MELT Property is a group of property development and investment companies formed in 2002. In the last 18 years, we’ve built over 100 properties in London, Gloucestershire, and Kent with values of over £22m. Our current development projects have end values of over £60m. We have a project pipeline of over £150m in development value.
Over time our attention has shifted from residential development to mixed-use projects and commercial development with a particular focus on development for the hotel and serviced accommodation market. To date, we have raised over £8m in equity for our projects.
While our primary focus is on property development, we also have built up a residential and commercial property portfolio of over over 50 properties. This includes Danby Lodge, a Grade II listed former hunting lodge set in a commanding position within thousands of acres of statutory forest in the Royal Forest of Dean which we let on a short-term basis.
DESIGN LED DEVELOPMENT
When evaluating and structuring projects, we employ a philosophy called Design-led Development. This enables us to deliver better value for money in the properties we build. By focusing on the value that inspired contemporary design can produce, we deliver more for less.
We aim to achieve optimum mixes of complementary use and innovative design that deliver exceptional spaces, individually tailored to those who use them. We believe that the spaces people use should reflect who they are and what they believe.
RIGOROUS RISK MANAGEMENT
Our philosophy of Rigorous Risk Management consists of a set of well structured due diligence processes that enable us to identify risks and quantify associated costs. This complements our design-led approach and enables us to minimise risk and maximise return for us and our investors.
We aim to deliver exceptionally designed contemporary spaces that reflect people’s personalities and choices and which are tailored to the way people live their lives. We build inspiring contemporary buildings that complement and enhance the places they are set in. Our developments win awards for their quality of design and sensitivity to their environment and surroundings. We regularly break the price ceiling in the markets we develop. We believe that, whatever the price of a property, it should be well designed.
Our ONE62 development in Hythe has been nominated for three accolades in the British Homes Awards 2020: Small development of the year, Development of the year (under £10m), and Apartment development of the year!
The prestigious organisation has expressed that despite this turbulent time, they had an amazing response to entries and the calibre of projects was exceptional, making the competition extremely tough. Given this circumstance, we are mighty proud of making it through to the shortlist.
