About Castle Developments

We’re a privately-owned strategic land acquisition and property development company, with over 95 years’ combined experience across our team. With an approach that is personal, transparent and efficient, we’re able to work to tight turnaround times. Our Mayfair office is located in the heart of the London property district, ideal for sourcing opportunities and developing industry contacts.

Our Team

With a highly experienced team at the helm of Castle Developments, we’re able to in-house the majority of our processes. Our diverse team includes a planning director, a legal consultant, a finance director and an acquisitions specialist. You can find out more about our team in their profiles below.

Our Partners

We work very closely with our primary funding partner, Reditum Capital – an established, specialist financier with a particular focus on property – we even share an office space and a finance department. This relationship means that we’re able to respond quickly to new opportunities, and also effectively doubles the scope of our expertise and experience.
