Mill Group has incubated VESTA Property, a dedicated buy-to-let investment platform connecting sellers, buyers and investors. To date, buy-to-let property investment has been long-winded, stressful and expensive. Not anymore. The VESTA Property platform allows you to sell your property with tenants in place, find and buy properties with no chain and invest in buy-to-let without the costs of full ownership.
Community Sponsors Homes
Mill Group is incubating Community Sponsors Homes (CSH), an initiative of COMMUNITY SPONSORS CHARITY set up in 2006 as the charitable arm of Mill Group to create social impact ventures that are self-sustaining and innovative.
CSH is concerned with the housing-led inequality between wheelchair users and able-bodied people. To tackle this, the organisation is launching a residential impact investment fund, with commercial returns, to acquire accessible homes for wheelchair users and their families to privately rent. The immediate focus will be to buy properties in London, and then in other urban areas of the UK.
Green Energy Sustainable Solutions
Mill Group has invested in and supports Green Energy Sustainable Solutions, a company specialising in roof mounted or ground mounted solar PV electricity generation systems for the owners of commercial property, buildings, car parks and land in the UK. The largest installations developed by the team include the BMW Group’s MINI manufacturing plant in Cowley, Oxford and another at Lyreco’s main UK distribution centre in Telford which, with its innovative battery storage system, is one of the most advanced in the country.
Mill Group has managed over £400 million investment into the Investors in the Community Programme to improve learning environments and promote wider use of school facilities in communities across the UK. 22 schools have benefited, with a strong emphasis on design and sustainability, exceeding the Government’s vision for modern education resources. Included schools in Bexley, Bristol, Harow, Leeds, Newham, Peterborough, Redbridge and Manchester.
Mill Group has managed over £160 million investment into the Investors in the Community Programme for healthcare projects, serving over 2.5 million patients and delivering a series of new primary care facilities across the UK – partly through the Government’s Local Improvement Finance Trust (LIFT) scheme.
Mill Group has managed £140 million investment in the Investors in Housing Fund and Investors in the Community Programme to provide a foundation for urban regeneration. This delivered imaginative “mixed-use” developments where learning or cultural facilities provide a focus point for the community. Projects include the award winning Miles Platt Social Housing Regeneration and Brighton’s Jubilee Library.
