and city centre along with all of the amenities which can be found there. If the quieter side of life appeals more then The Sorting Office is minutes from Avenham and Miller Parks which offers the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Developed by the Heaton Group, a proven developer with a wealth of local experience, these homes will be the premier rental accommodation in Preston and represent a superb investment opportunity for any buy to let property investor.

HG Smart Technology

HG Smart Technology has been developed by The Heaton Group to improve the experience of everyone at The Sorting Office – the landlord, tenant and agent. The technology is designed to help people save time, money and be proactive about reducing the amount of fuel used by residents.

The key points are:

  • The Heaton Group purchases energy in bulk and act as the energy distributor to reduce costs.
  • The Heaton Group, acting as the energy distributor, shoulders the cost of standing charges.
  • Energy usage can be controlled by the tenant through a smartphone.
  • All energy usage is monitored remotely and the tenant has one monthly bill on one simple account.
  • Tenants are automatically notified when they are close to exceeding their fair usage agreement
  • Future energy usage can be forecasted ahead of time, improving the accuracy of billing

About Preston

​Preston is the third largest city in the North West and has recorded house price growth of 8% in the last year according to Rightmove to go with the city’s impressive economic growth. The City Plan is an innovative plan which has already put £434m into the Preston economy, a total which is predicted to rise to £1bn within the next 10 years. Thanks to this the city has already seen a dramatic upgrade to its main high street and the creation of a new Markets Quarter. In time it is expected that 20,000 local jobs will be created and more than 17,400 new homes will be built.

Preston’s busy railway station is a key stop on the West Coast Main Line which provides residents with convenient access to other nearby destinations such as Manchester and Liverpool, which are 40 minutes and 50 minutes away respectively. In addition Preston will benefit from the upcoming HS2 high speed rail line which will better link the city to Birmingham and London. On top of this, work is already underway to upgrade the city’s existing transport networks in order to better serve residents.
