Medina Capital Investments (MCI) is a residential and mixed use property development company based in central London and was established in 2010. We are focused on acquiring assets within London, The Home Counties, Cambridgeshire and South East England. MCI is renowned for being an urban developer with the capability to maximise an assets potential by utilising our in house urban planning team, this is what sets us apart. In recent years, MCI have set precedents with our planning expertise in various locations, significantly enhancing asset values benefiting both landowners and our investors. We were one of the first private developers to purchase unconditional land and package 100% affordable housing schemes and continue to be ahead of the curve with new ideas created to maximise land values and return on investment.
Our innovative approach to the planning process dictates that we only acquire development opportunities where we can truly add value for all parties involved, including the local community. Historically, we have gained significant local support towards our planning applications by ensuring we engage at an early stage through pre-application consultations. Not only has support arisen from individual residents, but also by resident and business associations representing huge swathes of the communities we operate in, which is almost unheard of. MCI have provided more onsite affordable housing than required within the majority of our projects and have offered to fund community schemes to enhance areas we work. This forms the basis on which Medina Capital Investments inspire confidence of landowners, communities and our investors.
During 2019, MCI expanded by establishing an office in Cambridge with the intention of widening our demographic and continue to evolve.
Nidal, the company’s founder, specialises in land acquisition and urban development. Nidal started his career by creating a development team for one of the South coast’s largest commercial agents, Goadsby (2002-2006) where he personally acquired residential and mixed use development opportunities for some of the UK’s largest house builders, delivering over 3000 residential units.
Focusing his planning and property law skills toward urban regeneration, Nidal inevitably became a developer in his own right, acquiring, delivering and retaining assets as investments. In 2009, Nidal relocated to London identifying the opportunity post financial crisis, where Medina Capital evolved. With almost two decades experience in the field of acquisition and planning, Nidal has driven Medina Capital Investments to become one of London’s core urban regeneration companies that has delivered land with a gross development value in excess of £100mil.
