Heads-Up! Be careful if you’re thinking of investing in student accommodation.
This proposal as it proceeds, may put a financial dent into other, already-existing fringe-CBD student accommodation yields.

When you do your homework, ensure to include assessing potential risks from external, unrelated sources. This G-S project fits into the ‘T’ of a SWOT analysis.
