Introducing Forty/8

Earlier this month, we launched our new sales brand Forty/8, offering high-quality, contemporary apartments for sale in centrally-located city and town centre sites. The name Forty/8 celebrates the year our family-run company was founded – 1948.


All of our properties offered for sale will now be released exclusively under the Forty/8 brand to the public and investors. Forty/8 has over 360 apartments available for purchase, with hundreds more in the pipeline.

As a family run business, we enjoy working closely with the housebuilders we partner with. Forty/8 allows us to sell more apartments directly to buyers, without the need for agents, forging a stronger relationship with our contractors and customers alike.

The first developments for sale by Forty/8 will be:

Commenting on the launch of Forty/8, Richard Forman, Delph’s Head of Sales and Marketing, said:

Richard Forman, Head of Sales and Marketing

“City living is growing in popularity but supply is failing to keep pace with demand in the towns and cities we’re targeting. Constrained supply and low interest rates have created conditions which are now close to perfect for investment in a buoyant residential market in key cities and larger towns in the midlands and the north.

“Forty/8 is an exciting new concept for us. Young professionals and older downsizers are a significant demographic in Bedford for example and there’s clearly an appetite within this group for stand-out apartments, centrally located with great shops, restaurants and a vibrant evening economy on the doorstep.

“All Forty/8 developments offer an enviable lifestyle and we’re anticipating significant interest. We’re looking forward to announcing new additional Forty/8 locations in due course”.

Targeted areas

In acquiring sites for Forty/8, Delph is focusing on cities and towns that have experienced a recent urban renaissance, driven by inward investment and a buoyant local job market, therefore providing excellent capital growth opportunities.

Reliable investment

Forty/8 is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delph Property Group and each Forty/8 development will be fully funded by the Group.
