Marne Properties Pty Ltd (“Marne”), founded in 1990, specialises in developing and managing residential, commercial and industrial properties throughout inner Melbourne. The history of Marne, however, dates back to 1969 when one of our founding directors undertook the development of an industrial property in the Melbourne suburb of Maidstone.
Marne is a large, privately-owned company. The directors of Marne are collectively responsible for developing in excess of one thousand properties with a present day value of more than AUD $1 billion in areas such as Port Melbourne, Melbourne CBD, Hawthorn, Malvern, St Kilda, Elwood, Armadale, South Yarra, Collingwood, Ivanhoe and Middle Park
Peter Gyopar is one of the founding directors of Marne. Peter has in excess of 45 years experience in property development. Peter is the managing director of Marne.
Guy Jalland is a founding director of Marne and holds a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Melbourne and is a senior executive with Consolidated Press Holdings Limited.
Andrew Gyopar, a director of Marne, holds a Master of Business (Property), Master of Project Management and a Graduate Diploma in Facilities Management. Andrew is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the commercial asset portfolio as well as project design and development, marketing, consultant co-ordination and project delivery for Marne.
One of Marne’s projects, completed in 2001, comprise 155 residential apartments in Collins St Melbourne. It was awarded the “2002 Excellence in Construction Award for Existing Building ($10 million to $50 million category)” by the Master Builders Association of Victoria.
Marne’s most recently completed project is in the thriving inner bayside suburb of Port Melbourne. The project consists of 171 residential apartments with a completed value in excess of $70 million. Purchasers of apartments within this development successfully tenanted their apartments within a few weeks of offering them to the rental market.
Marne’s success is attributed to its market knowledge, being able to select properties to purchase for development which appreciate in value ahead of general market trend. Most of the properties developed by Marne were offered to Marne in “off market” transactions due to Marne’s reputation amongst property promoters and real estate agents as a consistent purchaser of quality real estate stock.
Marne’s philosophy of offering carefully selected and professionally completed properties to investors and owner occupiers resulted in Marne having a substantial following from repeat buyers.
Marne has secured a number of properties for future development. These projects will have a market capitalisation of approximately $200 million.
