Maslow Capital completes its 250th development deal

Maslow Capital has successfully closed its 250th development finance loan — a £7.5m facility to support the development of 33 ESG-focused homes in Bucklesham, Ipswich.

The 20-month term facility, completed by Maslow Capital's deal origination team member James Henry, will enable Castlemore Homes to deliver the eco-friendly properties — with a total GDV of £11.7m — nine of which will be affordable homes.

As part of its sustainability commitment, the developer is implementing a range of measures, including using sustainably certified timber, harvesting rainwater, and incorporating energy-efficient features, such as low-energy pendant lighting or downlights in all rooms.

The project will also benefit from integrated solar PV panels, air-source heat pumps, and remote energy management systems.

Following the completion of this deal, the lender has now helped deliver projects with a total GDV of £4bn throughout its 14-year track record.

The milestone reinforces Maslow Capital’s commitment to helping solve the UK’s structural undersupply of housing.

Since its launch in 2009, the firm has provided numerous loans for a diverse range of projects across multiple construction methodologies and asset classes — including an £18.1m facility for the modular construction of 121 co-living units in Feltham, and a £17.2m loan for the development of 60 residential units in Ealing.

Emma Burke, head of origination at Maslow Capital, said: “Over the past 14 years, we have had the privilege of collaborating with a wide range of talented developers, and it has been rewarding to witness their growth into leading players in the industry. 

“Maslow’s knowledge base has been enriched by its involvement in each one of these 250 transactions, and our diverse portfolio of loans is a testament to this. 

“We regularly draw on this experience to proactively collaborate with our clients and we take pride in offering a solutions-based approach to bringing their plans to fruition.”
