Melcor has been active for over 95 years and plans to be here for another 90 plus. The way to do that is to ensure we do the best possible job and make sure we leave a legacy for the people who buy in our communities.
Creating efficient and sustainable urban communities from the ground up and partnering with award-winning master builders who share the same vision of high standards and outstanding customer service helps create that legacy.
We pay extra attention to the details.
Melcor’s local communities, such as Willow Ridge, Legacy Ridge, Garry Station, The Canyons and Canyon Crest, are all recognized not only for their distinct themes but also for the little extras that set them apart. Upgraded entrances and landscaping, parks and trail systems, and enhanced architectural controls make for a desirable place to live as well as creating a better resale value for those who purchase in the area.
Started by the Melton family in Edmonton in 1923, the company was operated as a family real estate brokerage firm until 1976 when it shifted its focus to land development and to owning and managing investment properties under the banner of Melcor Developments Ltd.
With regional offices in Alberta, British Columbia and Arizona, Melcor now has four integrated operating divisions – community development, property development, investment property and recreational property.
Through these divisions, Melcor manages the full life cycle of real estate development from acquiring raw land, to community planning, to construction and development of builder ready residential lots and commercial sites, to constructing and managing leasable office and retail prospects.
As a family-based company, being involved in the community is a top priority. Melcor is a huge supporter of the Lethbridge Symphony, Lethbridge College and the University of Lethbridge, as well as numerous local and provincial charities.
It’s all part of going the extra step to create a legacy– in business and in southern Alberta.
