MELT Property is a group of property development and investment companies which was originally formed in 2002. In the last seventeen years, we have we’ve built over 100 properties in London, Gloucestershire and Kent with with values of over £22m.
The development projects we are currently working on have end values of around £50m.
Over time our attention has shifted from residential development to mixed use projects and commercial development. We now have a particular focus on the hotel and serviced accomodation market. We’ve crowdfunded over £1.5m in equity for our current projects and plan to crowdfund a further £5m in equity in the next six months.
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.
Our mission is to create inspiring contemporary buildings that enhance and compliment the places they are set in. Our developments win awards for their quality of design and sensitivity to their environment and surroundings and regularly break the price ceiling in the markets for which they are developed. We believe that, whatever the price of a property, it should be well designed.
Current projects include:
– ONE62, a contemporary development of six new build flats in Hythe, Kent
– Lime Grove, Tuffley, Gloucester; a development of 12 new build houses plus the conversion of a Victorian former school building into 7 flats.
– 21-23 Market St, Cinderford. The refurbishment and extension of a bakery and derelict adjacent premises to accommodate 10 flats and two commercial premises.
We also have a commercial mixed use project located in central London which we anticipate will contain 95,000 sq ft of commercial space with end values in excess of £50m.
