The Melo Group is a family-owned & operated real estate development firm specializing in the construction of high-quality residential buildings. “We’re particularly skilled at researching and locating areas with strong return potential for development and we make a point of remaining personally involved in all projects from beginning to end,” says Carlos Melo, whose father started developing condominiums in Buenos Aires more than half a century ago. “I remember being about 4 years old and playing with my toy cars in piles of sands at construction sites while my dad was at work,” says Martin Melo. “Today, all of us are involved in day-to-day operations, especially our father. We’re at the job site every day. On our time off, it’s all about our families, our wives and children.” The family moved to Miami in 2001 as the Argentinean economy was collapsing. In 2011, they built Miami’s first new condo tower after the real estate crash. Their newest development, Aria On The Bay, is slated to be their “masterpiece” in this country; TheMeloGroup.com.
